Pool Solar Cover

Regular pool covers keep rain and debris out of swimming pools and make pools easy to maintain. They also save water and reduce pool chemical consumption. Solar blankets can do all of these and also help heat your swimming pool.

A solar cover provides more insulation than regular swimming pool covers. The most common solar blankets look like large industrial bubble wraps. The air-filled bubbles on their surfaces not only prevent heat from escaping from the pool but also diffuse solar radiation over a wider surface area of the pool and serve as a buffer between the air and the water surface. Therefore, a solar blanket can significantly reduce your energy bill by lowering the cost of heating your pool and even eliminate the need for a solar pool heater. Three of the great products on the market are 16 Mil Ultra Clear Pool Solar Cover, 12 Mil Pool Solar Cover and Round Supreme Swimming Heater Blanket.
