Tarp: A Pool Cover Option for New Jersey Winters

Is Tarp a good pool cover option for the winter in New Jersey?

Discover whether using a tarp as a winter cover for your pool is an ideal option for New Jersey pool owners. Explore why SR Pools LLC offers superior solutions that go beyond traditional tarps.


As winter approaches, many New Jersey pool owners face the dilemma of finding suitable covers to protect their pools during the colder months. With numerous options available, it’s essential to weigh each choice carefully and consider factors such as durability, effectiveness, and ease of use. In this blog post, we will explore whether using a tarp as a winter cover is truly beneficial or if there are better alternatives offered by SR Pools LLC. 


Is Tarp an Effective Winter Cover?

While tarps are commonly used due to their affordability and availability, they might not offer adequate protection against freezing temperatures or heavy snowfall. Tarps tend to sag under weighty loads, allowing debris and water accumulation that could damage your pool structure over time.

Moreover, tarps lack proper insulation properties required during extreme cold spells common in New Jersey winters. This deficiency increases heat loss from your swimming pool water resulting in higher energy costs when reheating after removing the cover.
