A solar cover is essential to the running of your swimming pool in the UK. Not only will it generate free heat from the sun but it will also slow down heat loss and help to reduce evaporation. As the sun's rays pass through the cover, the heat generated is trapped by the bubbles on the underside of the cover which in some cases can result in as much as 8°C+ temperature rise - a sunny day will of course help to achieve this! However, as most of us are running the pool with a heater, whether that's a heat pump, electric, gas or oil boiler, the aim is the same - keep the heat in the water.

If your pool is indoors, then a heat retention cover would be more suitable so check out our heat retention cover section. 

Important Note : With the exception of our standard above ground solar covers, all of our covers are manufactured to order in the UK using only the very best materials, and you need to check out the finishing section to have an idea of the final costs for your cover.

Solar Cover - 200 micron

Standard Solar Cover for ROUND above ground pools 200 and 230 Micron

OUT OF STOCK

A solar cover is essential and should be on the surface of the pool at all times times when you are not swimming.

A solar cover allows a build up of free heat from the sun during the day and it will also act like a blanket to keep heat loss to a minimum overnight.

There are many grades of solar cover, and generally, the thicker the cover, the greater will be its heating properties and its lifespan.

Solar covers can also save you money by helping to prevent pool chemicals from evaporating into the atmosphere. 

If the bubbles on your current solar cover have started to burst and/or the cover is  'flaking' or de-laminating, you need to replace it immediately. 

Need a specific size? There is a charge for shaping, and a cut out charge and shaping for a bay. Ensure you review what's available to you in the Finishing Options section, and then send us an email: sales@dolphinpools.co.uk - we'll be happy to help.

AquaSpoiler Leading Edge

AquaSpoiler Leading Edge

The AquaSoiler ultimate sturdy leading edge made from extruded ABS with one central pulling point for ease of use. 

Strong, rigid and buoyant, the AquaSpoiler is made from ABS, and works by attaching it to the edge of a solar cover. It's designed to allow the cover to glide easily through the water while remaining totally buoyant. Incredibly easy to install, there's only one central pulling point, using a detachable rope that can then be stored safely out of the way. 

A standard leading edge can become mouldy and become a breeding ground for bacteria.  After a couple of years, it can begin to look untidy with leaves and twigs stuck inside the netting. Together with the sun damaging it with its harmful rays, it can look really ugly on your pool. However, this is something you will not have to worry about with the innovative AquaSpoiler.
