Stupid covered pool enclosure question
I don't know pools. Please be patient. :)
I'm looking at purchasing a home with a pool. It's an old scuzzy pool and will need a lot of attention. But what it really would need before we could move in is a fence.
But in the interests of safety and energy efficiency (maybe?) and less UV radiation (maybe?) and less maintenance (maybe?) and fewer mosquito bites, how ridiculous is a conservatory-type structure over the pool? It doesn't get cold here, just chilly. It doesn't really get hot either, a few days a year over 90F. Weather, no. Earthquakes, yes. (Lexan OK!)
Does anybody do this? I'm thinking of the old screened patio rooms with the glass panels one adds in the winter. They don't seem too popular for pools and I'm sure there's a good reason. What is it?
