SOLAR POOL COVERS: Solar pool covers deliver solar energy to the waterincreasing the water temperature and reducing heat loss. Pool solarcovers capture heat from sunlight inside thousands of tiny sealed airbubbles and transfer that energy to the pool water. The darker the poolcover color, the more heat they attract and the faster the transfer.Solar covers can increase the water temperature by 15 degrees and addweeks to swimming enjoyment. Solar pool covers can pay for themselvesin terms of energy conservation and help to prevent heat loss and poolwater evaporation. They can reduce your pool heating costs by hundredsof pounds. They come in most standard sizes and can be trimmed to fitthe pool as needed or ordered to fit. Although pool solar covers arelightweight and float on the pool surface, they still can be difficultto manage. Reels can be setup to ease the task of putting the poolsolar cover on or removing it. Using a solar cover without a reel isnot recommended because the blankets are difficult to handle andusually require a couple people. Even without the reel though, thebenefits from the solar heating blanket make it well worth the smallinvestment.
