Why chose the Sol Guard 500 over other solar covers

The main reason to choose the sol guard 500 over other solar covers is the heat gain and retention. The Sol Guard 500 will add more heat than traditional solar covers and can increase pool temperature by up to 8 degrees C. With more swimming pool owners using low energy consumption heating systems it is important that the solar cover can offer as much heat gain and retention as possible, extending the season. The other important factor is water evaporation, with upto 98% reduction in evaporation, pool owners will save on the water bills and will have reduced chemical consumption as less fresh water is added to the pool. This may also help pool owners that struggle with pH balance when adding fresh water.

Longer life in a solar cover is important, GeoBubble technology used in the sol guard 500 will increase the expected life of the Cover by upto 25% through its unique shape. This Unique shape improves its endurance against the harsh swimming pool environment with Ultra Violet light and chemical attack. Geobubble SolGuard 500 comes with a 6 year pro rata warranty. When tradidtional solar covers break down at the end of their life span, the bubbles break loose and fall to the bottom of the pool, the design of the geobubble will prevent this from occurring.

Sol guard 500 geobubble comes with a 6-year warranty! So what is GeoBubble?

Made by Plastipack, the leading UK manufacturer of Solar Covers to the UK and Europe, the Geobubble design is a unique bubble shape that has been scientifically designed to increase the expected lifespan of swimming pool solar cover material by up to 25%. So confident are Plastipack in this cover they are offering an unprecedented 6 years pro rata warranty!!

Geobubble Technology: Swimming pool covers are exposed to high Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and chemical attack. Geo Bubble has been designed specifically for use in this environment to help make it resistant against these attacks. This makes Geobubble ideal for warmer countries such as Portugal and Spain. Traditional solar covers have several inherent weaknesses in their design, including thin points and high residual stress. Thin points in a bubble design are weak points, which are quickly broken down by UV and chemical attack. The degradation process is accelerated in areas of high stress, as these areas are under constant strain. These factors result in the bubble material breaking down, and ultimately, premature failure of the swimming pool cover.

Sol Guard 500 GeoBubble is unique because two bubbles are joined together by a waistline centre section, no sharp corners resulting in no thin or weak points in the design and the material contains no stress. The overall thickness of a GeoBubble is 50% more than a traditional solar cover. Solguard 500 has increased resilience against UV and chemical attack.

The sol guard 500 has a larger footprint than traditional solar covers. The large footprint acts as an insulator, retaining more heat in the swimming pool, plus helps the solar cover stick to the water so it cannot be blown off the pool.
