Wouldn’t it be nice to not only be able to enter your pool immediately, without the shock of the instant temperature change to your body, but also extend the swim season year after year? Sure would! While a pool heater is the most efficient method for scoring a warm watered pool, there are other routes you can take to help heat up your pool and keep it open for a longer season.

    Maintenance and Care For Safety Covers!

    By Debbie
    Safety Covers  must always stretch tightly across the swimming pool. After the initial installation, some stretching may occur.
