What Is The Best Choice Solar Cover For Your Pool In 2023?
Having the best option Solar Cover for your pool will make a huge difference to your running costs in 2023.
Whether you have a 40ft x 20ft inground pool, a 24ft x 12ft above ground permanent pool or a 12ft Round Intex Summer only Pool, getting the Solar Cover best suited for your pool will reduce your heating bills, dramatically.
The basic principle is the higher the micron of the solar cover, the more effective it will be in reducing heat loss. But, as you could imagine, heat gain is affected by the solar cover properties, so not all Solar Covers have the same heat output.
Normally, the Best Solar Cover for Outdoor Pools, heated using a Heat Pump, or Electric Heater is the Geobubble Sol+Guard 500 Solar Cover. Apart from excellent heat retention properties, this cover has additional properties that increase the heat gained from direct sunlight, more than any other solar cover. Call us on 01322 554 870 to discuss whether this is the best choice for you.
For Indoor Pools, heated using Gas or Heat Pump, we would initially look at the Midas Jade/Gold 500 micron Solar Cover. This is because it has the top rate of Heat Retention as well as the Gold layer reflecting heat back into the pool. The Solar gain is not as good as some other covers, but on indoor pools this is not the main concern.

Some pool owners may not be so concerned with heat gain, but have issues with continuous Algae Bloom. If this is the case, then we would recommend the Black/Grey 500 micron Solar Cover, which cuts out direct sunlight into the pool, stopping the growth of Algae, dead in its tracks.
