CLEAR POOL SOLAR BLANKETS
PREMIUM CLEAR SOLAR BLANKET HEATS YOUR POOL FASTER THAN BLACK OR SILVER!
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-mil 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.

What is the benefit of the clear solar blanket over the blue one?
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.
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.
I have been using the blue cover for years and if the clear is better and thicker and last longer why is it cheaper?
Bruno, The clear solar blanket is thicker than the blue version and also allows the sun to pass through the blanket which helps heat the water better.
(5 out of 5 stars) Perfect solar cover!

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.

Pros: stays on pool, fits good,price was reasonable, ships extremly fast
Cons: non so far
Product arrived very fast. It was just as described. Our regular pool cover had already blown off our pool several times, no matter how we tied it down. Even though this is not exactly a cover, it is working great for us. It stays on top of the water and seems to navigate to the edges. It works great. I can't really say if it's gonna heat the pool. It's to new yet, but I don't see any reason, why it wouldn't. I love it.

Pros: Easy to use, did heat the water as advertised
Was easy to put on the pool. Kept pool cleaner in between cleanings so less skimming and more swimming. The water felt warmer, I didn't have a thermometer to check it this season, but I'm betting at least 5-10 degrees warmer.
(4 out of 5 stars) Nice solar cover

Pros: Heats pool very quickly
Cons: Oversized, required a good deal of cutting
This item came very quickly. It is a nice thickness, heated pool quickly. Only drawback is it is oversized and had to be cut down a good deal. I realize most solar covers are oversized, which I do not understand. If you order a 15' solar cover, it should fit a 15' pool, not hang over the edges 2 feet. But it is what it is. Overall, like this cover.
