Why Investing in a Quality Pool Cover is Important
A pool cover is a must for any pool owner, which is why it’s important to invest in a quality cover to help save time and money on pool maintenance.
But not all pool covers are the same. Solar Covers (also known as bubble blankets and bubble wrap covers) are primarily used to stop evaporation and maintain water temperature. Other options include winter leaf covers, non-heating solar pool covers, and thermal covers. Plus, there are also other factors to consider including the micron thickness and installation – all of which impact the efficiency and longevity of your pool cover.
What are Microns?
This is the measurement of the thickness of the pool cover material, excluding the bubble. For instance, 1/1000th = 1mm, which means a 500-micron pool cover is 0.5mm thick.
Pool covers come in a variety of micron sizes from 250 microns to 600 microns and the thickness depends on the purpose of the cover. As you would expect the higher the microns of the pool cover, the better the quality and durability.
