A Solar Blanket is a great investment for every pool owner. In fact, to fully benefit from your Hi-Tec Pool Solar Heating System, they should be used in conjunction. Primarily, in the early and later times of our swim season (late October through late March), when the nights are getting cold, a pool blanket helps to retain the heat created throughout the day. Without it, the heat your solar system created during the day, might be potentially lost overnight.
Simply put, a Solar Blanket is designed to collect heat from solar energy and transfer it to your pool water. Solar Blankets are made from a durable polymer material with thousands of tiny sealed air bubbles. They float “bubble side down” on the surface of your pool water when the pool is not in use, and allow solar energy to pass through, which is then trapped as retained heat in the pool.
