Solid or Mesh Winter Pool Covers: Which is Best?


Solid or Mesh Winter Pool Covers: Which is Best?

Solid winter covers are nearly airtight and will prevent dirt, water, debris, and sunlight from entering the pool. Blocking the sunlight aids in preventing algae and other organisms from growing in the pool during the fall and winter months. A good solid winter pool cover ensures that your pool water will be as nice in the spring as it was in the fall.

A solid cover does require a cover pump to remove accumulated water and melted snow from the cover’s surface.

Both solid and mesh pool covers are different than solar covers in design and construction. You can easily narrow your search by pool type; above ground covers are very different from in-ground pool covers. Solid covers are more expensive than mesh covers as they are more durable and ensure clean pool water in the spring.

Mesh winter covers provide excellent winter protection and are perfect if you live in an area that receives heavy snowfall during the winter months. Mesh covers are porous so that melting snow, melting ice, and rain will drip through the cover into the pool, preventing puddles on the surface of the cover.

Above ground pool mesh covers also prevent debris and foreign objects from entering the pool water but will allow smaller particles of debris through. Those particles of debris can be easily cleaned out in the spring with a pool vacuum. Mesh covers are less expensive than solid covers and are lightweight so they are easier to install and remove.
