warm pool
We ordered this for our new above ground circular pool which is 22' diameter. This blanket did not come in that size, so we purchased the 24' and measured and cut to fit. We also just setup a solar panel kit, and the water temp. went up to 82 very quickly. We have had other solar blankets in blue, but read the clear will give even more heat, we are happy with this purchase.

poor quality
A large amount of the air pockets were deflated when the product arrived. I think that may have been due to how it was packaged, rolled up tightly and shipped in a plastic bag instead of a box that might have protected it. I have had solar covers for 10 years, (never used this brand) and this one was disappointing. It was flimsy and not what I expected in a 12 mil. My initial reaction was to send it back but I never would have gotten it back in that plastic bag.

So far so good

Verified purchase

Never used this brand or color before, always purchased from a local pool company due to the size I needed-24' round. I have had it for about two weeks and it is doing the job. Less dirt and debris in the water, immediately helped in heating the pool up and keeping it. It's been cloudy, cool and windy here so it greatly helps. Price was good. I do like the clear coloring vs the blue.

great option instead of a heater

Verified purchase

We recently purchased a 28'x52" round above ground swimming pool. we were reluctant about adding a heater to it due to the expense and work of it all. instead, we thought we would try this solar blanket and see if that would be sufficient. it has satisfied all our expectations. the pool water does heat up at least 10-15 degrees warmer. without it, the water temp was around 74. now, it has been as warm as 86! easy to put on and take off - just roll it up and roll it back out - can even do it alone.

Fits the pool great. I have been using this cover now for about two weeks and it has made a big difference in my water temperature. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a solar cover that works.

Solar pool cover

Verified purchase

Order arrived sooner then expected! Exactly as shown in pictures. I wouldn't say it makes the pool 10 degrees warmer but it definitely does help when the nights cool down, and keeps debris out of the pool!

Good Quality and I'm happy with my purchase

Verified purchase

I needed a new solar cover for my pool as my previous blue cover was disintegrating and becoming a complete mess. This cover said it would raise the temp several degrees. After about 2 hrs of using it, the temp had gone up about 2 degrees, which was a good start. It truly does heat all the way down, unlike my old blue cover which heated a lot about 2-3 inches on the top, but the rest of the pool was cold. I disagree with another reviewer about this being a cheap bubble wrap cover that was glued together. Its a good quality vinyl bubble blanket. Another reviewer said it did a poor job of keeping debris out. This is not intended as a debris cover. Its main purpose is to heat the water a bit, and if it keeps a few leaves and bugs out, that's a bonus. It floats on top of the water to heat it, and it does a good job. Yes, you will have the debris that's on top of the blanket drop into the water if you don't remove it before taking it off. A simple dip with the skimmer will take care of it all. And I can't speak highly enough about the awesome site to store service! I love it! Its truly a wonderful feature that US Deal Mall offers and it keeps me coming back for online purchases again and again. Thanks for a really good product and fantastic service!

Good pool cover / solar blanket

Verified purchase

Easy to put on and take off with 2 people. Increased the pool water by 2 degrees within 24 hours with highs in mid 80's and lows in mid 60's at night. It is a bit pricey for a glorified bubble wrap cover, but it does the job. The best feature is the ease of taking it on/off and it sits on top of the water nicely.

You get what you pay for!

Verified purchase

I would say that this product is basically a extra-extra thick, extra big sheet of bubble wrap. It will probably last a few seasons, then will need replaced. I'm glad I chose this one over the thinner blue version. Now I need to get a reel to get it off and on the pool!

Descent product

Verified purchase

We bought this cover just before Memorial Day and it was able to heat pool up for our party that Monday. Now our weather has gotten pretty chilly so waiting for it to warm up again so we can go swimming again. It only takes a couple days to warm up enough to get in without freezing.

Good product, bad price

Verified purchase

This pool cover/solar blanket works great but it''s nothing but heavy-duty bubble wrap hot-glued together. Great idea, one that works--it certainly keeps the pool warmer and cleaner and works better than the blue one I had previously--but paying $50 for it, that is the part where I feel cognitive dissonance. I would only grumble a little at $29.95 (for the manufacturer needs to be paid something for the good quality bubble wrap and glue) but at the higher price, it feels like I've been been taken advantage of.

1. ABSOLUTELY; YES, you may leave the blanket on while the pump's running. We do it throughout the entire summer. The plastic cover floats on top and does NOT interfere with intake or outtake valves :) ~yelpoc74

2. YES! We do it all the time. It helps hold the heat in overnight (propane heater used.) Also, it keeps most of the pesky bugs and neighbor's leaves out, when pool is NOT in use. *Our 18ft seems a a foot oversized--didn't measure, nor recall the "Description's dimensions" at the moment. But it CAN be managed by one person, but two is easier & quicker. I simply enter the pool and begin rolling the blanket as if rolling-up a large floating carpet. When I get to the opposite side, I either allow it to rest on the frame's edge supports, or roll it right out and onto the ground beside the pool. When done swimming, do the opposite (of the later for one person)--from INSIDE the pool. Happy Times!!!

1. The instructions state the cover can be cut to fit the pool. The cover lays on top of the water and should fit to the pool liner.

2. YES! Most definitely it can be cut with normal (sharp) scissors. If it were me, I'd probably lay it on the water before cutting, and with a couple of extra hands to semi-hold it in place as you begin cutting. Be careful though...don't puncture your pool!!!
