The idea is simple. Above Ground Pool Solar Covers Catch the power coming to from the sun and keep it there…
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Let’s first speak about what is the same for above and in ground pools: The blankets themselves.
Swimming Pool Solar Blankets
As always, the devil is in the details. Firstly, the sun over time wears out almost all materials. It is so powerful that the materials decompose. Ever watched a picture in plain sunlight over time?
So by the way you should be careful with your displays like LCD and on your ipod/iphone. Do not expose them to sunlight.
But modern technology has come up with materials which are able to use the sunlight without being deconstructed within a year.
For example polyethylene – a plastic – is a heavy-duty material able to capture the sun’s power and funnel it into your pool.
So polyethylene is the material of choice for pool covers or sheets.
All you need to know is the size and form of your pool. Then you should find a dealer who offers you as many sizes/forms as possible.
I believe a dealer called poolcenter.com has the biggest assortment I found and ships internationally.
There you find all the sizes and shapes, so that no cutting is needed.
I am sure your size is among them. If not, give Rob a call. And please salute him from Daniel, thank you…
So now you have your cover. But what about your above ground Pool?
You are missing a storage special to above ground pools.

To store and protect the durable but not indestructible polyethylene you can check out the Above Ground Solar Blanket Reels at poolcenter.com.
With these tools you should already be able to save a lot of money on your pool heating and cleaning costs.
