Why you need a quality 500 micron bubblewrap pool cover
As the Western Cape is facing a continued water crisis & water restrictions, we have to adhere to water restriction laws and how it’s limitations impact us and in particular owners of swimming pools. A buying frenzy sprung up among pool owners to cover their pool so as to not loose more water to evaporation.
The harsh reality of this is, if you are the owner of a swimming pool, you may not top it up with municipal water unless your pool is fitted with a pool cover. It is just a piece of plastic but it can be expensive depending on the size of your pool. Topping up of a pool will cost anywhere from 35 – 70 cents per litre.

It is crazy how often we get a phone call from people giving feedback that their pool covers they purchased elsewhere have disintegrated after 1 year. They probably bought the wrong product from the wrong fly by night company.
Make sure what you are buying is at least 500 micron and is also UV Stabilised (to combat prevention of UV degradation) and ensure it has the benefits you require. If you are after a more solid cover or a pool safety net, we can assist you in this regard also.
