Solar / Thermal Blankets are exceptionally and innovatively designed to utilize the sun’s rays primarily for 2 functions:
to warm up the pool water straight below the cover
to work as an insulator (throughout the evening, windy times and so on).
They are readily available in numerous micron polyethylene versions with UV inhibitors as well as include warranties. These covers float on water, bubble side down as well as can be custom made for any kind of swimming pool shapes and size. These covers can be utilized for residence, institution, fitness center, industry and agriculture and various other business type swimming pools.

What is a thermal blanket for the pool?
Thermal pool blankets are a layer of insulation floating over the top of a pool. A thermal pool blanket aims to maintain the swimming pool water temperature, reducing the cost of heating the entire pool.
Think of thermal blankets like a winter coat or wall insulation. Using insulating materials and a unique GeoBubbleTM design, our thermal pool covers reduce heat loss from the pool and serve as a protective barrier, preventing dirt, debris, and other detritus from contaminating the pool water.
Thermal blankets can be used for indoor and outdoor pools. No matter your pool size, the water temperature will remain the same with a thermal blanket. In fact, bigger pools risk losing more heat and being more costly to keep warm. So, you’re likely to see greater power savings from using a thermal pool blanket.
Do pool thermal blankets work?
Yes! Thermal blankets 100% work – like all forms of insulation, they use tiny air pockets inside the thermal pool cover to reduce heat loss between the pool surface and the air. Our pool covers all come with UV inhibitors, preventing ultraviolet light from penetrating the solar blanket. UV rays can affect your cleaning chemicals, meaning you can reduce your chemical consumption.
Finally, pool blankets are a physical barrier between the pool and the outside world. The thermal blanket keeps the pool clean where dirt and debris would normally fall into your pool water. And it prevents evaporation from the water surface into the air – further reducing chemical and water usage.
Do pool covers make the pool warmer?
Yes. Our innovative, exclusive pool cover design uses EnergyGuard GeoBubbleTM technology to reduce the energy consumption needed to power the pool’s heating system. The simple design has a dark grey surface and a black underside to lock in your pool’s heat.
Moreover, the EnergyGuard GeoBubble cover limits light entry into the pool. The result is less UV rays and less photosynthesis, thereby preventing algae growth. Indeed, it’s often assumed that thermal pool covers only lock in heat. However, the benefits are much broader. With the leading-edge design, such solar blankets reduce evaporation, maximise heat retention, provide debris & algae control, and selectively transmit the warming sun’s rays through (but not UV rays).
It’s truly a remarkable invention.
Do they make a blanket that will heat your pool water?
Known as thermal pool blankets or solar blankets, such pool covers are widely available. However, most are little more than a floating foam sheet. To truly experience the greatest benefits of solar blankets, you’ll want to invest in the EnergyGuard GeoBubble thermal blanket.
Technically, our pool covers won’t “heat” your pool water. Instead, they selectively filter the sun’s rays to allow warming infrared light through but will block harmful UV rays. Moreover, the pool cover contains thousands of tiny air pockets – “GeoBubbles” – which reduce the heat loss from the pool surface. These insulating pockets mean you can reduce your energy for pool heating while keeping your pool toasty and warm all year round.
How is a thermal pool cover stored?
While you’ll want your pool cover to lie on your pool when you’re not using it, you want to have an easy storage option when it’s time to enjoy the pool.
Our pool covers can be fitted with a roll-up station for square or rectangular pools. It’s a simple roller – either automated or manual – from which the pool cover can be rolled or unrolled onto the pool’s surface. There’s also a protective cover, which protects the cover from the sun when rolled up.
For non-symmetrical shapes, pool covers cannot be stored on a roller. Nevertheless, pool covers are light and easy to roll up – meaning you can pack it away in minutes.
Does the shape of the pool matter?
No. We can create a solar blanket for your pool, no matter the shape. Whether your pool is a typical rectangular shape or it has a rounded edge, our pool covers are made to measure. You can still experience all the incredible benefits of a new solar blanket, no matter your pool’s shape.
However, non-symmetrical pools cannot be fitted with a roll-up station – as the pool cover is likely to get caught when being put away. In such circumstances, we’ll discuss your best options.
Is a thermal pool blanket a safety cover?
No. The primary benefit of a solar blanket is to reduce heat loss from the pool. It does not act as a safety cover, preventing people from drowning. For example, children or pets cannot walk on the pool blanket without falling in.
We do also sell safety covers – essential when there’s a risk to young people or pets. Our pet and child safety covers are supported on all sides to act as a protective barrier.
What’s included in a thermal pool cover installation?
Our thermal blankets include the blanket alone. However, you can also add:
- The roll-up station (manual or automatic)
- The protective cover (for when the pool cover is rolled up)
- The leading edge (makes it easier to pull in and out of the pool)
- Wind protection tools
Does it matter if my pool is indoor or outdoor?
You’ll get the same energy-saving benefits for outdoor pools as you’ll get for indoor pools. The only difference is that for outdoor pools, the pool cover also serves as a protective barrier against dust and debris dirtying the pool water – not a problem for indoor pools. You can, however, expect a 7-degree increase in pool temperatures either way.
Whether you’re using the pool cover indoors or outdoors, always remove the cover when adding chemicals.
