16 ft. x 32 ft. 5-Year Rectangular Blue Above Ground Solar Pool Cover is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Five Year Warrantee is A Joke The cover was easy to cut and fit my pool and it did add a couple of months to the swimming season. Just as important to me here in Tucson, Arizona it did save money in evaporation costs. The air is dry and can get very hot in the summer here! However, due to the high summer temperatures and possibly the dry air (5-10 percent is normal in the winter and much of the year) the blanket started to get brittle and the bubbles started to come apart and fill the strainer cup on my equipment. I sent a one square foot sample to Polyair's headquarters in Toronto as required ($10.00 mailing cost) and my claim was denied for the following reason: "After careful observation, we found that the main reason for degradation is high amounts of chemical deposits all over the sample provided by you. Visually looking at the sample, it appears that the disinfectant being used is not maintained at a proper level, and/or the cover is not being properly cleaned and stored when not in use." The chlorine level was never above recommended levels and the blanket was never stored during the 15 months of use. Any chemical deposits on sample were lime deposits from hard water. Maybe the blanket will survive longer in Canadian conditions, but I would not recommend this product or this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pool cover The pool blanket will save a tremendous amount of evaporation in the pool, thus saving a lot on the water bill. especially during this drought period in California. I would highly recommend it. But it will normally take two people to correctly put in over the pool. let it lay over the pool for about a week and then trim to the shape of the pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has been a great experiment for this swim season We were able to raise the pool temp 16 degrees in just a couple weeks before the grandchildren arrived for a week of swimming! The cover was described as 1" thick, but certainly was not. I'm not sure this made a difference...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

We purchase one of these every 6 months, since they only last that long for us. We keep our pool chemicals at the recommended levels, but do live in California so we get plenty of sun and heat. Seems like a short lifespan for something with a 5 year warranty. The warranty claim information reads: "PLEASE NOTE: Delamination caused by improper storage or exposure to the sun of the heating blanket DOES NOT constitute a defect and therefore is NOT covered by the warranty." That's funny. It says if you use it (and therefore have it exposed to the sun) or if you don't use it (keep it in storage), either way its not covered by the warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manufacturer defect? The blanket came with all the bubbles inverted & colapsed! In process of filing warranty claim. Company in Canada - not too hopeful. If they don't send replacement, will never buy another one from them! Have used these covers for many years, but this time????

It barely floats and is very flimsy. I doubt that the thing will last one season before the straps on the reel pull through the cover. I have 6 straps on my cover reel and it is still very hard to get the cover to roll up without bunching on the first wrap, takes 2 people or a bungy cord to hold the reel handle while I manipulate the cover to be float on the reel. Will not buy again.

We're definitely quite pleased but needed to cut it down to a smaller size. I laid it out on the ground, measured and made sure everything lined up evenly and used a good pair of scissors! Piece of cake! It definitely helps insulate and keeps the water warmer and debris out. I think we'll easily get a few seasons out of it making it worth the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase to extend our swimming season The blanket arrived well packaged and in good condition. It was easy for two people to unroll and place on pool surface. It came with instructions to leave for a few days to settle, for the creases to release and possibly shrink before cutting to size. It cuts easily with a pair of sharp scissors and stays on pool surface due to surface tension. There have been several windy days and the cover stayed on the pool. It doesn't seem to have shrunk but the creases have softened a lot. We still need to trim and attach the blanket to the roller - the quality of the material is high. It is too early to comment on the durability as we have only had it a week or so but we can report that the water temperature has risen 4 degrees (at least at the surface we haven't been in the pool to swim yet) and we are happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product and great value I purchased the solar blanket online for my 7-ft square jacuzzi and picked it up at my local Home Depot store. Delivery was prompt, shipping was free and the process was easy. The quality is great and I can divide it into 8 individual covers for the usual price of 2 making this a very cost effective purchase. It rolls up into its original shipping box for easy storage of the unused piece. I should be set for Jacuzzi blankets for many years to come.

But: I saved the receipt knowning it would never last 5 years. It started falling apart a little before 2 years. At 2 years and 1 month, I can't put it in the pool as blue pieces will float all over the pool. We'll see if I have any luck with the return.
