This is another popular model by In The Swim that we decided to review, mainly because it received such great feedback from happy pool owners. This is due in part to the innovative dual layer design that makes this one of the most heating efficient pool covers on the market. But it’s also a huge seller because it’s priced so reasonably.
Now, let’s learn more about what this innovative solar pool cover has to offer.
This is a bubble style pool cover, except the manufacturer took it up a notch by using a dual layer design, which provides twice the heating efficiency. Like other models in the In The Swim line, this model is easy to use, simply pull it over the water’s surface to heat the water throughout the day, or pull it back and roll it up when you’re using the pool.
The micro-bubble design utilizes tiny air bubbles that help to increase the cover’s heat retaining ability, efficiently trapping the heat between the bubbles and the water’s surface, so you can enjoy a warm dip in the pool, anytime you want.
Since the cover does such a great job of keeping your pool warm, you can expect to save big on pool heating costs.
Not only with the cover’s dual-layer design work hard to keep your pool heated, but it will also significantly reduce water and chemical loss caused by evaporation. This will save you money on your monthly water bill and on pool chemical costs as well.
Additionally, the cover will protect your pool from dust, dirt, debris, leaves, and more.
This is a larger pool cover which measures in at twenty-four feet by forty-four feet. This is perfect for larger pools, however, if you have an oddly shaped pool or the cover is too large you can easily trim the cover to fit your pool for a more custom fit.
If you’re searching for a larger pool cover for your in-ground pool we recommend the Blue Wave NS460 12 solar pool cover, which measures in at thirty feet by fifty feet. It features a comparable thickness but is a better option for larger pools. Using a pool cover that’s too small will negatively impact the pool cover’s ability to efficiently heat the water.
The pool cover is twelve MIL thick, which is better than average for this price.
We love the style and fit this large pool cover has to offer. It’s also made out of UV-protected polyresin material, so you know it’s designed to last.
For the price, we were surprised to learn that the pool cover comes with an impressive seven-year warranty.
The pool cover comes in a deep blue color, which can be a downside for some pool owners. Many pool owners have reported in the past that clear solar pool covers are able to keep a pool warm more efficiently compared to darker pool covers. In fact, many experts in this field recommend buying only clear covers because the sun’s rays are able to more easily penetrate the cover when compared to dark-colored covers.
