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.

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.

Can this be used as a leaf cover as well since it covers the surface of the pool?

A  Answered on 8/27/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

No- Solar blankets float on top of the water, so once weight is added it will begin to take on water and eventually sink to from the weight.

Hi Tom, An Above Ground Pool Winter Cover with an Above Ground Pool Leaf Cover will be what I would recommend.
