IF YOU HAVE A SWIMMING POOL – YOU NEED A POOL COVER. AND THE AUTOMATIC COVER MARKET WITH A LARGE RANGE OF PRODUCTS OFFERING CRUCIAL HEAT RETENTION HAVE CHANGED THE WAY CUSTOMERS NOW LOOK AT COVERS. SAFETY ISSUES ARE IMPORTANT BUT IT’S ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES AND COST SAVINGS WHICH ARE THE KEY ISSUES FOR SALES

A

utomatic pool covers, from safety to slatted, are one of the constants of the specialist trade. The fact they grow in popularity throughout economic downturns and dire weather conditions would indicate consumers are seeing the initial spend as a sound investment with great returns.

So while recent years have seen slumps in the number of new pools built, the market for covers remains unscathed.

Whether it’s for safety, convenience, energy savings or aesthetics – or a combination of all four – the fact is automatic pool covers in particular are proving more popular to consumers every year. One thing helping drive the growth in pool covers in 2010 is a renewed focus on safety.

The effects of natural wear and tear on covers also helps keep business brisk. While safety concerns are important to consumers, so is saving energy in today’s greener political and social climate. Less water evaporates from a pool with a cover, especially an automatic one that can be easily unfurled. A pool with a cover is also easier to keep chemically balanced and warm.

A common complaint of builders used to be that the demand to incorporate a pool cover in the design limited their creativity. But a few manufacturers make automatic covers that can accommodate almost any shape – even vanishing-edge pools – which makes it easier to sell to the consumer.
