Every year pool are squandering billions of gallons of water that can be conserved. This paper addresses the issues with the existing usage of full swimming pool covers and how half covers are the solution to pool water preservation.
It is popular that pool covers can reduce water evaporation by up to 95%, yet less than 30% of pools are utilizing covers. The present restrictions enforced by full covers for one of the most part come down to 2 problems.
The Twofold Problem
First, complete covers are difficult to stock. Complete covers are large and need to be equipped in 50 or more sizes needing a substantial amount of flooring area to have covers on hand for the myriad of pool sizes. If a size heads out of stock, the consumer needs to wait till the warehouse reorders another truckload of covers. This circulation and equipping problem badly restricts the readily available stock on hand at any one time and avoids the consumer from being able to buy as needed.
Second, complete covers for one of the most part fit just rectangular shaped swimming pools. Covers initially come off the assembly line as sheets in rectangle-shaped shapes and are heat seamed together for numerous widths. They can be more cut into oval or round sizes, however nevertheless most of the pools built today are irregular free-form shapes and custom designs. In order to accommodate free-form swimming pool shapes the customer sometimes need to oversize the cover which indicates purchasing an even larger than needed cover and cookie-cutting the cover to the free-form pool using the within the swimming pool cove as a guide. This nevertheless can create a great deal of waste. And how do you accommodate state an L-shape swimming pool?
The twofold option is that using half covers, the number of cover sizes for circulation and equipping can be reduced from over 50 to just 4 half cover sizes (see listed below) which can be mixed-n-matched to work with practically all swimming pools as much as L-shapes resolving both of the abovementioned concerns.
Motivating the market to disperse half covers enables more people that ever to cover their pools. This useful way of using half covers reinvents the way covers are stocked and dispersed, never sustaining oversize shipping charges, and permits dealerships to have covers in stock so swimming pool owners never go home empty handed. By fixing the issues avoiding all pools to use covers, in the wake of water scarcities that are only becoming worse, it becomes a required to encourage all swimming pools to be covered.
The Added Problem with Handling Complete Covers
Another overwhelming restriction to complete cover use is that traditionally the only device sold for handling these covers has actually been the deck reel, an expensive large towel rack like device that sits at the end of the pool consuming important deck area. The issue with deck reels is that even if you cookie-cut your over-sized cover to fit your free-form swimming pool, deck reels do not handle curvy free-form pool covers extremely well. Also if you have limited or no deck area where are you going to put your reel?
