Solar Pool Covers
Any kind of pool cover is obviously going to beneficial for keeping and trapping heat inside of your pool. However, solar pool covers are especially beneficial because they save energy and can reduce heat loss through by evaporation by almost ninety percent. They are especially useful when used at the same time as a solar pool heater, as solar pool heaters become much more efficient
- 70% to 100% more, in fact. The same is true if you heat your pool conventionally. A solar pool cover will make a heat pump or gas heater twice as efficient as they would be if left uncovered.
A solar pool cover absorbs the heat from the sun and then transfers to your pool. It features thousands of tiny air bubbles that act as a transmitter of the solar energy into the pool. Much like bubble-wrap, this technology is surprisingly cost-effective and efficient.
A solar pool cover will not only keep your pool warm, it also keeps it free of debris, sand, leaves and bugs. They also come in a variety of normal pool shapes
- rectangles, and circles, and you may also get them custom cut to fit your pool if it's free form. In order to properly set up your pool cover, and prevent it from moving, you are best off also purchasing a cover reel so that it can be rolled in and out with ease.
