You are in: Solar Heating

Heating your pool can be rather expensive. Doesn’t it make sense then to do whatever you can to retain the heat your heating system has generated for your pool? Something to think about then would be pool cover. A pool cover is one of the most cost effective ways to keep the heat in, stop evaporation and reduce chemical loss thru evaporation. Pool covers don’t just save you money in terms of heating cost, they also  cut down on costs related to:

  • Cleaning Expense – you won’t have to run your cleaning system as often
  • Water Expense – you won’t have to keep adding water back in the pool because of evaporation
  • Chemical Expense – you can reduce the amount of chemicals your pool uses by as much as 35 – 60% due to evaporation

When you think about the fact that as much as 70% of heat is lost from evaporation, covering your pool when you aren’t using is the single most effective means of reducing pool heating costs. Even though pool covers aren’t quite as much a necessity for indoor pools as they are for an outdoor pool, they still are a big help with reducing heating costs. The condensation that is evident where an indoor pool is located is an indication of what, you guessed it…evaporation.  According to the website www.energysavers.gov, "Evaporating water requires tremendous amounts of energy.  It only takes 1 BTU (British Thermal Unit) to raise 1 pound of water 1 degree but each pound of 80 F water that evaporates takes a whopping 1,048 Btu of heat out of a pool".  Don’t throw your money away, get a pool cover.
