  • provides swimming pool safety for children and animals,
  • protects your pool from dirt and debris, reducing swimming pool maintenance costs
  • reducing heating costs by keeping the water temperature 10 – 12 °C higher.
  • no swimming pool ventilation problems as doors can be opened or the whole cover moved aside.
