Are you considering getting a solar cover for your swimming pool but aren’t sure which one you should get? You don’t want to buy the wrong one for your swimming pool because it may be too small! In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of solar covers and how to purchase the correct solar cover.
What Are The Advantages Of Using Solar Pool Covers?
Solar covers are an increasingly popular way to heat pools and save on energy costs. Solar covers work by trapping the sun’s heat and using it to warm the water in the pool. This can help to extend the swimming season by a few weeks and also reduce the amount of time that the pool heater needs to be used. In addition, solar covers can also help to reduce evaporation from the pool, which can account for significant water loss. Solar covers are an easy and efficient way to heat pools and reduce water loss, making them an ideal choice for any pool owner.
Solar covers also, act as a shield from unwanted debris and dust. When you’re not using the pool, unwanted dust particles and other unwanted objects scaling large to small can go into your swimming pool. However, a solar cover will block out any of these new dust or unwanted objects.
How to Purchase the Correct Size Solar Cover
To purchase the correct solar cover firstly you need to measure your pool. To do this, you will need a tape measure, a notepad, and a pen. Depending on the size of the pool will depend on the outcome of the measurement. If you have top rails around your pool, you must include them in your measurement.
Swimming pools come in a range of shapes and sizes to look unique and beautiful. But how will you measure this oddly shaped pool? Use your measuring tape and measure the size of your swimming pool from one side to the other. Measure the width and length of the pool.
If you have a non-standard swimming pool of a size of around 12’x19’ oval, you will need a solar cover that’s equal to or greater than the length and width values. This includes pools that are 15’x28’ oval too. To clarify, if you have a 12’x19’ swimming pool then you will need a solar cover that is at least 12’ wide and 19’ long in length. If you have a round pool of around 25’, you will need a solar cover that is equal to or greater than the diameter.
How do you find the diameter of a circle? Find the diameter of a circle by dividing the circumference by Pi. For example, if your circumference is 24.9 inches, divide it by 3.14 which equals 7.92 inches.
