Solar Pool Blankets are the most popular type of pool covers used in South East Queensland. Sometimes known as bubble pool blankets this style of blanket floats on top of the water to make direct contact with the pool water below. They work by transferring the energy from the sun kinetically to the pool water by heating up the air pockets formed inside the bubble of the blanket. Solar pool blankets come in different thicknesses (microns), colours and bubble shapes to help improve the transition of heat as well as increase the lifespan of the product.
