There are two main types of swimming pool enclosures. There are enclosures that are meant to keep people out of the swimming pool area, like a fence. The other type is an actual enclosure that goes around the pool that can be completely closed to shade the area or made of a mesh to protect the pool, yet allow in the weather. A swimming pool enclosure can make a pool safer, cleaner and more enjoyable.
If you are looking into getting a swimming pool enclosure then you should learn a little about the different types so you can make the right choice.
A complete swimming pool enclosure can be made from a thick plastic material or can be an actual building built around the pool. A complete enclosure provides shade for the pool, keeps out leaves and other outdoor debris and also keeps the pool protected in harsh weather. Some complete enclosures even allow for the pool to be used in any weather. Complete room enclosures can be heated and maintained so the pool can be used even in the winter months.
Complete enclosures also add to the safety of the pool as they can be locked to prevent accidents with children falling into the pool. This type of enclosure is good for someone who wants to extend the use of their pool and cut down on maintenance costs.
A screen enclosure is basically a framed screen that goes over the pool. It does not provide shade, but will keep outdoor debris out of the pool. It does not offer protection from the weather in the winter months and should actually be stored when the pool is not in use for the winter.
If left up the screen could tear under pressure from snow and ice. This type of swimming pool enclosure is good for someone looking to cut down on maintenance or for a pool area where bugs are a nuisance.
Swimming pool enclosures are a nice accessory for a swimming pool. They can really make swimming more enjoyable. The complete enclosures also help to extend the pools use and can help keep the area safer by preventing accidental falls in the pool.
Screen enclosures are an affordable option that helps cut down on maintenance and pest nuisances. No matter the choice of swimming pool enclosure you are sure to find it really adds to the whole experience you have with your pool.
