A cover used regularly will prevent loss of water from your pool and by preventing this evaporation you will save time and money.  You will have to fill your pool up less often which means you conserve water.  It also reduces the amount of salt or chemicals needed to keep your water balanced.

It is amazing how much debris can end up in your pool water in such a short amount of time.  The debris can be from a nearby tree, blowing dirt or an insect that gets lured into your refreshing water.  Above ground swimming pool covers are probably utilized most for this reason.  When not in use, place the cover on your pool and when using again remove the cover and have a clean pool waiting for you.
