Solar covers help save energy and water by increasing the temperature of your swimming pool by an average of ten degrees. Solar covers will absorb sunlight during day the day and will retain that heat during the evening. Solar Covers can also reduce water and chemical evaporation by up to 70% and can also reduce heating costs.
Solar Sun Rings:
Solar Sun Rings are a passive heating device that acts as an insulating blanket to retain heat from the sun. The solar sun rings are made of two sheets of heavyweight U.V. resistant vinyl, with the upper clear layer holding in insulating air and the lower blue layer absorbing about 50% of the sunlight and converting it to heat.
Winter covers are used to defend from winter weather and prevent debris from falling into the pool. A solid winter cover for an in-ground pool is kept in place with water bags placed around the edge inside sleeves attached to the cover. An above ground pool uses the same type of solid cover, but it is held in place by a combination winch and vinyl coated cable assembly that runs through grommets in the cover. A winter cover is a vital part of winterizing your pool which will make springtime opening easier and more efficient.
Safety covers are the most expensive type of pool cover. A safety cover performs two functions, one is for pool maintenance and the other is as a safety barrier over your pool. All safety covers must meet the requirements in the ASTM standards F1346-91 (1996); that means a cover must be able to support the weight of a small child or animal should they walk out onto the cover. A proper safety cover is securely anchored into the deck area surrounding the pool and lies flat so there are no gaps between the pool and the cover that could allow a child to get under the cover and into the water. Sharp objects can create a hole in your safety cover, but a good cover is made from material that will not run, preventing the hole from becoming larger. Safety covers follow the shape of the pool and have a proper number of anchors embedded around the pool to hold the cover in place. Some covers require professional installation, but many can be installed by the owner. Safety covers are available in a mesh or a solid material. A mesh cover will allow water to pass through but will keep leaves and other debris from getting into the pool.
