The In The Swim solar pool cover features the popular bubble cover design that’s perfect for any pool owner on a tight budget. This cover features very small air bubbles, that are said to work better when it comes to transferring solar heat to the pool. Reasonably priced and easy to use, this is a great model for anyone in search of a solar cover that can help save money on their annual pool heating costs.
Overview and Features
This pool cover has the look and durability you’d expect from a cover that’s twice the price. While this may not be the thickest model on the market, it’s definitely one of the most durable.
As we mentioned, this cover features the air bubble design, but instead of using large air bubbles, this cover features thousands of tiny micro-bubbles that work to trap the heat more efficiently. On average, many users reported that their pools did stay warmer for a longer period of time. Additionally, the cover also works to reduce water loss and chemical loss that’s due to evaporation.
The cover itself is very versatile. While we still recommend measuring your pool prior to ordering a pool cover, this cover can be easily trimmed in order to perfectly fit the shape of your pool.
However, if you’re in need of a larger pool cover, we recommend the In The Swim 12 Mil Blue/Black 24 x 44 ft model, which offers many of the same benefits as this twelve foot by twenty foot cover.
Ease of Use
Like other models of manual pull covers, simply pull the cover over the pool when you’re done using it and pull it back and roll it up when the pool is in use. The cover is described as very lightweight, durable, and easy to use.
This product is backed by a seven-year limited warranty, which is pretty impressive considering most higher priced pool covers usually only come with an average three-year warranty.
The cover offers a twelve MIL thickness, which is decent for the price. Some pool owners prefer a thicker cover, but for most pools, this thickness should work just fine.

This pool cover is made out of tough durable UV-protected polyresin material, which is designed to handle a lot of wear and tear like a champ. It’s because of this level of protection that the pool cover is designed to last up to seven years.
