Ways to Reduce

Invest in a Durable Pool Cover

Do some research on the type of pool cover you’re buying as well as the specific model. Try to find one that will last 10 or 20 years instead of one that will break down after only a couple of years.

Ways to Reuse

Repurpose as Wood Pile Cover

If your pool cover begins to wear out or tear, use the scraps to cover a wood pile.
