Pool Solar Cover

Pool Solar Cover

GeoBubble™ technology is a patented bubble design for an optimised swimming pool cover material scientifically designed to increase the expected lifespan of the material by up to 25% and provides the longest possible lifespan for your swimming pool cover, ensuring the preservation of water resources while reducing the energy and chemicals consumed to maintain your pool.

• 25%+ increase in the expected lifespan of your swimming pool cover
• Designed specifically for the harsh swimming pool environment
• Developed in collaboration with two UK universities
• Save money, time and reduce the carbon footprint of your pool
• Available in a variety of standard and high-performance materials

What makes GeoBubble™ materials unique?

  • Unique patented design of two bubbles joined together by a structural waistline centre section
  • No sharp corners that could result in thin or weak points in the design
  • No stress points due to the bubble’s smooth interconnected curves
  • 50% thicker than a traditional swimming pool bubble cover material at its thinnest point
  • Increased resilience against UV rays and chemical attack

Bubbles of the past

To understand the reasons for its development, it helps to consider the traditional bubble material used for pool covers. The traditional swimming pool bubble cover was developed from the packaging industry’s bubble-wrap material. The lightweight, floating material saw improvements in evaporation control as well as in heating when compared to an uncovered pool. This material however, was high-volume and low quality, with a short lifespan. This traditional round bubble shape had inherent weaknesses in its design, including thin points and high residual stress areas.

Evaporation Control – Our swimming pool cover materials reduce water losses through evaporation by working as a barrier between the water’s surface and the atmosphere. By simply covering the pool with the material, evaporation is reduced by over 98% resulting in the preservation of the water resources and increased temperatures within the swimming pool, saving water and preventing evaporative cooling.

Heat Retention – The unique profile of the GeoBubble™ technology air cells provide both buoyancy and an insulative air gap to control heat transfer enabling the swimming pool cover material to manage the pool environment and keep the pool and the desired temperature.

Temperature Increase – GeoBubble™ swimming pool covers help to increase pool temperature by allowing for solar gains, as well as retaining the gained heat by providing a barrier to evaporation and an insulative air gap.
