Save Energy with Swimming Pool Covers

You can significantly reduce swimming pool heating costs by using a pool cover. Swimming pools lose energy in a variety of ways, but evaporation is by far the largest source of energy loss. Evaporating water requires tremendous amounts of energy.

We use a pool cover to cover our aviary. In winter, it helps keep the birds warmer; in summer - cooler. Wrap it around the aviary, sunshine fills the "pockets" and gives warmth during the night.
