to make sure this fits.
SAVE ON HEATING COSTS: Sun2Solar clear solar blankets are made from a film of thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool at night and on those chilly days. The clear color allows the sunâs UV rays to penetrate deeper into your swimming pool for warmer water temperatures. Pay less and swim more.
MINIMIZE WATER EVAPORATION: The use of a solar cover helps in preventing up to 95% of pool water evaporation. When not enjoying a refreshing swim, keeping your pool covered lessens the vast amount of water lost into the environment. Fill up your swimming pool less and enjoy it more!
HEAT RETENTION: After everyone has called it a day with wrinkled fingers from too much fun in the sun, make sure to place this solar cover back atop the water. Donât lose all of that warmth generated throughout the day when the sun sets. Assure your poolâs temperature does not drop too much by protecting it at night through use of a solar blanket.
JUMP INTO WARMTH: Show friends and family your bravery by jumping in without the standard toe dip. Enter the swimming pool confidently knowing the Sun2Solar solar cover has kept the water warm just for you. Itâs easy to put on and take off allowing more time for showing off.
TRIM TO FIT: Your pool may be uniquely shaped and getting the right fit is as easy as finding a marker and sharp pair of scissors. Have the bubbles facing down to the water and trace a line on the cover showing where you should cut off the additional material. Do so confidently knowing this wonât affect the manufacturerâs warranty—they understand.

So, how good goes it work?
A lot better than I expected. I put the cover on the pool at approximately 8am. The floating thermometer registered 62 degrees. By the end of the day, the pool registered 68 degrees. Please note that I am using a floating thermometer and the top layers of the water warm faster than the bottom layers. After about a week of use, and moderately cold weather the pool got to 72 degrees. Yesterday we had a nice, hot day the the thermometer registered 80 degrees.
Before I got the cover no one in their right mind would have gone in the pool. Last weekend we had the family over and the pool was very popular. If this cover only lasts one season, I would be happy.
I am a new pool owner without a lot of experience, so I had no idea on what to expect. But this was a good buy.
I’ve looked into hearing the pool from gas heaters to heaters mounted on the roof. I decided to give the solar blanket a try because it was within my budget.
Before installing the solar blanket, the pool was 71 degrees which is too cold for swim. The first day after installing the solar blanket the pool climbed up to 74 degrees. The next couple of days the weather was in the high 80s. The pool climbed 76, 78, and 80. The highest it reached was 86.
I would’ve never imagined my pool ever getting this warm without expensive equipment and a large utility bill.
The solar blanket was easier to cut then I had thought. Used a new scissor and it sliced it like a hot knife through butter.
The instructions and explanation of warranty was well written. I will definitely purchase this again!

For those of you on the fence concerning a pool cover, let me tell you the benefits I’ve noticed. 1. You can heat your pool easier. The numbers I see thrown around of up to ten degrees are for the most part true. Before I started using pool covers, I could hope for a summer time high water temperature of 80-82 degrees. With the pool cover I can keep it at about 85 with ease (too warm for my taste but that’s how my wife likes it. I was gone last weekend and when I took the cover off on Monday, the water temp was 90 degrees! I had to keep the cover off for a couple days to get it back to a suitable temperature.
2. It saves on chemicals. Now of course, the higher your water temperature the more chlorine you go through, but with the cover on it keeps the chlorine from leaking away into the atmosphere allowing it to work in your pool longer.
3. It saves on water. The way you heat water is by evaporating it, but with a cover, that evaporating water goes right back into the system. During the summer I can lose maybe a quarter inch of water a day without the pool cover on versus a quarter inch every couple days with it on. In fact the only time that I’m losing water is when I take the cover off to swim.
4. It keeps the pool cleaner. I honestly haven’t used the automatic vacuum in nearly a month. I pick up the few leaves that get in by net but I haven’t had to clean it in any other way. That in itself is a real time saver.
All told, it is a bit of an outlay for the entire reel system and the covers last only about perhaps 18 months at best, but overall I would consider the pool cover system to be one of the better purchases I’ve made. And as for the pool cover, this one has been an excellent purchase and value. I will surely, 100% buy my next cover from them.
