Case Studies

Don’t just take our word for it…



We have found that the pool is much warmer in the mornings than it ever was before

We have found that the pool is much warmer in the mornings than it ever was before. The condensation we used to get on our walls and windows is a thing of the past, and we are paying noticeably less on our heating bills.

The swimming pool cover looks great and we are really happy with how well it is working for us.

Our new cover has been a massive improvement on our old, waterlogged foam cover.

Our new cover has been a massive improvement on our old, waterlogged foam cover. It is so much easier to take off and on, which we do multiple times a day. We have found that the pool is holding its temperature much better than before, and there is no noticeable heat loss overnight.

We have also noticed we are using up far less chlorine than previously, the clarity of the water has improved and we are dedicating a lot less time to keeping the pool clean.

The best cover we have ever had!

The Geobubble™ solar cover is by far the best cover we have ever had!

It stops water loss through evaporation, and helps keep the water warm so we can have fun in the pool all season long

[Our client is] very pleased with their new cover… and it looks great too!

Our client’s old foam cover had seen better days and was getting waterlogged and too heavy for the electric reel system. We replaced the cover with a lightweight GeoBubble™ solar cover in Dark Blue, making the cover much easier to take on and off. It’s early days yet, but the client is very pleased with their new cover so far, and it looks great too!

The temperature in the pool doesn’t drop at all

Finally got the pool done… and fitted the [Sol+Guard™] cover. Water temperature started at around 20 degrees and after the last couple of days it is now sitting at 28 degrees.

I cover the pool at night and the temperature in the pool doesn’t drop at all… so far so good, and I’m happy with it.

After using the cover the algae was dead within a week or two

Very impressed with my EnergyGuard ST pool cover. I have a natural, unheated swimming pool. Water is circulated through bio filter to keep it clean without chemicals, but clearing the algae after its winter shutdown can be a problem. (Think pea soup!) However, after using the cover the algae was dead within a week or two and vacuumed out of the pool with ease. It has even killed off the biofilm which makes the walls of natural pools quite slick, so I’m delighted, and the pool water is sparkling clear in record time.

CoolGuard™ Ultra has exceeded my expectations in many ways

UPDATE JUNE 2020:

Besides making normal maintenance when we are at home a breeze, when are away for an extended time, a month or more, it’s just as easy. Balance the pool water and install the cover, and leave without concern of water quality or excessive solar heat gain.

Spring time start up revealed clear water with just a few leaves to clear away

This year has been a dream, thanks to [my] new GeoBubble™ pool cover. Spring time start up revealed clear water with just a few leaves to clear away.

Then moving into summer the water temperature and clarity was maintained throughout. Chemical usage has been easy to control and notably less than previous years without the cover.

Despite kidney shape of the pool the roller system proved reliable after mastering a folding technique while the cover still rested on the water. So ensuring good swim temperatures for longer periods.

The water was so warm, it even gave my wife the excuse to go for a dip!!

I called [Plastipack, manufacturer of the GeoBubble™ material] to get advice regarding the right cover for my pool. The help and advice I received, couldn’t have been more helpful, and enabled me to make my choice. When we received the cover, and covered the pool, I found the quality of the material was excellent.

The pool heat pump is on much less

We have replaced our old pool cover recently with Sol+Guard™ cover which has the GeoBubble™ Technology. The new cover is really effective and looks good on the pool as well together with the new roller! We decided to go for a separate Roman end which we are very happy with and the overall performance is excellent, which means the pool heat pump is on much less as the programmed temperature(s) is maintained.

In addition the team at Plastipack were really helpful and knowledgeable when we were trying to decide which cover to select. Thank you to Joe and the team.

Finally…… new innovation and technology to enhance and improve pool use and ownership.

Fortuitously through an unexpected internet search, we discovered the GeoBubble™ Sol+Guard™ cover. It sounded like exactly what we had been hoping for. Finally…… new innovation and technology to enhance and improve pool use and ownership…

We struggled to get 25°C… but since our purchase of the Sol+Guard™ pool cover, today I have a pool at 32°C

We recently purchased an above ground temporary summer pool. We struggled to get 25°C pool temperature due to overnight temperatures, but since our purchase of the Sol+Guard™ pool cover, today I have a pool at 32°C and it stayed overnight at 28°C. The morning temperature of the pool rises quickly with the additional heat provided through solar gain getting the pool to a really great temperature.

Sol+Guard™ reduced my heating bill by 25%

“I own a swimming pool in the south-east of England and in the spring of 2010 I upgraded my cover to a Sol+Guard™ cover, which has over the summer of 2010 reduced my heating bill by 25%. The other benefit of the cover was the increase in the temperature of the pool water which I believe to be well over 80°F, and also helped extend my swimming pool season by a few weeks. The Sol+Guard™ cover definitely does what it says it will.”

I have already seen the temperature in my pool increase by 3 to 4°C

“I replaced my standard cover recently with a Sol+Guard™ pool cover with GeoBubble™ Technology bubble design; the new cover is really effective! I am very happy with the covers performance and have already seen the temperature in my pool increase by 3 to 4°C since replacing my old cover with the Sol+Guard™ material.

Now we can enjoy a swim at night

“Well the Sol+Guard™ cover is just great! Last year we used a solar system to heat up the pool but it was not working really well and was too expensive (about £11,000) so we returned back to the supplier. But the cover have really heated the pool more than what the solar system did. Even now we can now enjoy a swim at night that we couldn’t do before! Thank you so much for this efficient solution!”

A dramatic difference to the speed of heating the water

“We are really pleased with our new Sol+Guard™ cover. The cover has made a dramatic difference to both the speed of heating the water and heat retention. In addition, our underwater lighting penetrates the cover and creates a great feature at night!”

We were able to start swimming on the 10th April this year compared to the end of May last year

“Firstly I would like to say how much I appreciated the advice and assistance you gave me in choosing a pool cover that would be appropriate for the area I live in, Almeria in Spain. I think it is very prudent to take advice rather than purchasing a pool cover that may be unsuitable for my location.

I would be happy to recommend a Sol+Guard™ cover to anyone who wants to heat their pool ecologically

“I am very happy with the performance of the Sol+Guard™ product in terms of heating my pool water. The benefits of having a Sol+Guard™ cover is that at the end of May 2011 the pool water was at 31°C, which is 10°C warmer than my neighbours pool who has no cover. I would be happy to recommend a Sol+Guard™ cover to anyone who wants to heat their pool ecologically and enjoy it much longer during the year.”

Pool water was absolutely crystal clear

“As someone who has been in the pool industry for many years I am always seeing new products making great claims as to how good they are so it was some doubt in my mind that I tried the black EnergyGuard™ GeoBubble™ pool cover on my own pool. I put it on in September and did not put any winterising chemicals at all in the pool.
