More and more people are using marquees for storage, garage replacements and swimming pool covers. As we are moving closer to the summer season I thought it would be a good time to share the best ways to cover a swimming pool. All of our marquee ranges would be suitable for covering a swimming pool but your requirements will determine which one you should purchase.
We have previously written an article on Swimming pool cover where we shared ways you can secure your marquee and popular sizes people purchased to cover a swimming pool. At the bottom of the blog we have a contact form open for customers to give us suggestions for our next subject matter to write about. Nick from Leeds wanted us to explain the differences between our marquee ranges (PE, Economy, Premium and Professional) Below we have not only explained more about our marquee ranges but more importantly you should be able to work out which range is suitable for your requirements.
Marquee Cover Options
- PE Marquee – This is the perfect option if you are looking for short term cover. If you are hosting a swimming pool party and you only need a marquee up for a few days the polyethylene party tents are suitable for regular short term use.
- Economy PVC – This marquee range has 500gsm PVC tarpaulin which is a lot thicker than the PE range. This will help combat bad weather and keep the space warmer. The Economy marquees are perfect for longer term use and is often used by companies performing swimming pool maintenance.
- Premium PVC – Like the economy range the premium marquees have 500gsm PVC. Premium party tents have three extra features that make it more equipped to be used for a longer term, these are: Fire resistance, ground bar and cross bars.
- Professional PVC – The best marquees UK Tents sell is the professional PVC range. With a thicker frame and 550gsm tarpaulin many of our customers use this range as a semi permanent structure. Please note – This will still require maintenance and in high winds should be dismantled.
Multiple Marquee Uses
UK Tents marquees are designed to be assembled easily and with that in mind a party tent can have many uses. A great example of this is in the picture below below. Our 3×6 premium marquee was previously used to cover a small swimming pool and then our customer transformed the marquee into this lovely wedding venue.
The professional and the premium ranges would be ideal if you are planning to use the marquee for different purposes. The PE and Economy party tents do not have the reinforcements needed to be used for regular long term use and if you need any advice on this please call us directly on 01234 233 234.
When purchasing a marquee for multiple uses you really need to take a two things into account: If you can stretch your budget for a better marquee range it would potentially save you money in the long run as it will stop you needing to buy more than one marquee. Using a PE Tent will protect guests from the sun as it has UV protection and could be the ideal solution if you are looking for short term cover for a budget. PE will also look great when dressed for a wedding which means it has the ability to be used for multiple purposes.

Buying a Marquee is Cheaper Than Hiring
If you compare the prices to hire a temporary structure to cover a swimming pool instead of buying one you would be surprised with the results. It would work our much cheaper to buy your own marquee as a marquee hire business would need to pay for builders to erect it, pay for builders to dismantle it and then of course pay to store the marquee. Our next blog will be dedicated to explaining the benefits in owning your marquee rather than buying one.
