WHAT IS A SOLAR COVER? WHY DO I NEED ONE?
A solar pool cover or "solar blanket" is one of the most cost efficient and eco-friendly ways to keep your swimming pool warm. Solar pool covers are made of thousands of enclosed bubbles that work like a greenhouse to trap heat from the sun and transfer it to the pool, naturally increasing the water temperature by up to 10-15°. The heat trapped by the solar blanket will keep your pool warming during the evening hours allowing you to extend your swimming hours and season. Solar Covers also keep pools warm by preventing warmer water from evaporating away, saving money on chemical costs as well as reducing heating costs by 70% or more!
All Velox Solar Covers are made from UV resistant material backed by a 3 year warranty and are very durable, resisting tears and damage from debris while helping to keep leaves and dirt out of your pool. Our 12-mil, 5-year warranty covers are excellent for a wide range of climates and pools, and are available in nearly every size. For older pool cover reels, consider the light-weight 8-mil thickness to make storage and installation a snap. Velox Pool Covers are available in either dark blue or clear, providing two ways to heat your pool and match your poolside decor!
