How long does the solar pill last?

A  Answered on 12/6/2009 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The AP73 solar pill will treat a 12,000 gallon pool for one month. Replace the solar pill when necessary to maintain your desired water temperature.

Can I use 2 of these in a 25,000 gallon pool?

A  Answered on 2/17/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Although 2 of these solar pills would be adequate, I would recommend using 3. All pools will experience splash out and evaporation. When you add water to the pool you will be diluting the chemicals inside of the solar pill.

Hello Mario.  The Natural Chemistry product, Cover Free, provides similar heat loss protection and is available in 32oz, and 1 gal container sizes.    The product has a dosage of 4 oz per 667sq ft of surface area.  The surface area of your pool is 112 sq ft.  Roughly 1 oz of product per week will provide protection against evaporation and heat loss.  Natural Chemistry COVER FREE 32 Oz     Natural Chemistry COVER FREE 1 Gallon

    Will one pill a month do the same as the liquid that way I can have less maintenance with the pool? Thank you, again for your suggestions and help also can I buy this in a whole bottle for a cheaper price than 1 pill at a time? Thank you again, Mario

      The Cover Free product dosage can be measured at 4oz per 20,000 gallons of water once per week. It is the better product of the two. We were not provided enough information about the width of the pool to calculate the total gallons. If the pool is 20K Gallons, you will have 8 weeks of use of the 32oz Cover Free Vs the SolarPill A/G Pool (Up to 12,000 Gal) - AP73 at 4-weeks.
