Our solar blankets are made to give you the maximum heating and insulation properties, combined with long life. Durable 12-mil blankets are loaded with thermal bubbles that retain heat at night and on cloudy cool days. Our transparent blue color helps insure that the sun's heating rays are reaching your pool water. Your pool will be up to 15°F warmer than an uncovered pool. All our blankets are U.V.-protected so they last under the most intense sunlight. They are backed by a 5-Year Warranty.

do these blankets come with straps at one end to attach to the reel?
These covers do not come with the straps but the solar reels usually do.
Do i have to cut the blanket to fit my pool?
Yes, you can.
I have a 18 x 36 pool with walkin step will this be long enough or do I need to order the 18 x 40
Hello, There is either a 18x36 or a 20x40 size, but if you are measuring at an 18x40 then I would get the 20x40 to cover your whole pool.
do you have a solar blanket at 16 by 36? How heavy would it be and can use it while the pump is running?
There is not a 16 X 36 size available. You would need to purchase an 18 X 36 and cut to fit. The weight of the blanket is approximately 38 lbs. You can absolutely use the blanket while the pump is running.
Which one would help keep the water evaporation to a minimum..??
Hi, The Clear and Blue Solar Blankets will offer the same level of water evaporation protection. The clear cover will allow more sun light to pass through heating the pool faster.
Does the solar cover come with an overlap like a winter cover does?
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?
No, the manufacturer does not finish or heat seal the edges on custom sized solar blankets.
What is the difference between the clear and the blue solar blanket?
First, the clear solar blanket is thicker than the blue; the clear is 14 mil thick while the blue is 12 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 6 year warranty as opposed to the 5 year warranty for the blue.

Pros: It is what was describe and it works.
This item arrived fast as others from this website did. It is in a sturdy bag and not damaged. This is the third solar blanket I have had. This blue one is lighter and more flexible than the clear one. nice blue color when on the pool. Works well with the heat pump.

Excellent value. Year round use. Helps keep leaves out of pool as well as has a nice appearance. Easy to remove and does not interfere with the pool sweep. By putting a couple of pool play rings under the blanket the rain runs off and I get no ice on the pool in the winter.

Pros: Prompt delivery. Item decribed is the item I received
I bought the pool cover because it was the thickness I was looking for (my last cover was like a brick). I wanted something that I could take on/off fairly quickly. I ordered the pool cover thinking it was going to take some time to arrive, so it would give me a few days to clean the pool up. A couple of days after ordering, there it is, on my front porch and the item was exactly as described. This is 2 for 2. I found my site for pool supplies.

I'd been shopping around for solar blankets in my area and found Inyo Pool had the best price. Received the order quickly and when I opened it, it was nicer than I expected. This is the second order I have placed with this company and I'll be back.
