Secure the swimming pool in your property with the help of Alan Bettin Swimming Pools Ltd. We offer our range of services to customers across Farnham and the surrounding areas.

With options to suit almost every swimming pool, a safety cover can be installed with a new pool construction, as well as being retro-fitted to an existing pool. Please ask us to look at your pool and advise on what you can do to improve the safety of your pool and the quality of your pool water. All outdoor pools in the UK need some type of cover to retain heat and prevent evaporation and loss of chemicals. Standard floating covers provide part of these requirements but that is all.


They come in a range of options and prices, from a basic manual safety cover that is pulled over the pool with a cord, to a fully automatic key operated system installed below the pool surround. The fully automated option is the ultimate in pool covers, providing an all year round solution to your pool cover needs. An automated cover provides not only the most important facility of safety for your children and pets, but also a simple and easy method of opening and closing the pool, all year round.

The safety covers are made from a reinforced PVC sheet that is opaque and so when the pool is covered, all light is shut out preventing algae growth. When closed, the automated covers prevent rainwater and debris from entering the pool and so the pool stays cleaner and the water quality better. A safety cover is one way to create a more environmentally-friendly swimming pool, chemical usage and heating is reduced, saving money.

How much should a pool cover cost?

The cost of a pool cover depends on the size of the pool, the product that you opt for and whether or not it’s automated.

Should a swimming pool be covered?

Swimming pools should be covered when they are not in use, doing so prevents evaporation, helps retain heat, keeps out debris, cuts down on maintenance, saves money and can also help with pool safety.

Should you cover your pool every night?

You should cover your pool every night to reduce heat loss and also prevent debris or dirt getting into your water, which could lead to more frequent maintenance or cleaning being required.

Which is better - mesh or solid pool cover?

Mesh pool covers are better for providing protection winter protection, especially in areas that receive heavy snowfall. Solid pool covers are more expensive, but offer better durability and can keep the pool water cleaner during the spring.

What is the safest pool cover?

The safest pool cover to install is an automatic pool cover that features a solid fabric material. The cover is fastened to metal tracks on either side of the pool, as the cover is drawn across the pool it forms an isolation barrier that prevents accidental entry into the pool from every side.

Are pool safety covers worth it?

Pool safety covers are worth it, as investing in one can reduce the need for costly maintenance, help prevent evaporation and contain heat loss (thereby reducing heating costs in the long term).

Should my pool cover touch water?

Your solid pool cover should touch the water at all times, as this gives the cover the stability it needs throughout the winter, if rainwater or snow collects on its surface. A safety pool cover should be kept above the water level, as contact with the water can lead to wet spots forming on the cover, which can attract leaves or twigs that discolour your water over time.

What is the best colour for a pool cover?

The best colour for your pool cover depends on your conditions. Transparent colour pool covers are best for allowing the sun’s rays to heat the water of your pool, whereas opaque covers are best for controlling biological growth and retaining heat withing pool.

Should you cover your pool when it rains?

You should cover your pool when it rains, or simply when you aren’t using it. Doing so protects the pH levels of the water from being dramatically changed and will require you to make fewer chemical alterations as a result.
