Overview and Features
This pool cover is available in a couple of color options: blue or clear. Clear is by far the biggest seller.
The clear pool cover allows the UV rays to easily penetrate the cover in order to heat the water below.
The design of the cover works to retain heat well, so the pool won’t lose any heat that’s been generated throughout the day, once the sun has set. The cover can also be left on during the night in order to ensure the temperature doesn’t drop so you can enjoy an early morning swim.
If you live in a warmer climate that experiences intense summer heat, then you’re probably tired of having to add more water and chemicals when you want to go for a swim. This loss of water is due to evaporation. This cover works to not only heat your pool, but it can help cut down on the water and chemicals lost by evaporation by more than sixty percent.
This pool cover measures in at twenty feet by forty feet.
If you have a kidney-shaped pool or a pool with a unique shape, then you may have trouble finding a solar pool cover that offers the perfect fit. Fortunately, this model by Sun2Solar can be trimmed to perfectly fit a pool of any size and shape.
Trimming the cover to fit your pool is simple and won’t negatively affect the integrity of the cover. To do, place the cover with the air bubbles facing down and trim away. Trimming the cover will not affect the product warranty.
The warranty includes eight years of coverage for manufacturer defects and just two years of full standard coverage. This means that if your cover begins to disintegrate after the two-year period, the manufacturer will not replace it unless the damage is due to a defect during the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, many pool owners have reported that the cover doesn’t last much longer than two years.
