Why put an enclosure over your swimming pool?

Apart from adding style to your garden, how can a retractable enclosure improve your life and help you get the best usage and value from your swimming pool? The list below details some of the biggest. To enquire about our range of enclosures, use the form at www.energiseleisure.co.uk/enclosures, email us on enquiries@energiseleisure.co.uk, or call on 0333 577 9692.

  • By protecting the pool from the weather you can extend your swimming season (from Spring to Autumn - potentially longer if you're brave or depending on your heating).

  • Get the most out of your pool by creating a pleasurable environment even on wet, cold, or windy days.

  • Make the most of the sunshine by opening your enclosure on hot days

  • Store your garden furniture in the enclosure in winter (you don´t need to move them for the winter).

  • Keep thermal comfort even on colder days (special design keeps the warn within the enclosure).

  • Save on heating costs by creating a bubble of warm air.

  • Reduced exposure to the environment also lowers maintenance requirements and reduces chemical usage.

  • Improved water clarity and comfort by limiting pollutants.

  • Minimise heat loss and water loss through the night by creating a lower temperature differential between the pool and the air.

  • Slide segments with ease.

  • Keep your family and pets safe with fully lockable doors.


  • The polycarbonate panels act like a greenhouse. Direct exposure to the sun or, on cloudy days, the effect of diffused rays warms the air around the swimming pool.

  • Additional heat gains into the water can be made when exposed to direct sunlight, reducing heat up times and bills.

  • Evaporation of water from the swimming pool leads to loss of heat. If the temperature difference between water and air is 3°C, a 32 m2 pool will lose 40 litres of water per day, and an 80 m2 pool will lose 100 litres per day. With an enclosure – by isolating the water surface from the external atmosphere and by decreasing the thermal gradient – evaporation of water is greatly reduced.

  • The combination of a bubble or a foam cover with an swimming pool enclosure is a highly successful way of reducing water heating costs.

  • Adaptable designs mean that if you get too warm inside but don't want to fully open your enclosure, you can just move the segments of the enclosure for increased ventilation.
