Heavy-duty Solar Blanket material harnesses the power of the sun to trap heat as it prisms through the raised air pockets in the Solar Blanket bubble cover material. Swimming Pool Solar Covers warm the pool water temperature by absorbing sunlight during the day (as much as 10-15 degrees!) and retaining the heat at night. These Solar Covers keep the heat put in by your gas pool heater, electric pool heater or roof mounted solar heater, saving hundreds of dollars per year in pool heating costs! Savings also come from a reduction in water evaporation and chemical evaporation in your swimming pool. Our solar blankets are laced with air bubbles that act as an insulating layer, shielding your pool from cold winds and nighttime cooling. In addition, they will allow more solar heat to reach the depths of your pool and heat it thoroughly. Available in Round, Oval and Rectangle sizes.
Swimming pool heat is lost via water evaporation; as much as 70 percent of heat loss from a pool is evaporative heat loss. Solar Blankets act as a barrier between the air and the water in your pool, preventing the loss of water and retaining heat already present in your pool. Solar Blankets also capture energy from the sun and use it to warm your pool water by up to 15 degrees and retaining that heat so you can always swim in warm, comfortable water.
Solar Blankets are an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way to heat your pool and do not require maintenance-all you need to do is put the cover on when your pool is not in use and reduce water and heat loss. Solar Blankets also reduce your pool maintenance times by preventing debris from falling into your pool, and help save you on chemical costs since you are not losing your chemically treated water. Solar Blankets also reduce your utility bills since you will run your heater or heat pump less frequently.
Solar Blankets are usually made of special materials such as UV-stabilized polyethylene, polypropylene or vinyl, and are available in various sizes and thicknesses. Thicker Solar Blankets capture and retain more heat than their thinner counterparts and are longer lasting. Choose the Solar Blanket that best meets your need and budget, and enjoy a warmer, cleaner pool all season long.
