How to choose a Swimming Pool Enclosure ?
Making a good choice regarding a pool enclosure is not easy. It is a considerable investment and there are numerous models! The way you want to use your pool will be decisive in your choice. Let’s give you some tips to help you see it more clearly.
Why a Swimming Pool Enclosure ?
Safety around the pool area is very important, especially if you have children. Protecting your pool with a enclosure will give you more security. In fact, depending on the model (low, medium-high, high), you can cover or lock the doors of the pool enclosure.
In fact, the pool enclosure allows you to prolong the bath period, either by maintaining the water temperature or by heating it (+6/8° in average). In addition, the enclosure keeps your water clean throughout the year, and protects it from bad weather, pollution and leaves or insects. The cost of water maintenance will be reduced and you will be able to dive into your pool without first having to think about cleaning it!
In conclusion, the pool enclosure will not remove the charm of your pool and your garden; quite the opposite, it will add a touch more to your living space.
How do I choose a Swimming Pool Enclosure ?
With regard to the budget, the price range is very wide. It depends on the shape of your pool and the materials you want to use.
In fact, an atypical pool will require a custom enclosure, which involves a higher price!
Choosing your pool enclosure is a project that can save you a lot of money ! It is equally important to think about all the options that you may need or want and include them in the budget (motorisation, hatches and openings …). The pool enclosure will be different depending on the use you want to make of it.
- If you only want to keep the water at a good temperature for longer and protect it from bad weather and pollution, you would need to go for a low pool enclosure.
- Do you want a real space in which to live ? Then the high pool enclosure are made for you!
“It is important to pay attention to the quality of the product, take the time to compare and do not rush, you could encounter unpleasant surprises”
The temperature of the pool depends on 2 things:
- the height of the pool shelter plus the volume of air, which is important since you will need to heat it artificially!
- Thermal insulation, alveolar polycarbonate is like a double window, unlike other materials that are composed of “simple glaze” and will not keep the heat of your pool in a lasting way.
Practicality! The ease of handling is paramount; therefore, it is necessary to first think about the partial or total closure/opening of the pool enclosure. In fact, do you want it to be fully foldable?
You will need to opt for a telescopic low pool enclosure that you can fold over the ends of your pool and leave you a totally free bathing space. If you want to opt for a high telescopic enclosure and your pool is large, the weight of the pool enclosure could be important depending on the materials of the structure. Think about installing it motorised or changeable for the future.
Now you’re ready to make a good choice regarding your pool!
