Heat Retention Covers for Private Pools

WHY USE A HEAT RETENTION COVER?

Would you ever buy a house without a roof? A house without windows or doors? It would definitely be interesting, but surely inefficient and unhygienic. Try to imagine the heating bill and the amount of cleaning required… unbearable!

The same applies for a pool: throughout the day, water absorbs the sunlight and it warms up, providing ideal comfort for swimmers. Overnight, if the pool is not adequately covered, the accumulated heat dissipates by means of evaporation (70%), convection and radiation. Evaporation, that is by far the most common phenomenon as well as being responsible for dispersing large amounts of energy, increases the need to top water up and consequently increases the need for chemical products.

A heat retention cover also protects the pool from leaves, insects, branches, dust, etc. that inevitably contribute to increasing maintenance costs.

The use of an adequate heat retention cover, by blocking water evaporation by more than 98%:

  • Halves the costs of water heating.

  • Reduces the consumption of chemical products by 35-40%.

  • Reduces by 50% the need to top water up.

  • Reduces the time needed to filter/pump water into the pool by 50%.

  • Keeps cleaning and maintenance costs down.
