Product Description


Use our new Clear pool solar blankets to heat your pool faster. Our solar blankets are laced with air bubbles that act as an insulating layer, shielding your pool from cool winds and nighttime cooling (for installation, the blanket goes bubble side down). In addition, our clear blankets allow more solar heat to reach the depths of your pool and heat it thoroughly. Our blankets are made of extra-thick 12-gauge material so they will outlast most other above-ground blankets on the market. They are backed by a 5-Year Warranty. Invest in the solar blanket that will give you the best heating you can buy — Clear.

We have a 24' round pool. Do you have to have a reel for the clear solar cover, or can you just lay it on top manually? Is it difficult and bulky to store this cover?

A  Answered on 8/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dianne. I'm sorry, we do not have any reels available at this time. The cover can be manually placed and taken off of the pool.

To get maximum heat from your solar blanket, does it need to be stationary or moving around the pool by the water inlets? What does one do about ladders into the pool?

A  Answered on 5/18/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard. Yes, the cover will need to be stationary. Water movement is okay when the cover is on. For the ladder, you can make a cut out for the ladder.

I have a 22 ft. Coleman round above ground pool that gets about 3 to 4 hours of sunlight will this help raise the temp. My backyard is pretty much shaded. Also can this stay on the pool while the pump is running. I've already got rid of the little pump and filter that came with the pool because it was way to small and not doing the job. Replaced with a 1 1/2 hp. pump and a larger filter system so I have really good water flow. Thanks

Hi Robert, This Solar Blanket can help raise your pool temperature. It can also stay on the pool while the pump is running.

Does the solar cover do anything to prevent excessive debris from getting in the pool? My neighbors have a large tree that overhangs my property and I'm looking to get a product that will heat the pool while also minimizing the amount of foliage that gets in during the fall season.

A  Answered on 5/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes the debris would land on the cover thus preventing the debris from landing in the pool, but we would not suggest if your debris is very heavy as the solar cover really is not designed as cover to handle a lot of debris.

My swimming pool water is always cold. A pool heater is not in my budget right now. Is there anything I can use to make the water temperature more comfortable?

A  Answered on 8/23/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you get a lot of direct sunlight on the pool, I would recommend using our Magni Clear solar blanket. The Magni Clear solar blanket allows the suns rays to reach the pool water which gives you free heat. The Magni Clear solar blanket also helps retain that heat helping you to reach and maintain a more comfortable water temperature.

Does the solar cover come with an overlap like a winter cover does?

A  Answered on 1/30/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

No, the solar cover does not come with an overlap. A solar cover is designed to sit on top of the water's surface and fits on the inside perimeter of the pool wall.

Are the edges on the custom solar blankets finished in any way?

A  Answered on 3/26/2007 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

No, the manufacturer does not finish or heat seal the edges on custom sized solar blankets.

What is the benefit of the clear solar blanket over the blue one?

A  Answered on 6/25/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

First, the clear solar blanket is thicker than the blue; the clear is 12 mil thick while the blue is 8 mil. Secondly, the clear allows the sun to pass through the blanket thus heating the water better.  The blue blanket tends to absorb the heat itself so the blanket gets hot, not the water.  Lastly, the clear blanket has a 5 year warranty as opposed to the 3 year warranty for the blue.
