Pool Cage Yes or No?

Families often times go back and forth on whether to install a pool enclosure as their safety barrier option when building a backyard pool. Screen enclosures are very common in Florida due to pool safety requirements, and they also provide a great barrier to bugs and harsh sunlight. Here is a list providing you both the pros and cons to help make the decision a little easier.

The Pro’s

Security:
The best feature of a screened enclosure is that it provides security both from dirt (insects, dust, and debris like fallen leaves) and unwanted visitors (snakes, uninvited guests, birds and of course alligators!). This keeps bugs, insects, bees and all other tiny animals off your pool. And if you have an open backyard, screened enclosures are a big help in keeping unwanted guests out of your pool area.

Easier Maintenance:
Most people say that cleaning is a breeze if you have a pool enclosure installed. Your pool will be much cleaner overall due to it keeping out extra debris.

Get More Swim Time:
A pool heater and pool enclosure is a perfect combination that will extend your swim time. While pool heaters make you dive into the water even during cold days, having pool enclosures help protect you from rain and snow. Having a hot tub attached is also a great idea so you can just soak yourself anytime you prefer.

Sunlight Protection:
Florida, also known as the Sunshine State, never runs out of sunny days. Though most of us love to go sun bathing, for the health of your skin it is better to keep your direct sun exposure kept to a minimum. Screened pool enclosures will help you enjoy swimming without worrying about harsh UV rays.

Designed to Withstand Strong Winds

Though Florida is a Hurricane-prone state, pool enclosures are designed to withstand strong winds, up to 130 miles per hour! Hence, pool enclosures are not damaged easily.

The Con’s.

Landscaping limitations
When you have a screened pool enclosure installed, you won’t have quite as many landscaping options. The enclosure can cover a significant portion of your yard, taking away green areas.

Pool Water gets Colder
Because of limited sun exposure, the pool water can get a bit cooler in summer and winter months. If the temperature drops below your comfort level, pool heaters can be installed to extend your swim season.

These are just few of the most common reasons why Florida Pool owners install or do not install screened pool enclosures. SOURCE: ALL SEASONS POOL.
