Benefits of a pool blanket

Pool blankets, also known as pool covers or solar blankets, offer a whole host of benefits for pool owners including:

Heat Retention

One of the primary benefits of a pool blanket is its ability to retain heat in the water. The cover acts as a barrier, preventing heat from escaping and keeping the pool warmer for longer periods, especially during cooler nights. This can help extend the swimming season and reduce the need for additional heating for your pool.

Energy Savings

By reducing heat loss, pool blankets can help lower energy consumption and heating costs. Pool heaters, whether powered by electricity, solar energy, or gas can operate more efficiently when the pool is covered, as they have less work to do to maintain the desired temperature. This can result in significant energy savings over time.

Reduced Water Evaporation

Pool blankets also help reduce water evaporation, which is particularly beneficial in hot and sunny climates like Queensland. By covering the pool surface, the blanket helps minimise water loss due to evaporation, reducing the need for frequent refilling and topping up of the pool water. These savings add up quickly with the ever inflating water prices on the Coast.

Chemical Savings

Pool blankets can help reduce chemical consumption by minimising exposure to sunlight and atmospheric contaminants. With less evaporation and reduced exposure to sunlight, chlorine and other pool chemicals can remain more stable and effective, requiring fewer adjustments and additions to maintain proper water chemistry.

Debris Protection

In addition to heat retention and water conservation, pool blankets can also serve as a barrier against leaves, dirt, and other debris from entering the pool. This helps keep the pool water clean and reduces the need for manual skimming and cleaning, saving time and effort on maintenance tasks.

Investing in a high-quality pool blanket can provide long-term savings and enjoyment for swimming pool owners, making it a worthwhile addition. When used in conjunction with a roller it becomes quick and easy to put on and off.
