Solar Blankets are used to reduce overnight evaporation resulting in heat loss and to some extent aid in actually heating the pool.
At Cambridge Pool Supplies we stock two different quality solar covers. We carry the industry standard rectangular sizes that can be cut to conform to your specific shape. MIDWEST CANVAS
offers a 3 year blue solar cover, as well as a new 5 year CLEAR solar cover. The theory is that with a clear cover the suns UV rays are able to go through the cover, and therefore, can heat the water.
Don't want to fight with a solar blanket? Try "The Original Solar Pool Cover" Ecosaver.
Ecosaver is a pre-measured convenient way to prevent overnight evaporation and heat loss. Ecosaver is safe to use, there is no smell or waxy feel. You can use Ecosaver along with your solar cover, or on its own. The Ecosaver
is available as fish that you drop in, or as an auto dispenser.
