For pool owners in colder climates, it’ll soon be time to put the pool cover on and close it up for fall and winter. However, the swimming pool season doesn’t have to be over just yet.
If you aren’t ready to let go of your swimming pool, here are some products that’ll keep your pool warm during the cooler fall months:
1. Solar Blanket
A solar blanket functions as a pool cover that heats up pool water with the sun’s rays. At night, the solar blanket retains the warmth and prevents it from escaping. Solar covers also reduce evaporation, which allows for the pool to not lose water as quickly. The downsides of solar blankets are that they can be difficult to put on and take off pools and require room for storage when they aren’t in use.
2. Solar Rings
Solar rings work similarly to a solar blanket. You can buy as many solar rings as needed to cover the entirety of the pool and they attach to each other with small magnets. Compared to the solar blanket, the solar rings are easier to put in the pool, take out and store. The only complaint with solar rings, and most solar pool heating products, is they can’t heat the pool while people are swimming in the water.
3. Liquid Solar Covers
A liquid solar cover is a sustainable, solar-powered pool heating option that lets you swim while it heats the pool. This product is proven safe to swim with and doesn’t take much of the liquid to do the job. The liquid solar covers sit at the top of a pool’s surface and operates the same as a physical solar cover does. The only downside of liquid solar pool covers is that they are only a temporary option.
4. Gas Heaters
Gas heaters are a great option for those who are willing to spend more money to keep their pool as warm. Gas heaters can turn on and off and heat your pool quickly, even while people are swimming. However, these heaters can be expensive to buy and come with high energy costs. If this is the option you want to go for, make sure you look into gas heaters that are as sustainable and energy-efficient as possible.
Each of these products are great pool heating solutions that’ll allow you to swim warm and comfortably throughout the chilly fall season.
