Swimming S Swimming Pool Blankets Save Water, 
Reduce Heating Costs and CO2 Emission

      

 Find out how solar pool blankets save water, reduce heating costs and greenhouse gas emission
 
If used correctly, solar heat blankets can halve the heating running cost of your pool heater* 
       

Pool blankets are one of the most cost effective elements 
of any pool heating system.  Since 70% of all heat loss is evaporative and convective, the pool blanket provides a simple barrier and cuts almost all of these losses when in use.  The net result is significant savings in heating costs.  The most common pool covers are
solar pool blankets of tiny, transparent bubbles that are designed to trap sunlight and warm the pool.  Solar pool blankets can reduce pool heating time and heating costs by up to 50%. By using a solar pool blanket in conjunction with Gas Pool Heating, Heat Pump Pool Heating or Solar Pool Heating systems, significant energy cost savings and reduction in greenhouse gas emission can be made.  As solar pool blankets significantly reduce evaporation, water is also saved.  

You can extend the swimming season even without other forms of heating on the pool by the addition of a solar pool blanket that can result in a temperature increase of  6 to 8 C in a pool that has a sunny aspect.

Consideration should also be given to installing a roller with the pool blanket for easy rollout when not using the pool and removal when the pool is in use. For the more technically minded, click here to see the Fact Sheet on Pool Blankets from SPASA NSW.

We supply blankets that are welded horizontally, for precision fitting irregularly shaped pools and for ease of rolling. See below.

Points to consider when you decide to have 
your pool heating installed


As during Winter, water in the pool is cooling mostly overnight
or due to wind anytime during a day
a solar pool blanket cover can minimize this happening.
IT'S TIME FOR WINTER ACTION!
To make the most of your swimming pool's usage this Winter  
get a solar pool cover installed
to cover your pool when it is not used and 
to minimize overnight and windy cooling.
   

In making the most of this pool's usage this Winter,
you'll gain greater benefits
with additional energy and cost saving as BONUS
not only throughout this Winter 
but also later in next  Spring, Summer & Autumn.
   
  

You can save up to 50% of your heating running cost 
by having a solar pool blanket installed 
over your existing swimming pool

If you can heat your pool ON DEMAND during the 16 hours/day OFF-PEAK 2 
in controlled electricity load periods, 
you can
CUT your HEATING RUNNING COST by up to 60%, 
by being charged at OFF-PEAK 2 electricity rate

OFF-PEAK PERIODS for CONTROLLED ELECTRICITY USAGE
Typical off-peak periods offered by various electricity retailers

All times stated are based on Australian Eastern Standard Times (AEST).
Off-Peak 1 price is available for supply that is usually available for a 6 hour duration 
between 10pm to 7am.

FAST TRACK your pool's temperature NOW to 25 to 28 C
by heating your pool ON DEMAND during the 16 hours/day controlled electricity load periods.

 

 

 

The diagram to the left indicates that an appropriate pool blanket can save warmth and evaporation. We shall refer to this type of blanket as a solar pool blanket.

Free solar energy passes through the special transparent cover material to heat the pool water. It works just like a garden greenhouse.

More warmth in - less heat out.
The lighter colour blanket cover allows more heat in but stops heat escaping.

 

Solar Pool Blankets Fitted to Various Shaped Pools

Here you can see varying shaped pools covered by solar pool blankets. How to use blanket rollers with each shaped pool is also illustrated. The solar pool blanket is made from a colorless transparent plastic material. The blanket colour in the pictures is that of the water in the pools. For how water colour is perceived, you can click here. NOTE: We supply blankets that are welded horizontally, for precision fitting irregularly shaped pools AND for ease of rolling. 

TO SUMMARIZE:  Solar pool blankets 

  • Can heat your pool by up to 8 Degrees Celsius by allowing the sun's solar energy to pass through the blanket;
  • Can reduce the rate the pool water heat loss by evaporation by as much as 97%;
  • Can also reduce water loss by evaporation that without a pool cover is estimated to be between 50% and 150% of the pools capacity in water per year;
  • Can cut the running cost of gas or heat pump pool heating by up to 50%;
  • Cut your chemical usage by as much as 50%;
  • Will keep your pool much cleaner.

Solar Pool Blankets Rollers for Various Shaped Pools

These come in mobile or fixed to the ground format. The rollers are attractive, durable and easy to use. They are high on quality and value for money and come with a 10 year Pro Rata Warranty.  Rope Kits and Suncovers are included.

Non-standard sized rollers for special needs can be manufactured to suit all situations.  

           

A Solar Pool Blanket can halve the heating running cost of your pool heater*

For Gas Pool Heaters

Using a spreadsheet modelling technology, the Heating Running Costs are determined for heating a swimming pool with and without a solar pool blanket. Click here, to see the results displayed. 

More than half of the heating running costs are really saved.
  

For Heat Pump Pool Heaters

Using a spreadsheet modelling technology, the Heating Running Costs are determined for heating a swimming pool with and without a solar pool blanket. Click here, to see the results displayed.

More than half of the heating running costs are really saved.
  

Leaf and Debris Swimming Pool Covers

Leaf and debris covers are fitted exactly to the shape of the pool it is covering. As these covers are meant to stay on the pool for an extended period of time when the pool is not in use, they are fixed firmly to the edge of the pools by a quick release cleat system.  There is a choice of two colours, blue and green in a high strength, fine weave polypropylene.
