The PVC Winter cover are made from the same material as the PVC Safety cover and offers the same benefits but please note this cover is NOT a safety cover! The Winter cover has a good weight tolerance and can support a weight of 100kg but only offers a degree of safety because rain water can accumulate on top of the cover and this poses a threat to curious toddlers. Also the cover doesn’t lock down like the Safety cover so it’s much easier for a bigger child to open up. This cover does however provide safety for animals because they can get on and off the cover with no difficulty.
The heavy duty reinforced PVC cover is the ideal “Winter Cover” because once its fitted over your pool you can switch the pool pump off for the entire winter. Your pool water won’t turn green because it eliminates debris from influencing the chemical balance and the PVC blocks out the sunlight which reduces algae growth considerably. Your pool pump uses 12% of your household electricity so there will be a huge saving in electricity, water, chemicals but most importantly all that time saved on maintenance! When summer approaches you can remove the cover, shock treat the water and have the pool in perfect condition within 48hrs. The benefits from using the Winter cover in summer will be the increase in water temperature and the reducing of evaporation with up to 95%.
This astatically stylish cover is available in 14 x different colours so you can incorporate it with the décor of your home. We use the 550gsm PVC specifically for the use of swimming pool covers because its U.V. treated & chemical resistant and come with a 3 Year Warranty. The PVC is joined with high frequency heating, no glue is used because it will come undone within a year and no stitching is used because it will perforate your cover.
To secure the cover to the paving we use the hooks and eyelets system. Our anchoring plates are made from stainless steel, we do not use plastic or synthetic fittings because it will break and become brittle in the sun. Our plates have a double key hole to make adjustments accordingly. The plates are almost flush with the paving and has no sharp points protruding so you will never stump your toes on it and it won’t clog up with dirt either. The screws we use to anchor the plates to the surrounded paving are also stainless steel. Durable non-corrosive hooks are attached to stainless steel eyelets punched into the reinforce PVC perimeter. To take the hassle out when fitting the cover we use bungee cord tied to each hook to assist with stretching it into the key hole from the anchoring plate.
