Quality, durability, and permanence of a specific commodity always come on top in everyone’s priority list. Who would not want to save money and energy? Surely, everybody wishes for things to last long. However, no matter how reliable a product is, everything will gradually be destroyed as time passes by. Good thing, there is always something that we can do to extend the life of our possessions. The same thing goes with our very own pool cover. We can enjoy the benefit of the pool cover for a long time only if we take good care of it. One thing we should do to maintain the pool cover’s exceptional condition, aside from removing it properly, is to clean it regularly. To help you out, here are some ideas on how you can clean your pool cover efficiently:
Depending on the type of pool cover you have, there are multiple ways on how you can clean them.
Mesh Pool Cover
This type of cover is easy to keep up, but you need to check it from time to time to see if there is a rip or tear that needs to be fixed immediately. Remove the molds with a push broom and rinse the cover with a garden hose to make sure no residues left.
Finally, let it dry under the sun to complete the clean-up.
Solid Pool Cover
You need an entirely flat surface to clean this type of cover, a large pool deck or a slope-driveway would be great. Pour a small amount of soap then start brushing from the edge to the center; this will ensure that every part is cleansed. Same goes with this type; a garden hose would be best to rinse the cover entirely.
Automatic Pool Cover
For this type of pool cover, you have to be very attentive to have it cleaned every three to six months. Why? Well, it will be inevitable for a cover to be exposed to water from your pool. Moreover, when this water dries out under the sun, it will create a chemical residue that will damage your cover instantly. Reel out your automatic pool cover; divide the body area into smaller division so you can wash it with ease. Use an extended or long-handled brush to remove the dirt, rinse it using a garden hose, and then leave it laid until every part is dry.
It is always a good idea to keep our pool cover in good shape like how we keep our pools tidy. Indeed, we take care of things that matter. With standard cleaning, you’ll be able to increase the lifespan of your pool cover; thus, you will be able to save the cost of buying a new pool cover at the earliest time. It is always up to you as to how long your pool cover would survive because the truth is, it isn’t just about quality, but most importantly, it is how we take good care of things to make it last as long as possible.
