    8mil Economy Pool Cover, Blue-Aluminum SpaceAge with Round Bubbles
    Pool Covers for swimming pools may be ordered in any of the six standard pool dimension sizes offered above - and easily trimmed for an exact fit of any dimension required, length or width. An average cover installation requires less than an hour. 
    For custom sizes please contact us

    Easy to CutNote: All pool cover installations are do-it-yourself friendly; plastic material trims effortlessly and quickly with household scissors. Step-by-step instructions illustrate how to simply stretch cover onto surface of pool and trim around edge using side of pool as a template. Re-trim for precise fit if necessary. [NOTICE: Pool covers are not made to the exact dimensions shown; covers are hand seamed and pre-cut at the factory and may be slightly oversized - All Standard and Custom sized pool covers must be trimmed to fit the exact measurement of your pool.]

    Principles of Operation:
    • The straightforward rationale supporting the use of solar
    pool covers is based on raising the pool water temperature by absorbing sunlight during the day - and then retaining that heat at night, plus preserving the heat generated by a solar system, heat pump, or gas heater. Additional savings are gained by a variety
    of other incentives listed below. 

    Easy to use High-performance prime resin polyethylene effectively captures the sun’s heat as it prisms through the specially designed raised circular air pockets within the laminated sheets of material, resulting in higher transmissivity – and generating maximum heat penetration into the pool water.

    •The Blue Aluminum Space Age solar cover provides a technologically advanced design that collects, and then multiplies heat. Initially it performs in a similar fashion as a traditionally designed cover. Then the specialized bonded layer of the Aluminum Heat Shield undercoating works to reflect the sun’s rays downward as they bounce up off the bottom of the pool, trapping the collected heat and returning it back into the water below – creating an upward spiral of stored pool heat.

    Blue-Aluminum SpaceAge Round Bubble
    SpaceAge design features
    Notable 14.6 percent increase in heat retention over traditional bubble design generates a significant yearly energy saving on larger pools, especially in cooler climates, or with pools located near heat evaporating sources of constant wind, i.e.; any site within several miles of an ocean or lake’s coastal shorelines.

    • Upgrading to the Diamond Bubble Cover Option effectively boosts the overall performance of the cover. Decreasing the space between the cells and increasing the air space within each cell with a more efficient diamond shaped bubble design results in dramatic increases in the insulating and heat generating effectiveness by up to 23 percent!
