Questions & Answers

So, which way do the bubbles really go?

I know this question was asked before, but the two answers it got contradicted each other! Not sure whether to take the more grammatically correct one or not. (smile) Does anyone really know? Thanks.

as for littlemisy read the brocure; http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/af/affb05b3-5fa2-4927-9f3c-9c8df4224436.pdf the company admits the cover reduces the solar absorption by 5%-15%, depending on thickness of cover ordered. solar absorption is the sun hitting raw water.

How is it shipped?

I'm thinking about ordering this and picking it up in the store to avoid the high shipping cost. Does it come rolled in a long tube, or folded up in a large box?
Asked by: blc9171
Like the previous answer stated, it comes rolled in a box. It was small enough to fit in the back seat of my economy car.

WIll it cover a 36' x 16' pool?

The specifications are a little misleading: the "Dimensions" claim cover length of 36' and cover width of 18', however the "Details" identify the cover dimensions as 16' x 32'. I understand if there is margin of error to consider. Will this product cover my 36' x 16' pool?

18 ft. x 36 ft. 3-Year Rectangular Blue In-Ground Solar Pool Blanket is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is an economical solar blanket, and it worked great for the first year. However, in year two... This is an economical solar blanket, and it worked great for the first year. However, in year two, the majority of the air pockets had collapsed and the cover began to sink under the water line. As this has a limited 3 year warranty, I contacted the manufacturer. They approved the warranty at a 1/3 prorated cost of the original purchase price plus freight. This is where the problem lies. They wanted almost $70 to ship the replacement cover when their warehouse was about 45 minutes away from me. They gave me the option to pick up the cover myself, which I agreed to do. However, their warehouse is only open on weekdays making the warranty useless. I requested that they ship the replacement cover to my local Home Depot as they did in my original purchase, but they said that they could do that. So in summation, this is a good, cost-effective cover for one year with no warranty. If you are also interested in other solar blankets from this company, make sure you understand all aspects of their warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pool is getting warmer every day!! I live in southern California and despite our perfect weather my swimming pool is just too cold most of the year. I purchased this cover in April and in less then 1 week my pool temp has gone from 74 to 79. Its not even really warm outside but I also should point out the solar covers mostly warm up the surface water, so when you stick a hand or foot it it feels like bath water but when you dive in its going to be cold. This cover is the same one sold in Leslie Pool stores for over $200 for this size, I priced solar covers for a few months and HD price cant be beat if you have the item shipped to the nearest store for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Solar Pool Blanket This Solar Pool cover has heated my pool to about ~90 degrees with the ambient temp being around ~75*. I generally take the cover off on Fridays and leave it off until Tuesdays (when pool guy comes). The temp will drop to low 80's over the 4 days the cover is off but will quickly heat back up ~10+ degrees in a few days. This cover drastically reduced evaporation as well. Overall great product definitely does what it's supposed to do. I live in San Diego, CA so when there is a marine layer it won't heat the pool as quickly - obviously.
