Our blankets are made of 12-gauge material so they will outlast most other above-ground blankets on the market. Our Clear solar blankets are laced with air bubbles that act as an insulating layer, shielding the pool from wind, cloudy intervals, and cool nighttime temperatures. A Clear solar cover will leave a pool up to 15r` F warmer than an uncovered pool. Clear covers are U.V.-protected to hold up under the most intense sunlight. Clear blankets are not affected by pool chemicals. Clear solar blankets allow heat to fully travel through the blanket, while air bubbles further magnify that heat to reach greater depths of pool water quickly and efficiently. Clear solar covers outperform pool blankets of different colors, such as black and silver, which absorb or reflect heat from the pool water’0Dleaving it cool’0Dand prevent the blanket from properly heating up the pool water.
