cairo custom below deck reels for concealed pool covers

There are many smart reasons to cover a swimming pool. One of the main reasons is that a swimming pool cover will maintain and even increase the water temperature. You’ll also save on water costs. It’s not just splashing that wastes water. Evaporation is a substantial contributor to water loss. A pool cover reduces the amount of UV light hitting the water. Pool chlorine is degraded when exposed to UV light, so a cover equals less money spent on chemicals.

There are many smart pool owners who know these facts  However, they don’t want to look at their pool cover reels or trip over them when they’re not being used. So, they install concealed pool covers under their decks: another very smart idea.

At BMH spa and pool covers, we sell smart, below-deck reels to suit.
