The NS550 by Blue Wave pool solar cover is considered the best pool solar cover on the market for a number of reasons. This model employs solar heating in order to increase the temperature of the water by as much as fifteen degrees. Pretty impressive, right?
Overview and Features
This solar pool cover is designed to retain heat, thanks to its innovative insulating thermal bubble design that effectively keeps a pool heated day and night.
This cover is simple to use, features a durable design that will ensure the cover lasts for more than just a season and can be a great investment for any pool owner in search of an powerful cover that can help to save on monthly pool heating costs.
The cover measures in at fourteen MILs thick, so you know it’s durable and effective. The cover is designed for in-ground pools. It’s also able to withstand deterioration caused by pool chemicals or the harmful rays of the sun.
On average, a standard pool cover can last for two years before it begins to deteriorate. This model by Blue Wave can last more than three times longer. The manufacturer includes a six-year warranty.
This is one heavy-duty solar pool cover and can easily outperform its top competitor, the In The Swim solar pool cover.
The pool cover has a slightly cloudy look to it but is clear enough to allow the sun to penetrate the material to heat the water beneath it. It also features diamond-shaped bubbles, which have a reputation for improved heating efficiency compared to bubble pool covers that use round or square-shaped air bubbles.
Another added plus is the fact that the cover works to reduce the amount of top off water that’s needed in order to keep a pool full since it prevents over seventy percent of water loss that’s caused by evaporation.
So, essentially, the cover will not only save you on pool heating costs but it can also save you plenty of cash on your monthly water bill.
As we mentioned, this is an air bubble style solar pool cover that works efficiently to trap heat between the bubbles and the surface of the water. This is currently the most popular style of pool cover simply because it’s the most effective. However, Blue Wave took it a step further by using diamond-shaped air bubbles, a design which has a reputation for making the pool cover even more heat efficient.
Overall, we have to hand it to the manufacturer. This is a solar pool cover that hits all the marks in terms of quality, durability, heating efficiency, and more.
Ease of Use
Setting up the pool cover is simple. This is a manual model that can be easily pulled over the surface of the water to keep the water warm and free of debris. When the pool is in use, simply pull the cover back and roll it up.
