Owning a pool in Florida is a great way to beat the heat. With warm weather all year long, many homeowners elect to have an in-ground pool built in the backyard. Numerous homes typically have what's referred to as a "birdcage" style screening covering the square footage of the outdoor pool area. The style "birdcage" is referring to large beams with screening in between that resemble that of an oversized birdcage, just for humans in their leisure time. But does a pool really need to get that sort of outdoor covering? Explore the benefits that come from a birdcage pool enclosure here and decide for yourself!
- Less bugs! Skimming the pool continually is going to get real old, real quick. With the screen enclosure, this limits the amounts of fallen leaves or strange bugs (or other critters) that may end up in the water.
- Filter out that sunburn! Now it's not recommended to ever spend too long outside without some SPF sunscreen on, but with the screen filtering, some of the harmful UV rays there shouldn't be any extra worry.
- Hurricane ready birdcages. The birdcage enclosure can take a beating typically, especially if newly installed. The screens may come loose or tear due to debris in a rough storm, but the beams will stay secure. This also goes back to keeping the pool as free from debris as possible.
- No hot pools! As well as filter the UV rays, the screens act as a buffer from the heat as well. It may make the pool a few degrees cooler than usual, but a pool heater can always be installed and used to regulate the temperature.
- An enclosed pool is a happy pool! Keep the pool area and anything that might be kept in a patio area safe outside under the protection of the birdcage instead of out in the open or crammed into a room at the end of the day.
Installing a birdcage pool enclosure is not something that absolutely needs to be done, but from the points brought up here, it would be a smart addition to any home with a pool. Keep the family cooled off and chilled out this summer under a protective, reliable enclosure.
