Freaking fantabulous!! Love this cover for my 12' hard wall pool. When u first got it, I was skeptical but honestly we've gotten like a foot of rain and this cover has still come through with the proper chemicals in the pool that is. I'm super satisfied bottom line. Pic is without cover just to get an idea... (this mama is in bed already )

This cover is too light, very time the wind blows the cover is on the ground. We had the thicker one last year and I decided that I would purchase the thinner one this time. I thought that for the price and durability we might as well go with this one. Big mistake!

Perfect!

This exceeded my expectations. We bought an intex 12 x 20 metal frame pool. I went with this pool cover since it had way better reviews than the intex one. I noticed some comments about it blowing off the pool to varying degrees but I have had no problem with that, and there's currently 17 mph winds and this cover is holding down strong. Bubbles face down and is doing great keeping the pool warm and most importantly keep debris out. I highly recommend, especially for the fair price.

Way better than expected!

Verified purchase

Great quality solar cover. It was thicker than expected (in a good way) and feels very sturdy. We have been using it for several weeks now and are so happy with this purchase. I was skeptical how well it would raise the temperature, but it really works! It has raised the pool by 2 degrees on average. Plus it's great for keeping leaves and bugs out overnight. I plan on storing this in the garage over winter to try and get more than a few seasons out of it, but even it only lasts a couple years it is worth the money. Will buy again when needed.

15' Round Solar Blanket

Verified purchase

This is a great, reasonably priced solar blanket. On sunny days it heats the pool and on over cast days it helps to keep the water warm. I find I am getting less chemical burn off and water evaporation. It is larger than a 15' round pool and I did trim it down to size with household sissors. This looks neater and works better. When you remove it do not leave it on your lawn as it can burn your grass on a sunny day. Over all it was a good investment and with proper care should last me for years.

Solar Blanket easy for one person to use.

Verified purchase

We have only been using our solar blanket a few days but with a noticeable temperature increase, especially the top few inches. I am going to try to circulate it more during the day. I especially like the fact that it is light and easy enough for one person to put on pool.

Perfect Temperature

Verified purchase

Before I bought this product every time we went swimming, regardless of the weather, the water would be freezing cold. The icy temperature would make it too uncomfortable to swim for long. I found this product online and decided to try it and don't regret my decision at all. You just have to leave it on the water until you are ready to swim and the water's temperature is ideal each and every time. I absolutely love this product! Even my husband gets in right away instead of taking forever just inching himself in to get use to the temperature. If you want to be comfortable when you swim and enjoy yourself get this product. It is also so simple to remove and place back. Just remember that this cover is meant to warm the water not keep it clean from debris. That's the only problem, I can't put anything else to keep the water covered from dirt or debris.

It's not too bad

Verified purchase

This solar cover gets the job done. It's not going to last forever but I believe if it is taken care of and not handled too roughly, it should last a couple of years. It brought our pool up almost 20 degrees in about 4 days that weren't overly hot days.

Light- heats from 5-10 degrees

Verified purchase

This is somewhere between bubble wrap and vinyl- it does the job- dependent on weather. It Is a bit too big for the easy side 18 x 48 as the diameter of the top of that pool is really more like a 16 or 17. But its bettis a bit too big for the easy side 18 x 48 as the diameter of the top of that pool is really more like a 16 or 17. But its better that its bigger than smaller and it increases the degrees by about 5 to 10° dependent upon the heat of the day. I dont regret the purchase- it was about 1/2 the price of the Intex one- though the Intex is more heavy duty, so not sure if it would provide more heating capacity. I do recommend this product.

Caused algae :(

Verified purchase

We loved this solar cover at 1st...it fit our 18' round inflatable ring top intex pool perfectly. However after a few days, we noticed that algae started growing, whereas all summer we had no problems...just a nice crystal clear pool to enjoy. The summer hasn't been the hottest this year, so we bought the cover hoping it would warm the pool so our son and infant daughter could enjoy it without it being dangerously cold. Anyway, this didn't warm our pool up as other reviewers stated...maybe due to our cooler weather this year in MI. The only change we noticed was that we now have a major problem with algae and had to buy an algaecide treatment. Hoping that will take care of it. Pretty disappointed about the whole thing. :(

10. No drawstring. You lay it on the pool and cut to fit on the inside of the pool, which you should only have to cut the corners off. Evidently, there is some kind of suction that way, because it says that it will be secure in weather.

11. It doesn't have a drawstring. It is possible it could blow off in high wind- you just have to watch it.

6. The temp depends on the amount of sun the pool gets. Ours (during July 2013) raised the temp 9 degrees over 6 days. But, on cooler/less sunny days it doesn't seem to hold heat in.

7. I put mine on early in the morning and take it off in the afternoon, and mine felt like bathwater the other day. That will vary from day to day depending on sunny or cloudy days.

8. It depends on the air temperature- and quite a bit on how much direct sun it receives. It does make a big difference over just a standard vinyl cover. I've not used a thermometer to measure the difference though.

9. It floats on the water, so I would think it would work on any pool.
