    What is the difference between clear and blue swimming pool solar covers?

    December 28, 2010

    Megapoolandspa.com offers two types of swimming pool solar blankets.

    What is the difference between clear and blue swimming pool solar covers?

    We have blue and clear solar pool covers.

    Blue swimming pool solar blankets are the most economical and commonly purchased.  They are also lighter weight than the clear cover.

    The clear swimming pool solar covers allow more sunlight to pass through the cover and heat the pool water.

    Swimming Pool Solar Covers

    December 28, 2010

    Please visit Mega Pool and Spa for more information on solar blankets

    Swimming pool solar covers lay directly on the water and trap heat which allows you to swim in water 10-15 degrees warmer than normal. You can start swimming earlier in the year and close the pool later than you usually would.

         These insulating thermal blankets are made of plastic and contain thousands of air bubbles. Sunlight is able to pass through the sheet to heat the water, but the thickness of the plastic and the air pockets act as an insulating barrier to retain the heat in the water. By trapping the heat from leaving, you will not need to run your pool heater as much. You can easily trim the covers to fit and they can be rolled up used with a solar reel or folded and put away.

         Evaporation is a main cause of heat loss. These “bubble covers” as they are also called, act as a barrier to stop your water and chemicals from entering the air.

         We offer two styles of solar covers. The blue opaque solar pool blankets covers are the standard 8mil for above ground pools or 12mil for inground pools. The Magni Clear solar pool covers are 14 gauge and since they are clear and not as opaque, they allow more sunlight to penetrate to the pool surface.

         Covers should be used when the pool is not in use. If there is a lot of sunlight or the ambient temperature is high, you may not need to cover your pool during the day, but it’s a good idea to cover your swimming pool at night to prevent heat and chemical evaporation. On cloudy as well as windy days, it’s recommended to keep the pool covered.

         When you first get your blanket, lay it out and wait a few days before you trim it to size. You want to allow the blanket to shrink and expand due to the folds, pleats, and exposure to sunlight. Then, you can use a pair of scissors to trim the cover to size as close to the pool wall if needed. The solar cover should be placed on the water with the bubble side down, smooth side up. This increases the surface area for the sun to penetrate and makes the air bubbles act as insulation to keep the heat from escaping.
