You Don’t Always Need A Pool Heater To Keep Your Pool Warm
Heat loss on any pool, heated by any means, is primarily driven by evaporation from the surface of the pool. Upwards of 75% of heat loss is through this method. So controlling that evaporative loss is key to reducing heating cost. There are several methods of achieving these savings.
A Pool Blanket
One method is to use a solid pool blanket. A pool blanket is a heat retention device. It is automatically deployed through a series of tracks and a motor to roll the heavy-duty vinyl blanket out over the surface of the pool. These are somewhat expensive yet highly valuable devices. This will keep the heat locked into the pool while you are not using it.
A Liquid Pool Blanket
The last type of blanket available on the market is the Liquid blanket. The liquid blanket is easy to use, and is inexpensive, but it carries a lower level of effectiveness. The Liquid blanket is applied by simply pouring the liquid blanket into the pool at a specified rate per square feet surface area of the pool. Simple, easy, and inexpensive. It is non-toxic and will not have a negative effect on the pool filtration system. It works by creating a molecule thick layer on the surface of the water thus slowing down the rate of evaporation.
