Solar pool covers can save up to 97% of water evaporation loss. This then greatly reduces the need to top up the pool during the course of the year. This means that the pool owner is not drawing water from the city supply or harvested rain water stored in tanks to top up water lost through evaporation. A leaf and debris cover’s ability to reduce evaporation is less than that of a solar blanket but still significant. In both cases, the cover’s ability to stop or greatly reduce evaporation is a great benefit to the environment and preserving our natural water asset.
Above ground winter pool covers are designed and manufactured specifically to withstand harsh weather and cold temperatures and to prevent your pool from becoming damaged during the winter months. These off-season above ground swimming pool covers are made from strong and extremely durable material such as woven polyethylene, with each and every individual strand providing maximized strength. High quality winter pool covers also feature a triple laminated inner scrim topped by a weather resistant coating. This coating is specially designed to provide resistance against harsh weather and UV damage from sunlight so that the cover will provide protection for your pool year after year.
Solar pool covers by comparison are very much like thick bubble wrap and also assist with keeping rubbish out of the pool. While their primary advantage is stopping evaporation and increasing water temperature, if they are correctly fitted they can also greatly contribute to keeping the pool clean as well. In both cases the amount of time saved in keeping the pool clean is significant.
