Automatic Pool Covers
An automatic pool cover is hands down the best option to protect young children from the hazards of open water but also offers you so much more. Pools equipped with an automatic pool cover are clearer, warmer, and simply more efficient than one without. In fact, the initial cost of the cover will eventually be recouped by energy savings and chemical retention. Since 70 percent of your heat loss occurs at the surface of the water, it is difficult to keep a pool warm in Wisconsin without spending hundreds on utility costs. Pools without covers have been compared to homes without roofs. Solar blankets are the most common type of cover, but are a lot of work and only last a couple of years before needing replacement.
So why get an automatic pool cover? Well, Premier Pools of Southeastern Wisconsin has been installing pool covers for the past ten years and we have yet to have a single customer tell us that they regretted it. Let us take a look at the benefits below.
Why Purchase and Automatic Pool Cover From Premier Pools?
Peace of Mind
Children are naturally drawn to water. You can effectively “isolate” your pool water and remove much of the temptation. According to the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of death in children under four and the second leading cause of death in children under 14(2013 CDC released study results).
Perfect in an Event of an Emergency
An ASTM Certified automatic pool cover is very strong and in an emergency, can be walked on. The surface makes an impenetrable barrier that will prevent a child from drowning if they are to run, walk, or crawl onto the cover. (Please note this is only if an automatic pool cover pump is kept on the surface at all times to remove rainwater).
Protect Your Investment
Swimming pools represent a significant investment for any homeowner and the cost is ongoing. Investing in a quality pool cover ensures your pool remains in good shape with minimal maintenance; free of contaminants and debris - especially throughout the off-season.
Regardless of the season, swimming pools constantly lose water through evaporation. This is noticeably more during the summer. Pool Covers reduce the level of water loss and slow the evaporation process. This is also good for the environment and will save you time and effort.
Use Less Chemicals
Chemicals are necessary to protect your pool and family from harmful substances like algae. The more contaminants and debris accumulate in your pool, the harder your equipment has to work. This can significantly impact the life of your pool equipment. In addition, A common problem for a pool without a cover is chlorine evaporation - particularly in the summer months. The UV rays from the sun break chlorine down through a process called oxidation. Consequently, without a pool cover, you have to constantly top your chlorine up so that the protection from the chlorine is maintained.

Cover System Styles
Undertrack cover systems use a contoured track that raises slightly above the pool deck to create a travel path for the leading edge bar of the cover. Undertrack systems with a recessed lid (shown above) are the most adaptable and economical design for free-form pools.
Undertrack systems are identical to an undertrack system except the track is flat and is flush with the deck.
Undertrack systems are ideal for rectangle pools and can be customized in several different ways to fit your design. The advantage of an undertrack system is that you do not have any aluminum track exposed on the pool decking. This is the most common method used today because of the versatility offered by the lid and coping systems. We will showcase some of those options below.
Undertrack With Deck Mounted Cover Bench
These systems are ideal for homeowners with existing pools that want to upgrade to the benefits of an automatic pool cover. The mechanism is mounted to the existing deck and a bench is built over the top. The bench can be customized to create a lounging area and can be covered with wood, composite, or extruded aluminum decking. These systems can be adapted to many different sizes and shapes.
