Solar Pool Covers
Solar pool covers are designed to fit both above-ground and inground pools. Solar covers are available in a variety of shapes and sizes or can be custom-made to fit your pool. Solar pool covers contain air pockets, or bubbles, which capture heat from the sun and transmit the heat to the water in your pool. Most solar covers are made out of a synthetic polyethylene material and are transparent blue in color, although some are available in darker colors such as grey. Solar covers have many benefits and have been known to increase a pool's temperature by 10 to 15 degrees. An above-ground solar cover (24 feet around) costs approximately $80, while an inground rectangular cover (18 x 36 feet) costs approximately $120 online.
