Cons of Swimming Pool Enclosures.
Limited Landscaping Options:

Chilly Pool Water:
Your pool water can become chilly. The limited exposure to the sun doesn’t allow for the use of solar pool covers, which are energy efficient and cost effective. However, there are other heating options like gas and heat pumps.
Installing a pool enclosure adds an extra expense as a pool owner. This is something to take into consideration when deciding whether or not this is the right option for you.
