Will any unused portion remain effective the following year?
I bought and installed the Hayward 140000 btu pool heat pump.
These nights recently are cool, falling as low as 40 degrees.
Do I need a blanket in addition to Natural Chemistry COVER FREE 1 Gallon - 07109 to reduce heat sink?
I'm losing 6 to 8 degrees overnight.
What is the best heat pump setting practice for cool nights?
Hi, Dave. You do not need to use a solar blanket, in addition, to Cover Free. You can use one or the other. If you're using a solar blanket or Cover Free which will reduce heat loss, operating the unit during your normal schedule will be best.
I bought the Cover Free from you back in January. I just started using it again to keep the pool warmer overnight. I have about an 18k-20k gallon pool. I put in just shy of 4 oz per week. I'm in Florida. It's about 68-73 at night. I'm still losing between 3-4 degrees overnight. Is this about typical? Seems to be a bit much for this size pool. Thanks.
Good Evening Mike, This is normal .This is a chemical shield have you had rain recently or added water? This would drop the temp.
what will be the weekly consumption With this product for 100m3 =3500 FT3 Summing pool size for external temperature of 16 C =60.8 f and I will need to keep worm around 24 C = 75.5 f after heating.
Thanks in adavnce
You would use about 5-6 ounces every week for a pool size of a little over 26,000 gallons.
Can you share your empirical and statistical data proving evaporation loss prevention?
Wayne, For that information, you will want to contact Natural Chemistry directly: https://naturalchemistry.com/en-us/
is this product safe for a salt water pool?
Hi, The Natural Chemistry Cover Free is 100% safe to use in chlorine tablet and salt water pools. The Cover Free will not only retain heat in the pool as a substitute or a solar blanket, but it also helps prevent water loss from evaporation.
I have a 70 lb. dog that swims every day and drinks her share of water. Is this product safe for consumption by dogs?
Hello David, Here is a link to the Materials Safety Data Sheet associated with Cover Free MSDS. If you have concerns for your pet, I would recommend contacting the manufacturer, Natural Chemistry, on their Support Technical Assistance page or via phone at 1-800-753-1233.
do i need to remove solar cover before adding? how exactly do u use? bottle is confusing-add to pool water or skimmer?
Shake product vigorously.Weekly with circulation system running, add 4 oz. per 675 sq. ft. of surface area, assuming an average pool depth of 4 feet (20,000 gallons).Note: Skimmer application is preferred, however, COVERfree can be added directly to pool water.Important: Circulation system must be running for either application. You do not need to remove solar blanket when adding this product.
Does the product maintain its potency for years or does it expire (can I buy in bulk and use for years)?
Mimi, As long as the product is stored somewhere cool and dry, it can be stored for at least a year or 2.
Pool is no longer used. No longer heated. Interested in saving water. How often should I add Cover Free to the pool. Or do you recommed a blanket?
How does the Coverfree work in the swimming pool?
Coverfree creates an invisible barrier that helps retain heat in the swimming pool similar to a solar blanket. Surface tension allows it to remain in place or reform during swimming.

I have a salt pool here in SW Florida. We can use our pool all year round so it's important to stop rapid evaporation in our dry season. It's also important to stop heat loss at night. We do get some cold nights.
I started using Natural Chemistry Cover Free a few years ago. I do not use it during the warm rainy months, no need, so I start putting in the pool around the end of October. I've found it works to stop the "steaming" loss of pool water and heat. You put it in while it's steaming and as it spreads you can watch that steaming stop. Love the product. Note it works better as the weeks progress after the initial weekly application.

Natural Chemistry Cover Free appears to aid in mitigating water evaporation from swimming pools. It won't eliminate it totally but it will slow the process down a bit. The cost of the 1 gallon container from INYO is very reasonable. You'll have to determine for yourself if the added cost to your water bill for re-filling your pool is more than the cost of this product. If so, it's definitely worth it. A capful or two once a week is all it takes. I add it directly to the skimmer basket but it can be spread on the surface of the pool. If your evaporation appears excessive, you may want to do a bucket test to determine if you have a leak. Skimmer areas are a good first place to check.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great liquid solar cover
Reviewed By: Pam C. from Oxford, MI ()
We used this product last summer for the first time and now would not go back to a regular solar cover again. Using this product reduces heat loss as well as water evaporation, which saves on chlorine as well. Without the need for the regular solar cover our pool stayed far cleaner than any previous season. I would highly recommend this product.
(1 out of 5 stars) Natural Chemistry Cover Free is NOT for Arizona
Reviewed By: ()
I am located in Southern Arizona. Evaporation is a major cost here as we can lose one to one and a half inches daily. I inquired InyoPools support team for a recommendation to an alternative to solar blanket to keep from losing so much water due to evaporation. The solar blankets definitely reduce the evaporation but in turn heat the water to unusable temps. The support team recommended Natural Chemistry Cover Free. I have used it as recommended for two weeks at this point but have not realized any reduction in water loss. I am sure it is due to the extreme heat and lack of humidity here in Southern Arizona. I am not complaining about the product simply warning anyone else that it is not effective for evaporation in Arizona.
(2 out of 5 stars) Not For Indoor Pools
Reviewed By: ()
I have an indoor pool with a cartridge type filter system and tried the product for 4 weeks and saw no change in evap or temp stability. I also had the head pressure go up on my pump system and had to hose off to get the pump pressure back to normal. My conclusion was this is not for indoor pools or Cartridge Filter systems. Looks like I wasted $65.00, Allen
(5 out of 5 stars) Stops Water and Heat Loss

This product stops loss of water due to evaporation. He keeps the temperature of the water up over the cold nights. We got down to the 40's last night here in SW Florida and my pool only dropped about 3 or 4 degrees.
