Part # NS440
Warranty 5 Years
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.

Does the solar blanket come with a winter cover ? Our last one had a white cover for winter storage .
Hi, Robert. The storage bag is not included with the solar cover.
I have a free form inground pool. Am I able to cut the blanket to size?
Hi Del, You are able to cut the blanket to fit your pool's shape.
What are the terms of the warranty? Is it prorated?Are there fees or handling costs for replacement under warranty?
Hi Bob L, The terms will vary because we have couple different manufacture. However the warranty is prorated and shipping and handling fees are not covered under the warranty. Whatever that cost is you will have to pay that cost.
What solar cover will hold up in a salt water pool better?
The clear solar blankets are the more thicker/durable covers that we would recommend that you could view here.
Is there a striking difference "heat-wise" in the 8 mil thick solar cover and the 12 mil thick solar cover? Which would you recommend for ultimate pool heating?
Debbie, "Heat-Wise" The thicker the solar blanket the better. Also if you wanting to make it hotter you will want to go with the clear 14-16 mil cover as it allows the sunlight to pass through and not escape. Also it will cut down on evaporation.
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.
