Solar Pool Covers
Solar Pool Covers are the most economical way to heat your swimming pool. Our solar pool covers or solar blankets work by simply trapping the warmth of the sun's rays in your swimming pool. Made from a Polymer material, solar covers or solar blankets simply float on the water's surface and prevent the warmth in the water from escaping when the swimming pool is not in use. If used regularly, a solar cover alone can add as much as 15˚ F to the water's average temperature. For many this may be all the pool heater you need to extend your pool swimming season by weeks or even months. For those using a gas, propane or heat pump, a solar cover or solar blanket is a necessity for keeping heating costs to a minimum. Heating a swimming pool without the use of a solar cover can double the cost of operating your pool heater.
