Solar pool covers and reels for above ground pools are essential pieces of equipment for owners of above ground swimming pools who want to extend their swimming season while saving money.
Through the use of special designs and high-quality materials, solar swimming pool covers provide a wide range of benefits such as increased water temperature and significantly reduced heating costs. When used together with solar cover reels for above ground pools, these pool blankets are very easy and convenient to use, allowing pool owners to enjoy the many advantages of solar covers without any fuss or frustrations.
Solar pool covers for above ground pools are specifically designed to make the very most of the sun’s heat. Constructed from tough stabilized resins, solar covers feature thousands of tiny air pockets all over their surface, creating an appearance reminiscent of bubble wrap.
These air pockets serve as excellent insulators, preventing heat from escaping from your swimming pool. At the same time, the air bubbles also promote heat transference, taking the heat from the sun and using it to raise the temperature of the pool water.
While their design and construction make solar pool covers extremely good at heat retention and transference, these same qualities also provide outstanding durability. The tough materials that solar blankets are made from will stand up to a year after year of use.
Solar pool covers for above ground pools also feature exceptionally strong seams that will lie flat but which will also withstand repeated folding over the years. Strong seams also greatly reduce the likelihood of rips and tears. All of these design features add up to mean that solar pool blankets are an excellent long-term investment.
