What is a Sol+Guard cover? A Sol+Guard Solar Pool Cover is an innovative product manufactured by Plastica using swimming pool bubble cover material produced by our sister company. The product has a unique two ply combination, a clear top surface and a translucent tinted underside. Tests carried out, in collaboration with Brighton and London Metropolitan Universities, prove that the more translucent a bubble cover is, the greater the penetration of solar energy into the pool water. This cover is at the top of its class in allowing the maximum amount of solar gain.

The Sol+Guard cover has the ability to provide a variety of benefits to the end-user. This ranges from reducing the heating and maintenance costs and the personal desire to save natural resources, to the practicalities of reducing energy and water usage.

Increase pool temperature by up to 8°C through solar energy gain

The unique two ply combination of a Sol+Guard cover allows maximum solar gain to pass through the cover increasing the pool temperature by up to 8 degrees C

Eliminate Water Evaporation by 98% +

With an Sol+Guard pool cover you will be able to eliminate water evaporation by over 98%, thus greatly reducing your water consumption and your water charges, as well as saving a vital natural resource.

Plastipack carried out research, in collaboration with the Brighton University and London Metropolitan University, which proved that the evaporation loss in the UK for an average sized pool, 4m x 8m, is approximately 32,000 litres per year. This figure is considerably higher for hotter climates.

Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 30%

A Sol+Guard cover can help reduce chemical losses by evaporation by up to 30% when it is in use. All pool chemical levels and treatment should be maintained at the manufacturers recommended level.

Reduce Energy Consumption by over 50%

A Sol+Guard cover will eliminate evaporation and greatly reduce radiation. Plastipack’s heat retention tests carried out in collaboration with the Brighton and London Metropolitan Universities, showed conclusive energy savings of over 50%. This applied to oil, gas, electric heater or heat pump usage. Where solar heating is used, it is possible to invest in up to half the amount of panels normally required for a pool without a cover.

Reduce Debris Contamination

Debris such a leaves, dirt, insects and bird droppings are not only unsightly in a pool but also provide nutrients for algae and bacteria to feed on. When the pool is covered these contaminants will be kept out of the water, greatly improving the quality and appearance of the water.

Save Money

A Sol+Guard cover will save money by reducing water, energy, cleaning and chemical costs. The Sol+Guard pool cover will pay for itself in less than a year.

25% Longer Lasting - What is GeoBubble?

Traditional solar cover material have always made us of a circular/cylindrical bubble design, but experience has begun to show that this design offers multiple weak points which can be prone to premature failure in the harsh enviroments of a swimming pool.

The new GeoBubble extrusion has specifically been created to combat the attacks of UV and pool chemicals and has converted the limitations of the traditonal bubble to great advantages.

Sharp corners which were once an area of high stress have been replaced by a smoother, more uniform shape and a thickness of material (50% thicker than standard bubble) which considerably increases the bubbles resistance to attack from the water. On the surface, improved UV additives, stabilisers and anti-oxidants have added to the covers overall durability and within the bubble a larger cavity offers more room for air expansion.

All in all, GeoBubble covers offer excellent levels of performance and durability over standard pool covers.

Warranty: 5 year pro-rata

Please read before the following important points before ordering.

Points common to all Solar Covers:

Covers are charged to the nearest square foot

Solar covers are supplied in transit bags. Whilst we do everything in our power to protect them from damage in transit, damage does sometimes occur. It is important that these bags are checked for damage before signing for delivery. Once it is signed for, the carrier will not entertain any claims for damage. It is the responsibility of the receiver to ensure that this is done.

When calculating cover prices round up to the nearest square foot

Covers come complete with a Free Solar Protector Sheet to be used when the cover is off the pool

Non-hemmed covers are rectangular to be trimmed on site

Covers over 12m should be fitted with reinforcing and a leading edge

To convert from square meters to square feet multiply the square meters size by 10.764

Shock treatment of the pool with chemicals whilst the cover is on will seriously degrade the cover and void the warranty.

Welding on solar covers can lead to a slight waving

During manufacture the heat welding process may cause slight reversion. This is acceptable throughout the swimming pool industry and will not detract from the life expectancy or performance of the cover.

5 Year Cover guarantee is void if pool temperature exceeds 29 degrees C, or SPATA standards for chemical and TDS levels are not met.
