If you hadn’t already heard, using a solar cover or a solar blanket on your Kayak above ground swimming pool is one of the most cost effective ways of making your pool energy-efficient and can end up saving you big bucks in the long run.
What is the difference between a solar blanket and a solar cover? And when is the best time to use one? Here is a little background that might be helpful in purchasing or effectively using a solar blanket or cover for your swimming pool.
Solar Blankets are made from a Kayak Pools Pool Coverfilm that contains thousands of very little bubbles. The bubbles work together to retain heat in your above ground pool. A solar blanket helps to heat the pool water by trapping the energy between the blanket and the water itself.
The solar blanket dramatically cuts down on evaporation loss – the main cause of heat loss. The blanket helps reduce evaporation loss by 95%. This can save you up to 50% on pool chemical usage alone whenever the swimming pool is covered.

You can use swimming pool covers all swimming season depending on your swimming schedule. If you use your pool during the daytime, take the cover off before you get in, and re-apply the cover after you’re done.
Utilizing these two accessories can save you big money and are very easy to use.
