3 Ways A Solar Blanket Will Save You Money
If you love to come home to a warm pool at the end of a long day and you don’t want to spend a lot of money on it, then a solar blanket is your perfect solution. The insulating bubble-lined layer of a solar blanket captures the energy of the sun and transfers it to your pool water, ensuring that it stays at the ideal temperature. Here are the 3 ways that a solar blanket can help you save money:
1. Increase Water Temperature
Solar blankets act like a magnifying glass over your pool, amplifying the sun’s warming effects. Solar blankets are made with small air bubbles. These bubbles heat up from the sun and transfer the heat to the water in your pool. They can elevate the temperature of your pool by about 10°C.
By using the solar blanket to help heat your pool, you won’t have to use your heater as often, and this will save you money on your energy bill.
2. Reduce Heat & Water Evaporation
Solar blankets help to reduce heat and water loss from your pool. By laying the solar blanket on top of the water, the heat that the pool absorbs, while the cover is on, will stay in your pool instead of evaporating. By using a solar blanket you can save around 40% of the water normally lost through evaporation.
3. Reduces Need for Water Replacement & Chemicals
By using the solar blanket to save water by preventing evaporation, you will decrease how often you’ll need to fill your pool or buy additional chemicals each time you need to treat the freshwater. Pool chemicals can also be lost through evaporation or diluted when you add water.
Solar blankets can be adjusted to fit any shape or size of pool. If you would like to invest in a solar blanket for your pool or have any questions, contact the team at Cannonball Pools.
