Our solar blankets are made to give you the maximum heating and insulation properties, combined with long life.

What is the difference between the clear and the blue solar blanket?

A  Answered on 3/8/2007 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

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.

Do these covers fit odd shaped pools? mine is shaped similar to a figure 8. If not, what type would?

Hi Karen, The Solar Blanket are designed to be cut to the shape of your pool. You can use our How To Use A Solar Pool Cover for further instructions.

Regarding the clear heavy duty blanket, what is the difficulty of only one person handling it. What is the difficulty of getting it out of the pool?

A  Answered on 5/27/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jim. It will be very difficult for one person to handle removing and putting on this cover on a pool.

Needed Solar Blanket for In-ground Pool

Written on 12/22/2018 by Guest

Because there is no screening in this area a solar blanket for an inground pool will have many functions. One is it will keep some of the dirt and leaves out, also it will help maintain the water temperature and evaporation.
