Our solar blankets are made to give you the maximum heating and insulation properties, combined with long life. Durable 12-mil blankets are loaded with thermal bubbles that retain heat at night and on cloudy cool days. Our transparent blue color helps insure that the sun's heating rays are reaching your pool water. Your pool will be up to 15°F warmer than an uncovered pool. All our blankets are U.V.-protected so they last under the most intense sunlight. They are backed by a 10-Year Warranty.

What is the difference between the clear and the blue solar blanket?
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.
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.
Do these covers fit odd shaped pools? mine is shaped similar to a figure 8.
If not, what type would?
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?
Hi, Jim. It will be very difficult for one person to handle removing and putting on this cover on a pool.

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.
(5 out of 5 stars) Nice color, sturdy to allow easy pool covering, helps with preventing evaporation.

Great replacement for aging solar blanket. We don't use it for solar heating, but to prevent evaporation in an indoor pool. Easy to use and hook up to existing spool. I recommend getting replacement Tube and Blanket Fastening Kit for your spool. Ours took 6381-068, and worked great.

Pros: Good quality
Cons: packaging and shipping extremely poor
Increased pool temperature by 10 degrees. We live at 3,000 feet and keeping the water at 85 degrees is great. The blanket also reduces evaporation.
