Bubble covers may seem strange at first appearance, but they are the latest in effective pool covers and worth investing in. Solar bubble covers are the best way to keep your pool warm and clear from debris. In Belmont, the weather can change as a result of being so close to the San Francisco Bay area, so you want to have a reliable pool cover to protect your investment.
Bubble Covers in Belmont, CA
Solar bubble covers work by trapping the sun’s heat in tiny bubbles and this stored heat is then transferred to the water. The bubbles should always be face down to ensure heat is transferred efficiently. The bubbles also help to trap heat from the pool that collects during the day, keeping the water warm on even the coldest days. This also saves you from having to get a water heater. Many people mistakenly install the covers with the bubbles facing up, thinking they need to face the sun. While they will still trap and transfer heat in this position, it may take longer. Directly facing the sun could also result in damage to the bubbles. If they overheat, they are not able to transfer to the water as efficiently, and your water will remain cooler for longer.
Even when Belmont gets colder weather, the sun is still out for a large portion of time in winter. You may not be using the pool, but those solar bubble covers will be absorbing heat from the sun to keep your pool warm. In addition to keeping your water warm, the cover also protects the pool from debris and dirt that will dirty the water and potentially clog up equipment. As with all pool covers, bubble covers are not an adequate measure of safety. If you have children, you should look to invest in a pool safety fence for additional safety. Bubble covers provide minimal protection in terms of keeping people from drowning, so when it comes to safety, look to install additional precautions for your loved ones.
