Irritating bugs can decrease your pool's value because of bites and stings in the evenings or early mornings when the bugs are active. Apart from bugs, an unprotected pool will attract the occasional small animal and drown it. If you live in a windy area, cleaning the pool becomes a constant chore because of windblown debris getting into the pool. Installing an outdoor screen enclosure helps get more value from your pool in several ways:
Improve Safety for Kids
An unprotected pool presents a grave hazard in a home with kids. Sadly, cases of children drowning in their homes' pools occur from time to time. If you have a pool, it is imperative to make it inaccessible to unattended children. An outdoor screen enclosure offers more value than a pool fence because it offers safety and makes it an enjoyable outdoor space.
Offer UV Protection During the Day
Basking in the sunshine after a dip in the pool feels good but can also harm because of exposure to harmful UV rays. They can cause sunburn and eye problems, and long-term exposure can trigger skin cancer.
Custom screen enclosures let you enjoy the sunshine without the dangers of UV rays. The screen filters out UV rays but still allows light and warmth to come in.
Keep Out Pets and Wildlife
Have you had the tragedy of a drowned pet in the pool? Unenclosed pools attract small animals, including pets, snakes, rodents, and birds. It can become a common occurrence if you live near a forested area.
Installing a screen enclosure around the pool makes a barrier to pets and other small animals. In addition, it keeps your pool clean and sanitary.
Less Cleaning Chores
An uncovered pool gets all kinds of windblown debris, like paper rubbish, leaves, dust, and clothes. So, your pool will be constantly dirty and in need of cleaning. You will also spend more cash chlorinating the pool.
An outdoor pool enclosure is useful in keeping windblown debris from landing in your pool. You will have less cleaning to do and also save money on chlorinating.
Extend Useful Outdoor Space
Installing a pool enclosure makes the area usable at any time of the day. You can swim during the day and spend time dining and bantering in the evenings. You don't have to worry about irritating bugs. It makes your pool a more valuable investment.
