Pool Covers

Energy Saving, Heat Retention Pool Cover Systems

A pool without a pool cover is like a house without a roof!

Over 90% of a pool’s heat is lost through the water surface. Reduce heat loss and minimise condensation - save on running costs, chemical costs and protect the fabric of your pool room – by fitting a pool cover system.

No matter if you have a domestic pool or whether you operate a public pool, leisure complex, school or university pool, Aquality Leisure challenge you to find a better way of making financial savings or improving your carbon footprint, than installing a swimming pool cover.

You can be sure the savings will be huge, and for 95% of our installations the payback period is less than one year. This includes the complete cost or the roller, cover and installation.

Every pool is different, heat savings will depend on both the pool and pool hall building construction, the amount and type of glass, the level of ground water and the type of air handling equipment. Aquality Leisure specialists work on a general rule of thumb as to what savings will be, by the limited information provided. Aquality Leisure specialists estimate that in average conditions with the air handling in setback mode you will save £0.025 per m² per hour, it doesn't sound much, but see how it adds up.

The likely savings if your pool is covered 8 hours per day. Here are some examples.

Pool size 25m x 7.5m = 187.5m² x £0.025 = £4.69 per hr. x 8 = £37.52 per day x 365 = £13,694.00 per year, or over 5 years £68,470.00,
Pool size 25m x 12m = 300² x £0.025 = £7.50per hr. x 8 = £60.00per day x 365 = £21,900.00 per year, or over 5 years £109,500.00

In both the cases above, unless there are very exceptional circumstances, we can cover the pool with a safe D.C. motor, with fully automatic stop/start high level roller system for less than one year's savings!
