PRODUCT INFO:

Sol Guard 500 is the best available solar cover on the market. The solar cover has a clear top with tinted translucent underside giving an opaque appearance.

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.

We offer standard sizes which can be delivered on a next working day basis.

Save money by using up to 60% less pool chemicals

  • Reduce electricity usage by cutting filtration time by up to 50%
  • Save money and time when opening your pool after the winter period.

In the Gallery section, there are images of two pools that were both tested for ten days with no chemical treatment, no filtration and with simulated use. The pool shown in the 1st photo had a standard Solar cover fitted and went green very quickly due to algae growth. The 2nd photo shows a pool with the GeoBubble Energy Guard cover with no algae growth. This simple test was continued for two months and the pool remained clear of algae when the test period ended.

A more comprehensive test was done between October 2008 to April 2009 and a pool was covered with an EnergyGuard 500-micron cover and a woven mesh debris cover with NO WINTER POOL CHEMICALS used. The water was completely clear of algae after the 6-month period. You will save hours of pool preparation time by not having to filter, backwash and vacuum the pool, as well as saving money on chemicals and electricity usage.

Filtration time can be reduced by up to 50% when algae growth is inhibited by using the GeoBubble Energy Guard 500-micron pool cover. This will greatly reduce your electricity usage but filtration will still be required to remove any dirt or impurities from the pool and to circulate the water to allow for chemicals to reach all areas of the swimming pool.

The GeoBubble Energy Guard 500micron Winter & Summer Swimming Pool Covers Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 60%, Water Evaporation by 98% and Energy Consumption By 50%

You can reduce chemical usage dramatically because of inhibited algae growth, almost eliminating water evaporation and most amazingly, because 90% of chlorine consumed in an outdoor swimming pool is used because the sun destroys it, the Black cover which cuts out sunlight into the swimming pool means that chlorine usage will be so much less in future.

If You Only Want To Buy One Cover This Year That Will Last You Many Years And Can Be Used All Year Round Then The GeoBubble Energy Guard Winter & Summer Cover Is Your Only Choice.

6 year pro rata warranty.

PRODUCT INFO:

Midas 500 micron GeoBubble Swimming Pool Solar Cover is an ideal cover for the UK climate. The Midas 500 will offer the solar benefit while the gold underside provides essential heat retention.

Why chose Midas 500 over other types of Solar Cover

Ambient air temperature in the UK varies but as an example in the south of the UK May night temperatures are between 7 and 10 degrees while daytime temperatures are between 15 abd 19 degrees this avarages out at between 16 / 11 for the month. Using a good quality solar cover such as the Midas 500 will enable you to start your pool up as early as possible and reduce heating costs especially at night when heat loss will be at its highest. 

The Midas 500 is made in the UK by Plastipack, the Gold layered underside has been designed for heat retention which is more important now than ever before. Energy saving heating systems are by far the most popular type of heating now used on swimming pools but retaining as much as the heat as possible is essential in ensuring the pool is kept at the correct temperature for as long as the UK weather permits.

The Gold layer on the Midas will reflect heat back into the water retaining more heat in than other solar covers and the 500 micron means that this is a thicker cover than the standard 400 or cheaper above ground 200 micron solar covers.

Water loss is also important as during the warmer days pool water will be lost due to evaporation. The midas 500 solar cover will reduce water evaporation by 98%, this has an effect on the amount of chemicals you need to use as with less water evaporation you will reduce the amount of water needed to top the pool up. This means less chemicals will need to be added.

We are able to send out the standard size solar covers on a fast-next day service. If you require a solar cover in a size not listed, please call or email us. Normally we can have a Midas 5000 Solar Cover made within 5 working days so if your pool has a roman end or you want a fitted leading edge please contact us 01322 554 870 or email realoffice@btconnect.com for a quote.
