Bubble covers can seem strange at first sight but they are the latest in pool coverings and safety. Solar bubble covers are the best way to keep your pool warm and clear from debris. In Foster City, the weather can be unpredictable, so you want to have a reliable pool cover to protect your investment and to keep the pool clean and safe.

Bubble Covers in Foster City, CA

Solar bubble covers work by trapping the sun’s heat in tiny bubbles. This stored heat is then transferred to the water. The bubbles should always be face down to ensure heat is transferred efficiently. The bubbles 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 which can be expensive. Many people mistakenly install the covers with the bubbles facing up, thinking they need to face the sun. In this position, the bubbles will still trap and transfer heat but it may take longer. Directly facing the sun could also result in damage to the bubbles. If they overheat, they will be unable to transfer heat to the water as efficiently, and your water will remain cool. Even if the weather turns too cold to use the pool, the sun is still out for a large portion of the time. You may not be using the pool, but those solar bubbles will be absorbing heat from the sun as long as it is in the sky and this will 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 and damage equipment.

Final thoughts

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 and covers should not be used alone as a safety measure. Bubble covers provide minimal protection in terms of keeping people from drowning, so when it comes to safety, look to install additional precautions like a safety fence and self-latching gate to protect children and pets.
