Product Description

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 5-Year Warranty.

I have a 18 x 36 pool with walkin step will this be long enough or do I need to order the 18 x 40

A  Answered on 6/25/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello, There is either a 18x36 or a 20x40 size, but if you are measuring at an 18x40 then I would get the 20x40 to cover your whole pool.

do you have a solar blanket at 16 by 36? How heavy would it be and can use it while the pump is running?

A  Answered on 7/8/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

There is not a 16 X 36 size available. You would need to purchase an 18 X 36 and cut to fit. The weight of the blanket is approximately 38 lbs. You can absolutely use the blanket while the pump is running.

Which one would help keep the water evaporation to a minimum..??

A  Answered on 8/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The Clear and Blue Solar Blankets will offer the same level of water evaporation protection. The clear cover will allow more sun light to pass through heating the pool faster.

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.

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.

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.
