Enjoy your investment for more of the year by enclosing your pool in a greenhouse structure. This enclosure has a double roof cover and has been built on a short 2 foot wall to increase the sidewall height of the structure. There is an area of 4 feet on either side of the pool for walking. Ventilation is accomplished through door openings, or roll up sides are available.
Covering your pool gives you benefits other than extending your swimming season. It significantly reduces the amount of chlorine that is used during the season as well as the need to sweep your pool. Enjoy swimming without the mosquitoes! The typical package is sold with a double clear cover and a roll up side wall kit. The structure can be fastened directly to your deck or anchored beside the concrete. Consider placing the structure off center to create extra walking/lounging space along one side.
A covered pool reduces heating costs, chlorine use and sweeping time by 75%! Pool usage is increased dramatically as the swimming season is extended. A sauna or pool house can be added to the front of the building for additional benefits.
