The Suncap 500 micron transparent swimming pool material transmits 80% of the sun’s energy in the visual and IR spectrum through the material to heat the water and basin of the swimming pool. Tests conducted in the UK show a temperature increase of up to 6˚C. Testimonials from hotter climates estimate an increase of up to 8˚C above the ambient pool temperature, reducing the heating demand by up to 70%.
The Suncap swimming pool cover material is a sustainable solution to reducing the running costs and the carbon foot print of the swimming pool when in use, representing an eco-friendly solution by providing solar gain, evaporation control and heat retention.
The GeoBubble design has a much larger surface area than most traditional bubble materials to allow for expansion of air within the bubble shape. The stiff waistline section ensures the bubble is strong enough to hold expanding air and will not stretch or burst under increased pressure. The large footprint also acts as an insulator, so the heat generated is also retained in the pool water. Furthermore, it helps the cover stick to or grip the water so it cannot be blown off the pool or lift in high winds, something that can lead to abrasive damage to the cover.
