General Information About Solar Covers

Solar Pool Covers Increase Water Temperature

solar_cover_heat_gain
Gains of up to 8C can be achieved by the suns solar energy passing through the translucent cover, causing heat gain in the same way that a greenhouse heats up. A very translucent cover such as the solguard will give the best results for solargain. This is particularly useful in southern eurpoean climates, but less so than in the UK, where we recommend the Ultimate Geobubble due to its all round properties.

Solar Covers Reduce Evaporation

solar_cover_evaporation_prevention
Evaporation can be virtually eliminated. With the cover on, the water is effectively sealed, preventing the escape of water moisture. Evaporation is the major cause of heat loss, even in the Uk. Research has shown that an average sized pool can lose as much as 32 ooo litres per year. This figure will be considerably large in sunny and or windy climates. There are associated losses of chemicals that go with this.

Swimming Pool Solar Covers Retain Heat

solar_cover_heat_retention
Overall heating costs will be reduced by using any solar cover, but will be particularly noticeable by using a cover with a reflective underside, such as the Ultimate Geobubble. The reflective colour of the bubbles mean that the cover acts in a similar way to thermos, and will reflect heat back into the pool, rather than radiated away to the air. This is particularly effective on heated pools, and will help to minimize heating costs.

How Poolwarehouse Solar Covers Are Made

geobubble_solar_cover_layers
All of the material that is used by poolwarehouseuk.com is sourced strictly from the UK manufacturer Plastipack Ltd. Their products are sold worldwide and they are widely recognised as the leader in the field of premium solar cover materials. The material is made from a two ply polyethylene. Depending on the type of finished product, these two plys may be different in colour. For example the Ultimate is made from a dark blue upper layer and a silver colour underside.
The bottom layer is formed into individual bubble shapes and then the top layer is placed on top. In the case of the new GeoBubble, the individual bubbles are much larger, and form a figure of eight shape. Chemicals are added to the plastic to inhibit the attack of UV from the sunlight, and also to protect from attack from aggressive pool chemicals.
