About This Product

The Deluxe 5-Year Rectangular Blue/Silver Solar Cover Pool Blanket warms up your pool water by up to 12°. Made of polyethylene material, this solar cover floats bubble side down on the surface of your pool water when the pool is not in use, allowing solar energy to pass through and trap it as retained heat in the pool. This cover is made of Heavy Duty 8 mil material that helps raise the water temperature by absorbing sunlight during the day and retaining the heat at night, thereby extending the pool season. Savings come from a reduction in water evaporation decreasing chemical consumption. Material is highly resistant to ultraviolet rays which inhibits deterioration. 5-year warranty.

Answer This Question

A:  Yes, you can cut it.  It was a bit too long for my pool, so we cut about a foot off the length. Also cut some places to fit around the ladder.

    Absolute Garbage
    Cover lasted less than a year. At six months the blue layer started flaking, two months later and the silver layer started tearing. When I contacted the manufacturer to exercise the 5-year warranty, I was told I shouldn’t have used a “solar” cover during the day because UV will damage it. What kind of solar cover shouldn’t be used during the day? I was also told that I would be responsible for the $120 shipping cost, which is almost as much as I paid for the cover. An absolute joke.

      It lasted for 1 year only
      Unfortunately, we need to buy a new one just after a year. It cracked and very messy.

        This cover has fallen apart after one season. I have never had a cover fall apart after one season of use . Needless to say I will never buy this brand again. Home Depot should drop this brand before they loose any more customers.

          Worst cover ever
          In over 40 yrs this is the first solar cover to fall apart after one season. The bubbles are usually what goes first but this one has the top layer falling apart and not suitable for solar cover reels as material tears very easily. I bought this thinking made in USA would mean a longer lasting cover, total garbage!

              So far it ia working great. I will be interested to see how well it holds up at the end of the season..
