Cost of Mesh Pool Net Covers
One of the most affordable types of pool accessories on the market are mesh pool nets that cover the tops of both in-ground and above-ground swimming pools. While these won't necessarily warm the water or stop it from freezing, they do prevent leaves and debris from falling into the water and blocking the filtration system. These leaf net covers generally don't need to be professionally installed, and they take just a few minutes to slip on and off as needed. Expect to pay anywhere from $40 to $200 for a mesh pool net cover.
Cost of Solar Warmth Pool Covers
Some pool covers are designed to heat the water of the pool, which makes it a viable swimming option for much of the year. These covers can be made for in-ground as well as above-ground pools, and they are often a thick blue insulated material. These covers can sometimes be professionally installed, but generally only if they are designed to roll up from one side of an above-ground pool. The low end of prices for these covers is $139, but professional installation and high-quality solar warmth may cost as much as $1,305.
Cost of Winter Pool Covers
A winter pool cover is designed to stay in place for several months at a time, and it secures the pool from leaves, debris or even falling snow. These covers can be inexpensive, but it all depends on quality. Expect to pay upwards of $59 for a winter pool cover.
Cost of Fun Pool Accessories
While pool covers are the most important accessory, other fun additions can improve the appeal and utility of the pool. For example, slides generally cost around $1,674 for purchase and professional installation, and diving boards are far less at an average of $384. There are a wide variety of other accessories you can add to a pool as well, like lighting, tile mosaics and so forth, which a swimming pool professional can help you choose and install as you outline preferences throughout the process.
