Solar Pool Cover
Energy Saving Solar Gain Swimming Pool Covers are manufactured in the UK and are made from superior grade 400 and 500 micron Sol+Guard polyethylene material which includes a UV inhibitor.


  • Increase pool temperature by up to 8°C through solar energy gain
    The unique two ply combination of a Sol+Guard cover allows maximum solar gain to pass through the cover increasing the pool temperature by up to 8° C.

  • Eliminate Water Evaporation by 98% +
    With a Sol+Guard pool cover you will be able to eliminate water evaporation by over 98%, thus greatly reducing your water consumption and your water charges, as well as saving a vital natural resource.

  • Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 30%
    A Sol+Guard cover can help reduce chemical losses by evaporation by up to 30% when it is in use. All pool chemical levels and treatment should be maintained at the manufacturers recommended levels.

  • Reduce Energy Consumption by over 50%
    A Sol+Guard cover will eliminate evaporation and greatly reduce radiation. Plastipack’s heat retention tests carried out in collaboration with the Brighton and London Metropolitan Universities, showed conclusive energy savings of over 50%. This applied to oil, gas, electric heater or heat pump usage. Where solar heating is used, it is possible to invest in half the amount of panels.

  • Reduce Debris Contamination
    Debris such a leaves, dirt, insects and bird droppings are not only unsightly in a pool but also provide nutrients for algae and bacteria to feed on. When the pool is covered these contaminants will be kept out of the water, greatly improving the quality and appearance of the water.

  • Save Money
    A Sol+Guard cover will save money by reducing water, energy, cleaning and chemical costs. The Sol+Guard pool cover will pay for itself in less than a year.

  • Warranty
