The pool cover that’s so “Green” it’s FREE.

Because an automatic safety cover is so easy to use, your pool can always be covered when it’s not in use. That means you save big money on heating, electricity, water and pool chemicals. In fact, your cover can completely pay for itself in just a few years. You can save more money than the cover actually costs! That means you gain the benefits of a safer and cleaner pool — for FREE.

Then Why Build A Pool Without A Cover?

With A Cover
There is no better way to conserve important natural resources than an automatic safety pool cover. It’s like a roof for your pool that helps keep out the undesirable things like dirt, Passive Solar Heat From the cover helps raise water leaves and insects temperature 7-10 Degrees while keeping in the good things, like heat, pool chemicals and water. It’s the perfect “Green” solution for pool owners who care about the environment and want to save money on operating costs.

Like a house without a roof, a pool without a cover is impossible to heat cost effectively. Without a cover, pool owners must continually replace heat and chemicals lost to simple water evaporation. And because the water is exposed to the elements, pool filtration pumps use more electricity than is necessary. That wastes valuable resources needlessly, and can cost you a lot of money.

Pool Heating
Water evaporation is the single largest cause of heat loss from a swimming pool. For every gallon of water lost, over 10,000 BTU’s of heat from your pool is wasted. (see regional energy costs table on back)

Save Up To:


On Heating Costs

Because an automatic safety cover is so easy to use, your pool can be covered when it’s not in use. That will dramatically reduce water evaporation and heat loss by up to 70%.

Pool Chemicals
Proper pool chemical levels are essential to maintain healthy water, but they need to be replaced and balanced frequently in pools without a cover.

Save Up To:


On Pool Chemicals

The cover keeps pool chemicals from dissipating so quickly, and that helps keep them in balance longer. That means much less expense and effort in keeping the water ready for swimming.

Pool filtration is vitally important for a healthy pool. An open pool needs to be filtered about 8-10 hours a day because dirt, leaves and insects can accumulate in a pool in just a few hours.

Save Up To:


On Electricity

Because most of the dirt and debris that normally falls into a the pool is sealed out, filtration cycles can be limited to just a few hours a day saving you up to 50% on electricity.
8-10 Hours Filtration 3-4 Hours Filtration

In many parts of the country water conservation is a major issue for local governments, water companies and environmentalists. Concerned pool owners should do all they can to conserve this important resource.

Save Up To:

Like a lid on a jar, an automatic cover prevents most water evaporation. That makes it possible for you to do your part in conserving water in your community.
