Customer Questions & Answers

How many Millimeters thick is this?

Asked by: Kema
I don't know the exact thickness, but by looking at it I would guess about 15 millimeters or maybe 1/2 inch.

18 ft. 5-Year Round Blue Above Ground Solar Pool Blanket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality solar pool cover This is made with thick air bubble material. It fits a little bit bigger than the18ft wide pool which works great to help keep bugs out. Good quality. Easy to pull off with one person. It is better to fold it up once you take it off the pool so it takes up less room. It doesn't crumple into a ball well.This should be pretty durable to last a few years. Good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More Work Than I Thought... Ok, so the quality of this product is good and the value was fine. I didn't mind spending the money because (to me) it was reasonably priced. However, the product is incredibly bulky and almost impossible to place on my pool without another person. Also, my city requires safety fencing attached to the top edging of above ground pools...with that said, trying to roll out the pool cover while dealing with the attached fencing on the top of the pool made it so frustrating. I think if the sides of my pool were open (instead of with the attached fencing) it would have been MUCH easier to use this product. I try to keep the cover on the pool as much as possible and my pool temp. ranges from 74-78 degrees. I'm not sure how much the pool cover increases the overall temperature though. I do notice that the top surface of the water is MUCH warmer than the bottom while the cover is on. I try to run the filter during the sunny hours if the cover is on to try and circulate the warm water. I live in MA and have a partially shaded yard. The water is comfortable for swimming and my kids enjoy it (I like the water temp. a bit warmer though...) A couple of things to know: 1. The cover is much larger than an 18 ft. diameter and I needed to trim about 10 inches off the entire cover. This did make it a bit easier to roll on and off the pool. 2. The cover can get dirty with pollen, bugs and falling leaves. So every once in a while I needed to hose it off. The first time I hosed it off, I left the open cover to dry on my lawn for about 40 minutes and it burnt some of my grass. So beware. Overall, an OK product that would probably work better if you have a pool without an attached safety fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy and great quality Stayed on in 60 mph winds and our pool has never stayed so clean. We typically bought a cheaper one but this one is definitely worth the extra money.
