Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Warms Up The Pool Quickly! We are in Arizona and have been using this cover since mid March. It quickly brought the temperature up 8 degrees and made the pool usable within 2 weeks (even though the air temp was in the 80's). I do not believe it saves on chemical costs though, as the higher temperature of the water will cause algae growth which means you will use more chlorine and algaecide. The material is thick and heavy duty and stays put even in moderate winds. April 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light and flexible This solar heater was very light to carry and was flexible and yielding to the pool. Trimming was easy and the pool is getting warmer as we speak. May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solar cover solar cover works great. cost was resonable keeping pool at about 82 and higher through the past cool nights. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good keeps the pool heated The pool cover keeps the pool water warm even when the temp drops at night. It is not heavy to put on it is a lighter feeling than I thought it would be. August 5, 2014
