WHAT IS A SOLAR BLANKET

What is Solar Blanket

Solar Blanket, also known as a Solar Cover, is a large sheet of plastic that looks like air bubble wrap. Swimming Pool top is covered with the solar blanket which is available in different colours, thickness and sizes. Solar covers are designed both for Above-ground and In-ground pools and the main purpose of a solar blanket is to retain heat and preventing heat loss. Solar cover also helps to increase the water temperature to 10-15 degrees with daily sun.

HOW IT WORKS

How Solar Blanket Works

The major reason of the swimming pool heat loss (around 75%) is evaporation which can be controlled by using a Solar Blanket. Solar Blanket acts as a physical barrier between swimming pool water and the air and helps to reduce heating costs up to 70%. Actually with a regular sun, air inside the bubbles gets warmed and transfer heat to the pool water. In other words, swimming pool solar cover acts as a magnifying glass to amplify the sun’s warming effect. Make sure that bubbles should face down into the water when you spread solar cover on your pool.
