Coolguard ultra pool cover on swimming pool in florida

CoolGuard™ Ultra has exceeded my expectations in many ways

[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, because I don’t have to run the pool pump at a higher speed to facilitate the operation of my roof mounted solar water panels to provide Nocturnal cooling at night. 

The CoolGuard™ Ultra has remained like new, stiffness of the cover is a real plus, even at our high temperatures and very high U/V. With other premium covers, they start soft and pliable, which does not allow them perform as well as Ultra. I do have to say, my first impression of CoolGuard™ Ultra was that it would be too stiff, after 3 months of use, the stiffness is a real benefit. 

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.

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.”
