Buy A New Swimming Pool Cover

What’s the best way to protect your family, friends and pets while prolonging your swimming pool structure? With a winter swimming pool cover from North Shore Pool & Spa specially measured by a professional and manufactured to fit your specific pool shape and design.

There are two types of Winter Safety Covers:

Mesh Pool Covers

Mesh winter pool covers allow water to pass through, typically cost less and have a longer life span. There is no pump needed, and the covers weigh less, which makes it easier for one person to put the cover on and take it off. Depending on the manufacturer, there are different grades of mesh. Our sales associate can help you decide which option works best for your pool.

Solid Vinyl Pool Covers

Solid vinyl winter pool covers keep all debris out of your pool, and allow no sunlight to pass through. If you use a solid vinyl cover, you can expect low to no algae growth.

Swimming Pool Cover Repair

Not sure if your cover can be repaired? Our team of pool experts can help decide.

Holes smaller than 4” can typically be patched with a repair kit. Larger holes will need to be sent to the manufacturer for proper repair to ensure safety. However, if the seams or straps are damaged, the cover will likely need replacement. Covers with holes or damaged straps are no longer considered safety covers and can be a liability.
