What is a Solar Cover?

A solar cover is a swimming pool cover designed both to retain heat and aid heat gain of swimming pool water through solar energy. Solar covers (bubblecovers) are manufactured using two layers of polyethelene welded together with air pcokets giving a double glazine effect on the water surfece.

 An evolution solar cover will reduce energy loss substantially so can be considered an EcoPool Product.

Solar covers are available in a number of different material colours and thicknesses offering different levels of heat retention and heat gain.

The ideal way is to purchas a good quality pool roller that will allow lyou to handle the cover with ease. therefore gaining the most benefits of owning the pool cover.

If you have to physically handle the cover it is best to fan fold the cover at one end of the pool.

A swimming pool cover will be an ongoing commitment and for ease of handling on and off the pool a good quality roller system should be used.

Considerable benefits include:
