Products That Go Over The Top To Extend The Pool Season Providing all year round swimming, regardless of the unpredictable UK weather, a swimming pool enclosure reduces both maintenance and running costs for both commercial and domestic pool owners plus it builds in safety too. There’s no doubt that having an enclosure is an investment, but having one means owners can maximise the full potential of their swimming pool.

chill is in the air and leaves are falling and this can mean only one thing for many owners of outdoor swimming pools. Regrettably, it’s time to prepare to close down what has been a focal point for fun during the summer – the swimming pool. Of course, there is a way of extending the fun times and many pool companies will no doubt be pointing out the many advantages of adding a pool enclosure, and these great add-ons come in a whole spectrum of shapes, sizes and price points. They are extremely versatile and can be fully fixed to the floor or wall and be telescopic, allowing a completely open air pool when weather permits or be neatly closed up protecting swimmers from the elements when necessary.
