CLEAR SOLAR BLANKET
PREMIUM CLEAR SOLAR BLANKET HEATS YOUR POOL FASTER THAN BLACK OR SILVER!
Use our new Clear solar blankets to heat your pool faster. Our solar blankets are laced with air bubbles that act as an insulating layer, shielding your swimming 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 14 MIL material so they will outlast most other above-ground blankets on the market. They are backed by a 6-Year Warranty. Invest in the solar blanket that will give you the best heating you can buy — Clear.

Hi, we have a pool heater and live in the CA bay area. I have four questions. 1. Would the clear cover help with heating the pool therefor lower heating cost? 2. Or would the clear cover heat the pool, but then, since it is clear, allow more heat to escape? 3. Would the blue cover be more efficient in keeping the water warm after the pool heater heats it. 4. Or is it a toss up as to which would save on heating cost? I'm confused.
They both trap the heat the same, but the clear solar cover will allow more sun rays to enter resulting in the clear cover to heat pool faster.
What solar pool cover would you recommend for our in-ground 18 x 36 pool with a heat pump? Clear vs Blue? Our last few solar covers have broken down and the plastic circles are floating all over in our pool.
Hello, I would recommend the Clear Solar Blanket 18' X 36' Rect. - NS525 the clear solar blanket is thicker than the blue; the clear is 14 mil thick while the blue is 12 mil. 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.
Thank you for answering the questions I had but could you tell me which Blue Solar Cover 14' X 28' you would recommend and what would the price be. We live in Florida. Thanks, Tom
Good afternoon Tom Wilson, 6year warranty $94.99 Clear Solar Blanket 14' X 28' Rect. - NS. 10 year $129.99 14' x 28' Rect. Clear Supreme Solar Cover, 16 Mil - SC-CL-000341.
Is this a good blanket for a pool that is being heated? Do you find that there is a problem with billed up mildew and if so what is your recommendation.
Hi, Tom. The Blue Solar Covers are better for pools that already have a heating system. Mildew only occurs when the cover is stored improperly. Rinse the cover off then completely dry it off and store it in a dry area.
What's the pricing on a 12' x 32' 14 mil. MagniClear Solar Blanket?
Good Morning Bill, The Custom 14 Mil Magni-Clear Solar Blanket 12' x 32' - HENKEL is $111.99 But do not have in stock the only solar cover close to this size is Clear Solar Blanket 16' X 32' Rect. - NS520 and is $123.99 and this cover is in stock
Is the clear solar cover really 14 mil throughout the cover or is it 14mil on the edges and many less mil on the actual cover? If the bubbles are 8mil for example, they will disintegrate quickly and splinter from sun, chemicals, rolling and unrolling - all of these are normal usage for a solar cover, If less than 14mil throughout, the cover is trouble for skimmers and filter, flake in pool, do not heat the water and thus make for a disappointed (and vocal) customer.
AJM, I would recommend calling the manufacturer directly. You can reach them at 773-287-4400.
What is the best way to store a clear solar cover when the swimming season is over?
Making sure it gets dried out, rolled up, and stored in a place where it's not going to freeze.
If I use your 16 x 32 clear cover and lay it over the light brown automatic pool cover I now have, will I see the color of my cover through yours? Are you able to see my cover or does your cover have a colored background?
Hi, the clear cover is not completely transparent. It is slightly opaque. It is likely you will see some color through the blanket. The blanket is designed to lay bubble side down on top of the water for the most effective way to heat the pool.
Do clear covers cause chlorine to be burned away more quickly than blue covers? Why or why not? Thanks.
Hi Noly, The clear cover can cause the chlorine level in the pool to burn away more quickly because it allows more sun light to pass through heating the pool faster. The higher the temperature of the pool water is the more chlorine you will go through.
Can these be cut to fit a kidney shaped pool?
Hi Chriss Yes you can cut these blankets to fit your pools shape. please do order over sized from the wideest point and longest point to allow you to do this.

Is it necessary to cover the blanket while stored on the reel
It is not necessary to cover the blanket while stored on the reel. You can if you choose to though to keep from to much sun wearing away at it.
How much does the NS520 clear cover weigh?
The weight of the solar cover is approximately 35 pounds.
What color are the Magni-Clear solar covers? They appear to be silver in color.
The Magni-Clear solar blankets are clear in color. They look silver in the photo due to lighting and background effects used to show detail.
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.
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.

LOVE this solar pool cover! It works so much better than the blue ones we've had in the past. It's thicker and a much better quality, and it really heats the water up perfectly. Very fast shipping, too! Highly recommend.

Cons: Straps not included
The cover was what I expected and it seems to work just fine, it would have been better if the straps to attach it to the roller would have been included or maybe suggested upon check out by a pop up or something. Other than that, seems to be a fine solar cover.
