7 Important Facts to Consider Before Buying a Retractable Pool Enclosure

DynaDome | What to consider before buying a retractable pool enclosure?

If you’re thinking of purchasing a retractable pool enclosure, you may well have some questions. Here are a few things to consider before you go ahead…


1. What is a retractable pool enclosure?

A retractable pool enclosure is an aluminum and polycarbonate (plastics) structure that covers a pool area, offering protection against UV, and reducing the normal cleaning, and maintenance requirements. The Enclosure turns an outdoor pool into an indoor pool when needed.

The Retractable Enclosure would allow you to use your pool all year round. Having a retractable pool enclosure is extremely beneficial for homeowners, condominiums, hotels, resorts, spas, restaurants, or other organizations having pools for commercial purposes, as well as nonprofit organizations.

2. Are pool enclosures worth it?

The short answer would be – it depends since everyone has an opinion on whether they want a pool for all-year use or just warm-weather use.

Having a retractable pool enclosure has a lot of benefits. Reducing pool maintenance costs is just one of them.

Closing the pool for the winter is not every pool owner’s favorite task. Then, in the spring, come all the tasks associated with re-opening the pool. Sometimes you might spend more time maintaining your pool than you spend enjoying it.

The retractable pool enclosure spares you all that as well as significantly decreasing the time for maintenance.
