Solar pool covers have one primary purpose; to keep your pool water warmer so you can swim longer. They do this by creating an insulating barrier between the surface of your pool water and the surrounding air.
Solar covers are often used together with a swimming pool heater. In addition to generating some heat during the day, the solar cover helps to retain the heat from the sun and the heat generated by the pool heater during the cooler night hours. By preserving the generated heat, a solar cover saves you money. You don't have to heat that water again.

There are different types of solar pool covers and each one works a bit differently. Let's explore some of the differences to help you decide which one is right for your pool.
Solar blankets are like bubble wrap for your pool. They consist of two sheets of vinyl separated by a bubble layer that creates an air pocket between the atmosphere and your pool. This layer of "dead air" serves as insulation to keep heat, chemicals and water in your pool. So a solar blanket will prevent evaporation of water and chemicals while it preserves heat.
A clear solar cover is the most effective at capturing the sun's heat and transferring it to the water to actually raise water temperature. Dark or silver (reflective) covers do not transfer heat as well. Rather, they absorb the heat (dark) or bounce it back into the atmosphere (reflective).
