most South African homeowners, after their home itself, a swimming pool
is their biggest domestic investment - and for so many it's an
investment providing a poor return in terms of fun and exercise.
Now here's your chance to join the lucky ones. A swimming pool solar
heater blanket, like our quality solar pool covers for example, extends
your swimming season by months and months and also makes round-the-clock
swimming a daily event.
Let's face it, for most of us a chilly pool is not exactly inviting,
except when the weather is at its warmest. Yet with a swimming pool
solar blanket from
Solar Panels Direct
it needn't be that way.
Our solar pool covers are a quick and easy answer. These world-class
South African made swimming pool covers are something of a marvel. Solar
pool covers work just as well on the tiniest outdoor spa as they do on a
movie-star monster pool, or a commercial/municipal installation. Putting
aside the technicalities, our solar pool covers keep the water in your
pool around six degrees warmer.
Our swimming pool covers also help retain the warmth in heated pools and
keep out most tree debris and other flying rubbish.
In spite of all these advantages, for many pool owners the biggest
attraction of solar pool covers will be the impressive savings clocked
up on pool chemicals and water loss through evaporation. It's safe to
say that whatever type of indoor or outdoor pool or spa you have, our
solar pool covers will have paid for themselves just 12 months after

drawback with first generation PVC covers is that rain
or sprinkler water can collect on top of a PVC pool
cover, forming a small pool that curious toddlers may be
tempted to play in. Our second generation PowerPlastics

these pools forming on top of the cover.
