Don’t just take our word for it…
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. Because of the weather that we’ve been having recently, August 2020, the cover came into its own within a day or so. During one of the hotter days, the water was hot, so the pool temperature had increased to about 40+ deg C. So bath warm. Previous hot days with our old cover only increased the temperature to about 17-18 deg C.

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 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.
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.
The heat pump now cycles whereas previously it had been on 24/7 previously and the kids love the increased pool temperature and use it more than ever. The small investment for the increased use and pleasure that we are getting, plus reduced electrical cost, all adds to the right choice of cover!
The product is incredibly well made and we would highly recommend it.
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.
[CoolGuard™ Ultra] does an amazing job of rejecting U/V, which controls heat gain to keep the water temperature within limits.
As you can see in the included Temperature Chart, with full sun and temperature peaks well in excess of 110F (43°C) for weeks at a time, the water temp never got to 95F (35°C), which is the setting of my Nocturnal cooling, which greatly reduces my electrical cost…
The CoolGuard™ Ultra has eliminated any worry of leaving my pool unattended for a month or more without any attention and I am able to relax at time away from home. I am confident CoolGuard™ Ultra will be a long lasting performer even in our less than friendly desert climate. Frost at times in the winter and 120F (49°C) + during the summer.
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… With the Sol+Guard™ cover, we achieved water temperatures we had never previously enjoyed… Because of the Sol+Guard™ cover, we are able to extend our normally very short swim season much longer and enjoy the health and wellness benefits of using our pool. The Sol+Guard™ cover has weathered many snow and cold events and facilitated use of our pool due to its superior quality and novel design… Prior to the Sol+Guard™ cover, our heater would increase water temperature approximately one degree an hour. With the Sol+Guard™ cover, we achieved faster and higher temperature increases than previously experienced. The product and the company are innovative and very customer service oriented. We highly recommend the Sol+Guard™ cover.
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.
The GeoBubble™ design seems much more durable and thicker than my old cover and I have high hopes for it lasting longer than my traditional cover on my salt chlorinated pool. The Sol+Guard™ soft blue tint looks elegant on the water and makes it hard to spot any residue from the water or dirt that may rest on the top of the cover.”
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.
The Sol+Guard™ cover has proved to be a huge success, raising my pool temperature by at least 8 degrees above the pool temperature in April/May of the previous two years, 2008/2009. There is a minimal temperature loss overnight as it can get quite cold in the mountains where my house is located.
In June, the pool water is too hot for me but it will suit my wife and grandchildren very well.
With the Sol+Guard™ cover on our pool we were able to start swimming on the 10th April this year compared to the end of May last year. Whilst I cannot say how long in the autumn months we will be using the pool I think it would be fair to say that our swimming season will be extended by two months either side.”
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.”
After using the cover the algae was dead within a week or two
Very impressed with my Eneryguard 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.
It’s early days for assessing heating, but the pool temperature has risen about 6 degrees in a week, now the sun has come back, so I have high hopes.
Aesthetically, the dark blue colour actually blends in very well and is far less noticeable than I thought, even in a natural setting with pool vegetation.
In summary, an excellent product. Controls algae in the most challenging of circumstances!
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. When I drew the cover back in May I was delighted and, I have to admit, quite surprised to see that the pool water was absolutely crystal clear. Just as I had left it 7 months ago. All the pool needed was one visit from my pool cleaner and it was ready to swim in. I am highly delighted with the algae restricting performance of the EnergyGuard™ cover, not only did it give me a crystal clear pool it also saved me spending money on winterising chemicals. For the first time in 20 years I did not have to do any Spring clean up in my pool.”
