Sol+Guard 500M Solar Pool Cover
1st Direct Pools are proud to offer you the innovative new solar bubble pool cover! After years of development and testing the humble bubble cover was reinvented with some remarkable benefits to help save pool owners money on heating and help them last longer.
The Sol+Guard Solar Pool cover has different shaped bubbles which don't have the weak points the traditional bubble had, making the cover stronger and last up to 25% longer!
More importantly it has the best solar gain properties of any bubble cover on the market - the translucent material allows UV rays allows heat to transfer to the water and help warm the pool water better than any solar bubble cover on the market!
The old design of bubble cover was flawed with weaknesses that over time would fail due to heat, chemical attack and residual heat acting on the thin points of the bubble. This is because it was not originally designed with this application in mind. GeoBubble addressed these issues by design, through uniform thickness and greater room for air expansion. This increases cover lifespan by upto 25%. Geo Bubbles main benefits:
- Smart Design - GeoBubble's unique design of two bubbles joined at the waist line with no sharp corners result in an overall thickness of 50% more than traditional bubble covers with no thin or weak points
- UV Stabilised - Resistant to the Sun's UV rays due to the material's additive, stabiliser and anti-oxidant package, dramatically increasing the lifespan of the cover.
Sol+Guard Material and why chose it? Along with the existing benfits from the Sol+Guard Cover:
- Increase pool temperature by up to 8°C
- Reduce chemical consumption by up to 40%
- Reduce energy consumption by up to 70%
- Eliminate water evaporation by 98% +
- Reduce debris contamination
- Save money
- 6 year + expected lifespan
- Reduce the carbon footprint of your pool
The innovative Sol+Guard swimming pool cover with GeoBubble technology is at the top of its class for allowing the maximum amount of solar gain. It also saves money, water and energy usage, as well as being scientifically designed to last longer. It is the combination of this products unique two ply combination, a clear top surface and a translucent tinted underside that gives the Sol+Guard swimming pool cover the ability to provide a variety of benefits.
Increase pool temperature by up to 8°C through solar energy gain - Tests carried out in collaboration with two UK Universities, showed that the more translucent a cover is the greater the penetration of solar energy into the swimming pool water. The unique Sol+Guard cover harnesses this concept allowing maximum solar gain to pass through the material resulting in the increase in pool temperature by up to 8°C.
How can this save money? - A Sol+Guard cover will save money by reducing water, heating and chemical costs. The Sol+Guard swimming pool cover can pay for itself in less than a year.
Eliminate Water Evaporation by 98% + - Water consumption, charges, and the use of a natural resource can reduce your by eliminating water evaporation by over 98%. Research carried out in collaboration with two UK Universities showed that in the UK an average sized pool of 4 x 8m the evaporation loss is approximately 32,000 litres of water per year. This could provide you with approximately 400 baths! This figure is reserved and will be considerably higher for hotter climates and windy conditions.
Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 30% - Research in collaboration with UK universities showed that by using a Sol+Guard swimming pool cover on an average sized UK pool, 4m x 8m, up to 30% could be saved in chemical consumption through eliminating evaporation. This equates to up to 5kg of chlorine!
Reduce Energy Consumption by up to 70% - Pool heating costs can be reduced as the Sol+Guard cover will eliminate evaporation and greatly reduce heat radiation. Heat retention tests carried out in collaboration with two UK Universities showed energy savings of over 50%. This applied to oil, gas, electric heater or heat pump usage. Where solar heating is used, it is possible to invest in up to half the amount of panels normally required for a pool without a cover. By using a Sol+Guard swimming pool cover on an average sized UK pool, 4m x 8m, that uses a modern heat pump, you could save up to 7000 kWh of electric every year!
Reduce Debris - Leaves, dirt, insects, bird droppings and other debris are not only unsightly in a swimming pool but also provide nutrients for algae and bacteria to feed on.When the pool is covered these contaminants will be kept out of the water, greatly improving the quality and appearance of the water, plus helping to reduce chemical consumption.
Benefits to the environment as well as saving money - A Sol+Guard cover will greatly reduce the carbon footprint of your pool by reducing the amount of energy needed to heat and filter your pool water. It also conserves water and, at the end of its life, all of our covers are 100% recyclable (Grade 4 LDPE recycling).
Warranty - The Sol+Guard cover has a 6 year pro rata warranty. Please note that the length of the warranty may vary in some countries.
