Sun Protection for Pool Equipment: A Must in Arizona’s Heat

Living in Arizona means embracing the sun, but it also means taking precautions to protect your belongings, especially pool equipment. Here’s why covering your pool gear from the relentless Arizona sun is crucial.

The Sun’s Toll on Pool Equipment

Arizona’s intense heat and UV radiation can swiftly deteriorate pool equipment. From pumps to filters and even pool toys, prolonged exposure can lead to fading, warping, and reduced functionality.

Preserving Value and Performance

By shielding your pool equipment from the sun, you not only maintain its appearance but also extend its lifespan and performance. Investing in covers or storing equipment in shaded areas ensures they remain in optimal condition for years.

Practical Solutions

  1. Use Pool Equipment Covers: Invest in covers designed for pool pumps, filters, and other gear. These covers protect against UV damage and keep equipment functioning smoothly.
  2. Seek Shaded Storage: Store pool toys, floats, and other gear in shaded areas or bins when not in use. This prevents sun damage and prolongs their usability.
  3. Regular Inspections: Routinely inspect pool equipment for signs of sun damage. Addressing issues promptly can prevent further deterioration and costly repairs.


In Arizona’s scorching heat, protecting your pool equipment from the sun is essential for longevity and performance. By using covers, seeking shaded storage, and conducting regular inspections, you can ensure your pool gear stays in top condition, allowing you to fully enjoy those sunny Arizona days by the pool.
