Year-Round Comfort: Exploring the Benefits of a Pool Dome

Are you a pool owner who wants to get the most out of your outdoor life on the West Coast? Imagine a year-round swimming experience in which you are free to enjoy your pool regardless of the weather. That sounds like a dream, right?

Well, it’s time to meet the game-changer: a retractable pool dome by Albixon installed by Pacific Awnings. These state-of-the-art enclosures are crafted from durable, non-corrosive materials that can stand up to harsh weather conditions. 

As well as providing a layer of safety for your kids and pets, pool domes provide a barrier to extreme weather, UV, dirt and debris, which can substantially reduce cleaning and maintenance requirements.

Plus, you’ll love how these domes enhance energy efficiency and keep your pool warm. And the best part? You can enjoy them open or closed, whichever suits your preference!

Read on to discover why this investment might be just what you need to transform your outdoor space into an all-season paradise.

Customization Options

When it comes to personalizing your space, you’ll find Albixon’s retractable enclosures offer a broad range of design options:

  • Low enclosures offer a sleek, low-profile look without impeding your view.
  • Medium-high enclosures are a perfect blend of functionality and beauty and are the most popular pool domes.
  • High enclosures boast a large interior, enabling pool owners to remain under shelter while enjoying various activities within and around the water. 

6 Ways a Pool Enclosure Can Improve Your Outdoor Lifestyle

Imagine enjoying a dip in the pool any time of year without wrestling with covers or battling the elements. Let’s look at the 6 benefits of pool enclosures:

1. Extend Your Swimming Season

Victoria, BC, is known for its beautiful but occasionally unpredictable weather. Retractable pool enclosures provide the means to beat fickle Mother Nature and transform your swimming pool into a year-round haven. Here’s how:

  • Swim year-round: You can enjoy your pool earlier in the spring and later into the fall. The enclosure protects against cold winds and rain, creating a cozy microclimate that makes swimming possible when you’d typically have to wait for fair weather.
  • Temperature control: Pool water can remain chilly even on sunny days. The enclosure traps heat, turning your pool into a warm oasis so you can swim comfortably without waiting for the water to catch up with the air temperature.
  • Rainy days, no problem: Pacific Awnings’ enclosures are designed to be watertight. This means that even during a rain shower, you can enjoy your pool without getting wet. It’s like having a private pool and hot tub, no matter what’s happening outside.

2. Improved Safety for Kids and Pets

Imagine the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that our enclosures enhance safety for children and pets.

A pool dome acts as a barrier that prevents unauthorized access to your outdoor oasis, offering extra protection from accidental falls or curious explorations by little ones or furry friends. 

Children and dogs are naturally drawn to water, and accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. With a sturdy enclosure in place, you have peace of mind knowing that your pool is not accessible without your supervision.

All our pool enclosures come with secure locking mechanisms, so you can rest at ease knowing your loved ones are safe!

Also, because pool enclosures are considered an added safety benefit for your pool vs. a new product/addition, additional permits are generally not required. 

3. Easier Pool Maintenance

Maintaining a pristine and well-balanced pool can sometimes be challenging, given the unique weather that comes with changing seasons. 

Victoria’s climate can bring falling leaves, tree blossoms, insects and debris into your pool. An enclosure acts as a protective shield, keeping leaves and other debris out of the water and reducing pool cleaning frequency. 

This means more time to relax and enjoy your pool and less time skimming and cleaning.

4. pH Stability, UV and Weather Protection

Retractable pool enclosures play a vital role in maintaining your pool’s condition:

  • Less chemical usage: The water quality remains more stable, with fewer contaminants entering the pool. You’ll spend less on chemicals to maintain the correct pH levels and chlorine or other sanitizers. 
  • Lower water evaporation: The enclosure minimizes water evaporation, meaning you’ll need to top up your pool less frequently. This not only conserves water but also helps in maintaining the chemical balance. 
  • UV radiation defence: Victoria enjoys a lot of sunshine, but intense UV radiation can take its toll on pool surfaces, liners and equipment. Retractable pool enclosures protect against harmful UV rays, prolonging the life of your pool equipment and reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.
  • Weather Protection: Our enclosures are crafted from durable, non-corrosive materials that withstand extreme weather conditions and heavy snow loads. 

5. Energy Efficiency

Albixon pool domes act like a greenhouse, trapping solar heat and using it to warm up the pool water naturally throughout the day. This means you’re not burning through electricity or gas to keep your pool at a comfortable temperature.

Our enclosures also prevent heat loss, especially during chilly or cooler months. The dome effectively acts as an insulator, maintaining the warmth of your pool without the need for constant heating.

Also, by conserving water and reducing chemical treatments, you’ll save on energy and maintenance costs. You might have more time to relax by your pool instead of working on it!

6. Easy to Use

While the energy efficiency and other benefits of a pool dome are undoubtedly a plus, let’s not overlook another key advantage – their ease of use

Picture this: it’s a drizzly afternoon, and you’re ready to take a refreshing plunge but are worried about the chilly fall air. No worries! With your retractable pool enclosure, you can open the enclosure just enough to slip into the warm swimming cave, closing it behind you. 

Now you’re swimming in a cozy den while the beautiful West Coast rain patters on the enclosure above your head – how perfect!
