A pool cover is one of the most important pool products. Therefore, the choice of cover deserves full attention. A well-functioning cover will greatly enhance pool enjoyment. Thanks to its very high quality, the cover has a long lifespan. This is achieved through additional UV protection, hail resistance and optimal profile geometry.
The different slats differ in colour but also in properties: insulation, heating and reducing algae growth. Which slat is the right one depends on a number of factors: location of the pool (inside or outside, sun or shade), desired functionalities (only insulation or also heating), budget and taste.
By covering the water surface, the heated pool water does not evaporate. The heat is retained in the pool. As the water evaporates, so do the chemicals. So with a cover, you not only save on heating costs but also on water and chemicals.
Solar slats heat the water as the sun through the transparent top heats the black underside. This can vary up to 10°C! A pool with automatic slatted cover saves about 50% energy costs and up to 80% with solar slats. Additional heating during the season is then normally unnecessary.
Algae growth is caused by the combination of sunlight and stagnant water. With a dark chamber in the hook connection, almost no algae form in the slats because light no longer reaches the standing water. By using these Premium slats, the cover stays clean much longer.
The price of a slatted cover naturally depends on the size of the pool. PVC white and grey slats insulate perfectly, Polycarbonate solar slats heat the water and Premium slats reduce algae growth. The choice of these additional options determines the total price. These options are clearly divided into three different price categories: Standard, Comfort and Premium.
