Solar blankets are an effective and economical way to protect an evaporative heat loss while ensuring that debris and vegetation are kept out of the water.
Because the pool has such a large surface area of water it loses heat energy at an alarming rate quickly. In fact pointed out that, by covering the pool with a solar blanket when not in use, it is possible to reduce heating costs by more than 60%.
How the solar cover works
Solar blanket (sometimes called blanket) is designed for the optimization of water temperature control and they can be considered as a "passive" form of solar heating. You can browse www.autopoolreel.com/solar-pool-cover.html to know more about solar pool cover.
The blanket works by preventing evaporation which in turn results in higher retention of heat energy in the water volume of the pool. The solar blanket also can raise the water temperature around 15 degrees on a sunny day. This is achieved because the cover is not only retaining heat stored in the water but also passes the energy of sunlight into the pond to raise the temperature above that of the surroundings.
Swimming pool cover usually runs in the swimming area and secured using fasteners. Most quilts easily installed and removed with the help of a roller and a winding mechanism at one end of the pool (which can be motorized).
Alternatives include having a set of lugs are located around the perimeter (the cover can be secured), or use a small amount of solar modular floating unit cover and heat can be discharged into the water during periods of inactivity.
Further advantages of pool cover
Solar blankets have other benefits besides reducing water evaporation. They offer UV protection shield and increase the life of the pool liner and, in the case of high-quality bedding, giving the original thermal heat insulation properties (other than evaporation preventive properties).
By protecting the pool falls and debris bound air, solar blanket cleaning reduces both the time and amount of money spent on cleaning chemicals and general maintenance.
