Solar Covers

Let’s face it, the climate that we’re stuck with in the UK makes a Solar Cover a pretty indispensable bit of kit! As well as retaining the heat of swimming pool water, solar covers can also help to heat swimming pool water and so long as they’re well looked after can last up to 8 years.

An energy efficient pool heating solution that could result in long term savings on bills!

90% of the heat loss from a swimming pool occurs because of evaporation and with a solar cover on your pool – which acts as a sort of blanket on the surface of the water keeping the warmth in – heat loss due to evaporation can be greatly reduced by up to 85%. Furthermore, the solar capabilities of these covers mean that on a warm, sunny day the top 4 inches of swimming pool water can have its temperature increased by up to 10 deg C.

Classifications of swimming pool solar covers are judged by the thickness of the plastic they’re made from, which is measured in Microns. The higher the Micron count the more durable the solar cover will be meaning that a 500Micron solar cover is guaranteed for much longer than a cheaper 200 micron one.

Please note: Solar Covers are placed on pools with the bubbles on the underside of the cover, pressing into the pool water! Also, if you have an in ground swimming pool then you may also need a roller in order to take the cover off the pool.
