It is obvious that owning a pool comes with many responsibilities. I remember as a child I would do everything in my power to plead with my parents for a puppy promising them until I was blue in the face that I would love him, feed him, water him, take him outside, you know the drill. Realistically, we all know that wasn’t quite the case. The same can go for pools. Often when we either purchase, inherit or refurbish a pool we promise ourselves that we will do all we can do maintain and care for our new “pet” but we nearly always seem to fall short. One huge item that is overlooked by many pool owners is the need for a pool cover.
