Pool Covers

Pool Covers

Above ground pool solar covers are designed to help a pool retain heat. They function as a 'blanket' to keep water from losing heat that it has stored up during the day. While thickness helps, the true measure of how well a solar cover works is the amount of bubbles the cover has per square foot, since air is the true insulator. They simply lay "bubbles down" on top of the water and are cut to size. Winter covers are generally 3' to 4' larger than the size of the pool so that they can go over the pools top rails. It is tied down by a vinyl coated cable and winch that slip through grommets that are positioned around the outer edge of the cover. They also vary in thickness and keep extra dirt debris and water out of the pool as well as flying debris that can damage the liner.
