Solar Covers And Reels
Solar blankets or solar covers can add up to 15° F when placed over a sunny pool, but more importantly – they stop pool water evaporation and heat loss – by up to 95%! Prevent pool evaporation and wasteful heat loss with a floating solar blanket, solar rings, solar squares or liquid solar blanket. Large solar covers are much more manageable when used with a solar reel, available for inground and aboveground pools, in all sizes.
Swimming pools that are covered when not in use return many advantages. Solar covers not only capture heat from the sun, but also retain heat overnight and during cloudy days. Furthermore, solar blankets can reduce evaporative water loss by up to 95%, so important in drought stricken areas. And although not a safety cover, solar covers can discourage unauthorized pool use, and they also assist in keeping your pool clean. Solar covers are made from LDPE #4 plastic, and can be recycled when they reach the end of their useful life.
Use a solar cover reel for one person removal and replacement, and to safely store the solar cover when it’s not being used. If that’s too much trouble, consider solar rings or solar squares, which connect to each other with magnets, and are easily removed and stacked in a shady poolside area. If that’s too much trouble, give liquid solar blanket a try. Added to the pool, it produces an invisible and micro-thin monolayer on the water surface, to reduce heat loss.
