- Ground Solar Covers
An above ground solar cover is normally used in the early spring and fall with a pool heater. A solar cover is like "bubble wrap" for your pool. It generally consists of two layers of vinyl separated by pockets of air.
- Mesh Pool Covers
Mesh covers are very popular covers. They are made from green or black fine mesh and are secured to the pool by water bags or other weights, clips or a wrap. These covers are specifically designed to keep leaves and other debris out of your pool.
During the day a pool cover may raise the water temperature a few degrees, but the real benefit comes at night when the air layer of cover acts as insulation to keep in the heat that was generated during the day.
