500 Micron POOL COVERS – AUSTRALIAN MADE AND OWNED
We have been manufacturing and selling Australian Made solar pool covers since 2000. Our pool covers are made from Sealed Air Cover Material which is manufactured at their factory in Faulkner VIC making it truly Australian made product.
We are the only manufacturer who welds our pool blankets across the pool. There are several reasons why we do this. The first is that the pool cover winds up onto your pool cover roller significantly better with the weld lines running parallel to the roller tube. There is simply no denying this fact, horizontal panels roll up far better than mass produced vertical panels. Secondly, due to our unique manufacturing process, the building of each blanket with horizontal panels, this enables us to create shapes. Do you have a pool with a Swim Out? Or a Beach End? Why should you buy a pool cover based on maximum length and maximum width? You should simply pay for what you need, rather than pay for all the wasted material. Our manufacturing process cuts down on this wasted material
What are the benefits of a pool cover:
How does a solar pool cover heat the water? The pool cover is a translucent colour which allows the sun’s solar energy to pass through the blanket and heat the water. The blanket acts as an insulator, via the prevention of water evaporation. Almost 95% of the pool’s temperature is lost through the surface area of the pool. As the pool cover acts like a lid, you could almost say the pool cover traps in the heat. The stronger the sun’s energy, the warmer the pool.
What about evaporation? The pool cover should be cut to fit the pool so that there is no exposed water. Ideally there should be a small lip that rises up the side of the coping wall. A properly fitted pool cover can reduce the amount of evaporation by as much as 97%. Evaporation occurs from the surface of the water and as the cover is a protective barrier on the surface level , this is how it reduces the evaporation . The two major sources of evaporation are
