4 Benefits Of Using Solar Pool Covers

There are different types of pool covers, with some offering safety and others offering other practical benefits. Solar Pool Covers are designed to help extend the swimming season while increasing water temperature, preventing evaporation, and helping save on your pool supplies. It will trap the warmth in the water stored during the day. The following guide explains the different ways in which this pool cover benefits you.

What is a Solar Pool Cover?

Solar covers are similar to bubble wraps in their look. Typically, Solar Pool Covers are made from polymer or resin, and the role of the bubbles is to capture the heat from the pool water. You can find them in a wide range of shapes and sizes so that you can always find a fitting cover for your pool.

If you have a rectangular pool, the cover’s reel will make it easy to put on and remove the cover daily. The reel can be attached to any side of the deck. You can unroll the cover and place them on the pool or they can be rolled up when you want to enter the water.

Benefits of Solar Pool Covers

There are so many benefits of using solar covers for your pool.

1. Increasing Water Temperature

The primary benefit of using Solar Pool Covers is that they help in heating up the water in your pool. They work by capturing heat from the sun by trapping heat within the bubbles. The heat is then transferred to the water. Typically, these pool covers can help in raising water temperatures by anything in the range 10°F to 15°F based on factors like:

  • Number of hours of sunlight and intensity
  • Color of the solar cover
  • Bubble shape of the solar cover

2. Saving on Energy Costs

A solar cover will help heat your pool without the need for spending anything for the energy. This also makes it an environment-friendly option. The alternative is to use heaters that will cost you in terms of electricity or gas. When you use solar power for heating your pool, it helps in saving the money spent on these non-renewable sources of energy. If you get ample amount of sunlight, you may not have to use any other alternative but the Solar Pool Covers.

3. Save Water

A solar cover helps in reducing evaporation, thus minimizing the amount of water lost from the pool. Thus, you will not have to replace as much water, which means you save more water. According to studies, using pool covers can help in reducing the amount of make-up water required by as much as 50% during the swimming season.

4. Save More Chemicals

Loss of water due to evaporation also reduces pool chemicals. So you will have to constantly replace the chemicals along with water to ensure the perfect balance. But the use of Solar Pool Covers can not just help reduce water evaporation, it can also help reduce loss of chemicals. Thus, you will be able to save more pool chemicals, and reduce costs.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
