Increase pool temperature by up to 8°C through
solar energy gain
The unique two ply combination of a Sol+Guard cover allows maximum solar gain to pass through the cover increasing the pool temperature by up to 8°C.
Eliminate Water Evaporation by 98% +
With a Sol+Guard pool blanket you will be able to eliminate water evaporation by over 98%, thus greatly reducing your water consumption and your water charges, as well as saving a vital natural resource.
Plastipack carried out research, in collaboration with the Brighton and London Metropolitan Universities, which proved that the evaporation loss in the UK for an average sized pool, 4m x 8m, is approximately 32,000 litres per year. This figure is considerably higher for hotter climates and windy conditions.
Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 40%
A Sol+Guard cover can help reduce chemical losses by evaporation by up to 30% when it is in use. All pool chemical levels and treatment should be maintained at the manufacturers recommended level.
Reduce Energy Consumption by over 70%
You can reduce your pool heating costs because a Sol+Guard cover will eliminate evaporation and greatly reduce heat radiation.
Heat retention tests carried out in collaboration with the Brighton and London Metropolitan Universities, showed conclusive energy savings of over 50% in the UK. This applied to oil, gas, electric heater or heat pump usage. Where solar heating is used, it is possible to invest in up to half the amount of panels normally required for a pool without a cover.
Reduce Debris Contamination
Debris such a leaves, dirt, insects and bird droppings are not only unsightly in a pool but also provide nutrients for algae and bacteria to feed on. When the pool is covered these contaminants will be kept out of the water, greatly improving the quality and appearance of the water.
A Sol+Guard cover will save money by reducing water, heating and chemical costs.
What is GeoBubble Technology?
Scientifically designed to be more resistant to Ultra Violet (UV) and chemical attack for longer than a traditional shape bubble, and as a result its expected lifespan will increase by 25%+. Eliminating weak and thin points in the material gives a stronger pool cover that can withstand the chemical and UV attack which leads to premature failure.
