solar pool blanket

Pool solar blankets, also called solar pool covers, are the most affordable products in the world of swimming pool cover-ups. Solar pool blankets can keep your pool clean when it is not in use by covering it up completely. They also reduce the energy loss caused by evaporation.

Solar pool blankets come in two types, the bubble wrap versions and the vinyl versions. The bubble wrap versions are very common. The solar pool blanket contained bubbles that trap the sun’s heat then transfers this heat to the pool and the water in it, thus heating the water in the pool. This heat is then kept from escaping when the solar pool blankets lock them in.

Solar pool blanket installation requires a placement on pools and there to float around. Some solar pool blanket types do not come with anchors but still retain its right position over the pool. And when you want to start using your pool again, such as during the summer or spring, you can remove the solar pool blanket and just jump in. Removal, however, is not as easy as it sounds. You may need to ask help from a couple more people to make sure it pushes through.

Solar pool blankets are equipped with thousands of tiny thermal bubbles; these bubbles store that can be distributed to the water at night and during the cold days. Also, make sure to look for solar pool blankets that come with U.V. protection. Most solar blankets are made using homogeneous blends of co-polymers and polymers in two individual layers. Some solar pool blankets, however, already combine these two layers into one.

There are also special liquid solar pool blankets around. One example of a liquid solar pool blanket is the SolarPill Liquid Blanket made specifically for smaller pools. The SolarPill Liquid Blanket can prevent evaporation of water and loss of heat, thanks to its non-toxic biodegradable film.

Liquid solar pool blankets usually contain a full range of various ingredients. For example, the three types of solar pool blankets namely Heatsavr, WaterSavr, and Ecosavr are all quite popular in the market. The Heatsavr liquid solar pool blanket uses simply biodegradable materials that retain the heat while out on the pool. These biodegradable materials has a significant effect on the rate of evaporation, which means it can give plenty of savings to users.

As for WaterSavr, the product contains a powdered form of Heatsavr which works quite effectively in slowing down water evaporation. WaterSavr also contains a fine granulated product that enables it to work effectively in varying conditions.

Lastly, there’s the Ecosavr, a liquid solar pool blanket that contains liquid. This liquid automatically moves to the pool’s surface once the liquid solar pool blanket is placed on the water. While there, the solar pool blanket will work to prevent evaporation. The Ecosavr is also equipped with the Heatsavr ingredient, which is a non-toxic chemical that has been in use since the early 1990s.

Heatsavr is also friendly to the filter and does not affect the water quality at all. Aside from that, Heatsavr is also safe on skin, even sensitive skin, and will not affect the balance of pH, chlorine, and alkaline in the water. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor pools, but do not change the nature of the pools themselves. The Heatsavr chemical is now found in solar pool blankets; it is responsible for preventing steam loss, thus helping you save on dollar costs of heating up your pool.

Liquid solar pool blankets also sometimes come with automatic injectors that allow you to easily add the necessary liquid cover to your pool. It then forms an invisible layer that is about one or two molecules thick, which settles on the pool’s surface and does its work.
