Think about how much investment you made when you got your private swimming pool installed in the comfort of your back garden. Getting your swimming pool is no doubt a luxury, and probably you will want to make this investment the best value for money that you can. And luckily, this is a lot easier than you may think.
Getting pool enclosures for your swimming pool area means that you are more likely to use your swimming pool all year round. It not only turns your outdoor pool into an indoor pool but also helps you save a lot of money. How?
Having an enclosure in place means you have to clean your pool less because this covering over your bath pool will stop leaves, flies, and other debris from falling into the pool. This means you need to spend less time and money cleaning out the pool and start spending more time in your pool. Also, by covering your pool area, you are reducing the amount of evaporation, which means your cost of chemicals is reduced as your pool’s water levels remain more even and chemicals maintain a better balance.
Over that, getting an enclosure can increase the value of your property; it adds elegance, comfort, and attraction to every building. However, deciding which one would be the best is not an obvious decision; here are some fundamental things to consider.
Ease of use
There are two types of enclosures– tracked and trackless. While both enclosures are relatively effortless to operate, the tracked enclosure has the edge regarding how easy they are to use. The tracked systems require only one person to open and close them, whereas the trackless enclosures ideally require two people as it can get disordered when being pushed from one side only.
Performance and flexibility
In terms of performance, both types of enclosures are equivalent. They both offer excellent insulation properties due to their low-profile nature. This design feature also helps ease of use and product maintenance. Moreover, there is no clear winner as they offer different aspects of flexibility. While trackless enclosures are easy to move away from the pool, tracked ones have the facility of just partially opening the chamber because they stay attached to their track.
Like several other aspects in and around your house, regular maintenance is the key to the longevity and integrity of any pool enclosure. Proper inspection of screens, fasteners, and other parts of the enclosure help prevent costly repairs and malfunctions in the future. However, maintenance requirements won’t stop you from investing in a modern design enclosure for your swimming pool; that said, they reduce costs of pool maintenance.
Variety of enclosures
Enclosures for the pool are available in various sizes, shapes, and materials. Therefore, before you splurge at buying one for your pool, determine which type of enclosure would be best for your home. Determine whether you need a section that makes up another room in your house or just looking to create a space where you can enjoy the outdoors. It would be better to talk to an enclosure expert to understand which type of enclosure would be best for your area.
Design and construction
Both tracked, and trackless pool enclosures are of robust construction. However, the tracked enclosure only needs a lighter framework because the tracks are part of the overall construction. The modules are fixed to the tracks providing additional robustness and resilience to strong winds. On the other hand, the trackless enclosures require a more sturdy framework to give rigidity and robustness against adverse weather conditions. However, in both cases, the enclosures can be locked down when not in use to provide additional security and protection.
