How to Choose the Right Swimming Pool Cover
Pool Covers serve as a protective shield over your pool water throughout different seasons each year. There are three main types of Pool Covers: Winter Covers, Safety Covers and Solar Covers. Each type of cover provides its own benefits to your swimming pool.
The Perfect Winter Cover for Every Pool
The perfect winter pool cover for your above ground swimming pool or inground swimming pool is one that will fit perfectly, deliver the performance and durability you expect and meet your purchase price requirements. With five (5) grades of winter pool covers, we like to say that we have a winter pool cover for every wallet! In The Swim winter covers are strong and sturdy; our tight weave and thick laminates stand up to heavy snow, sharp sticks and wildlife better than others.

Stock Safety Covers
Stock pool safety covers are available for immediate shipment - they are in stock! We carry Rectangle pool sizes as well as Rectangle with Center End Step, Rectangle with Left Side Step and Rectangle with Right Side Step pool shape options. Safety covers for Rectangular Pools can be selected on the top of this page, just measure your pool's length and width, from inside edge to inside edge. Stock safety covers have a 15" overlap to accommodate a 3" variance in pool size, and will accommodate up to a 4' radius corner. Pools that are not rectangular in shape should not use a stock cover, as it will wear unevenly on the pool coping edge and voids the warranty. For non-rectangle inground pool shapes, see our Custom Safety Covers page.

Custom Safety Covers
Custom safety covers are made to follow the exact contours of your inground pool shape to ensure that the cover meets warranty and ASTM standards as a safety pool cover. Custom safety covers cost more than stock safety covers because they are engineered, cut and sewn to fit your pool, and only your pool. Ordering a custom cover is simple - just measure the pool with a long measuring tape, and a Safety Cover Measuring Form. A-B pool measurements allow a CAD system to triangulate the exact shape of your pool for a perfect fit. After measurements are received, your safety pool cover ships complete fast, ready to be installed. Get your free online Safety Cover Quick Estimate today!
Benefits of a Solar Cover
Solar Pool Covers
A solar cover saves you money and extends your swimming season. By absorbing and trapping the energy of the sun, a solar cover can heat your pool’s water by up to 15 degrees without using a gas heater or propane pool heater, thus saving you on heating costs by 50%-70%. This is the same on in-ground pools and above ground pools.
A solar cover also holds the sun’s heat in the water when the nights start to get chillier as the summer season wanes. By keeping the pool water warm, for free, you’re extending the fun you can have in the pool for the season. It also works in spring, when the days and nights start to get mild, but aren’t too warm, the solar cover can kick start the heating process and get you in the pool early.
Solar Cover Reels
Solar cover reels help make the task of taking on and off the solar cover much easier. Simply rolling it up neatly and out of the way takes mere minutes, a good solar reel will protect your solar cover for years of use. There are several choices to pick from for both in-ground and above-ground pools. Most in-ground solar cover reels are designed to fit under diving boards and is portable making the easy to store away. You can also get a powered solar cover reel that has a motor that plugs into a standard outlet for your in-ground pool. As for above-ground pools, some styles like the AquaSplash above-ground solar cover reel and the economy above-ground solar cover reel attaches to your pool’s rail and pivots out of the way for swimmers. There’s also our Solar Saddle solar cover holder which is a less-expensive option where you manually roll your solar cover off the pool’s surface and tuck it into the attached holders around your pool.
Important Winter Pool Cover Supplies
Take stock now of supplies to secure the cover to the pool, and a cover pump to remove rain water and melted snow. A leaf rake makes an excellent leaf dredging tool, if you don't use a leaf cover. There are other important pool cover accessories, depending on pool type.
