Case Studies

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.

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.”
