The Pros & Cons of a Pool Enclosure
Do you love the idea of having your own pool but don’t want to deal with the hassle and mess of upkeep? A pool enclosure may be perfect for you. Whether it’s an in-ground or above-ground pool, enclosing it will give you peace of mind, knowing you’re protected from outside dangers.
Pool enclosures are also great because they can be aesthetically pleasing and have a cooling effect on hot days. However, there are some things to consider when deciding whether or not to get one installed.
In this post, we will break down the pros and cons of installing a pool enclosure in your home.
(PRO) Protection From Pests
Pool enclosures protect from mosquitoes, snakes, gnats, and other pests to provide an inviting outdoor experience for you and your family. In Louisiana specifically, many homeowners have a pool enclosure built for this benefit alone.
(PRO) Aesthetic Appeal
Some homeowners may see a pool enclosure as an opportunity to increase the aesthetic appeal of their home. Above-ground and in-ground pool enclosures come in various styles to give your backyard a look you want.
(PRO) Easier Maintenance
Having a pool enclosure will make maintaining your pool much easier. You won’t have to worry about leaves and other debris from trees or bushes getting in the water.
Less time maintaining the pool means more time with your family, more time in the pool, and less money on maintenance.
An added benefit of having a pool enclosure is the increased privacy you will have. No one enjoys being outside and seeing eyes on them, but a pool enclosure can offer a sense of coziness and seclusion from your neighbors.
(PRO) Sunlight Protection
Pool enclosures that are fully covered will provide you with the protection you need while still allowing you to take pleasure in swimming. They also provide shade to prevent damage from the sun’s harmful rays.
(CONS) Pool Water is Cooler
While pool enclosures can be a great idea on hot days, you will find that the water in your pool is a bit cooler. In many cases, homeowners will pair a pool enclosure with a pool heater.
(CONS) Less Landscaping Space
If you want your pool enclosure to be fully enclosed, you will lose out on some of the landscaping space around it, which may not be ideal for some.
