How to Maintain a Swimming Pool Cover

No matter how much you love your pool, chances are you won’t be using it for 365 days of the year. Unfortunately, when pools aren’t in use, all kinds of dirt, debris, and even animals can end up getting stuck in the water.

That’s why one of your swimming pool essentials should be a swimming pool cover. Still, your cover can’t do all the work for you. That’s why we’ve made this handy guide to pool cover care.

Basic Pool Cover Care

Here, we’re going to explain the basics on how to best look after your pool cover to keep it in tip-top working condition.

Remove Water

As a pool cover is designed to protect your pool from the elements, unfortunately, it means at some point, it will accumulate water build-up. To help preserve your pool cover, be sure to remove this water as it builds up by using a pool pump.

Remove Debris

Anything you wanted to keep out of your pool is inevitably going to end up sitting atop your swimming pool cover. To clear away dirt and debris, use a soft-bristled broom or a specific pool cleaning brush to clear these away as and when they begin to build up.
