Soltex Australian Pool Covers

How solar blankets work

Solar Blankets are made from a film of thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool. The Solar Blanket floats on top of the water and allows the suns energy to pass through. The blanket then traps the energy as retained heat in the pool. The material is also ideal for use as thermal blankets for heated pools.

Solar Blankets are designed to retain heat. Solar energy (short wavelength) easily passes through the blanket. The heat is retained in the water, which radiates at longer wavelengths. It is restricted from readily dissipating into the atmosphere due to the special design of the blanket).

They will increase pool water temperature by 10 to 15 degrees and will reduce heating costs up to 75%. Pool water stays warmer longer, therefore extending the swimming season. Most heat loss in a pool is caused by evaporation. A solar blanket will trap the heat in and reduce evaporation by around 95% and will save up to 50% on pool chemical usage while the pool is covered. The blanket also acts as a barrier to prevent leaves and debris from entering the pool, thereby reducing maintenance time.

We’ve got you covered, clean and at the right temperature!

Unique features

  • Deep blue colour is darker than other covers and absorbs more of the suns energy. The pool water will heat 10% better than any other blanket
  • Top layer has our secret additive process for an 85% uv protection which has 100% more protection from the sun than any other cover in the world
  • In our manufacturing process we add a chlorine inhibitor to the bottom layer which is 25% thicker and has more resistance to chlorine attack
  • Super size bubbles mean more heat retention and a 13% solar gain compared to a 7% gain on other similar looking covers
  • Flat bottom bubble with a larger surface area means the solar blankets are more likely to stay on the pool in high winds and automatic pools cleaners work more efficiently under Aquadreams uv blankets
