Product Description


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?

A  Answered on 6/25/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Are the edges on the custom solar blankets finished in any way?

A  Answered on 3/26/2007 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

No, the manufacturer does not finish or heat seal the edges on custom sized solar blankets.

Does the solar cover come with an overlap like a winter cover does?

A  Answered on 1/30/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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?

A  Answered on 8/5/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

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.

A  Answered on 10/3/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.
