What’s the best pool cover?
The best pool cover for you will depend on your individual situation. Every type of pool cover has its strengths, and the best pool cover for you will be based on what you’re trying to achieve. For example, if you’d like to heat your pool, a solar cover may be best suited to you. If you have an indoor pool with a heater and want to prevent heat loss, a thermal cover may suit you best.

Frequently asked Questions
How does a pool cover save water?
Did you know that the number one reason swimming pools lose their water is through evaporation? Evaporation happens when the surface of the pool is exposed to air and water. Water molecules rise from the top of the water, form a vapour, and escape into the atmosphere. Pool covers prevent evaporation by providing a protective barrier from the elements, reducing the rate of evaporation and saving you water and money.
How much water can I save from evaporation?
When used correctly pool covers can reduce evaporation by up to 97%, saving you up to 10,000 litres per month! That’s a lot of water saving for your pool and wallet!
Look for Climate Care Certified products with the Smart Approved WaterMark. Pool covers with this symbol are certified to stop the most water from evaporation.

How does a pool cover reduce chemical use?
Pool covers reduce the amount of UV light that comes into contact with your pool’s water. This is an important advantage as the chemical chlorine in the pool becomes degraded when exposed to UV light.
Pool covers can reduce your chemical use by up to 50% as you’re not constantly having to re-balance your pool’s water chemistry. For those considering a saltwater pool, this will mean that the chlorinator will use less energy.
Invest in a pool cover today to reduce the amount of chemicals you use.
How do pool covers reduce cleaning time?
Pool covers can stop leaves, debris, dust and ducks from getting in your pool, which reduces the amount of time you need to spend cleaning it! If leaves stay in your pool for too long, they can break down and fuel algae growth. Invest in a pool cover today to reduce the time you spend on pool maintenance.
How does a solar pool cover work?
These covers are made from plastic and designed to provide a physical barrier to evaporation. They also capture solar energy to heat your pool! Solar blankets come in different levels of durability and insulation, and it’s important to get one that stands up the Australia’s tough climate.
Your local Poolwerx can offer a range of solar pool covers to suit your needs.
How does a thermal cover work?
Thermal pool blankets insulate your pool, preventing heat loss and evaporation. They’re made from thick, waterproof foam, and while they don’t heat your pool up, they do have superior heat retention abilities! Like solar blankets, thermal blankets come in different levels of durability and insulation.
Your local Poolwerx can offer a range of thermal blankets to suit your needs.

How do pool covers reduce energy consumption?
You can reduce the amount of energy you use heating your pool with a pool cover! Pool covers insulate your pools’ water and prevent a significant amount of heat loss. This can reduce your pool heating costs by up to 50%!
If you have a salt water pool, you save energy as your chlorinator doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the water sanitised.
