Can you use an automatic pool cleaner when the solar blanket is on?

Generally yes, as long as the solar blanket does not interfere with the hose to the automatic cleaner. This will depend upon the exact type of cleaner you might have.

In most cases, the hose will simply move smoothly along the underside of the solar blanket. I would suggest that you try it but keep a close eye on things until you are sure the blanket is not obstructing the movement of the cleaner.

...

I use my barracuda under the solar cover all the time. The steps in the pool usually cause more of a problem than the cover. However, once the pool is clean, the solar cover usually helps to keep it clean.

It should work alright however the blanket may interfere a litle with the movement of the hose at the surface.

With a gas heater or solar or both and/or a solar cover or blanket. But I am assuming that you mean an above ground pool ~ then use the latter (solar blanket) .

You lay it across the surface of the pool.

With a solar blanket . They also have solar heaters you can hook up to them.

You shouldn't. The solar cover will keep the chlorine from disolving in the sun. Take the cover off and shock the pool. When the chlorine drops to a normal level cover the pool again if you use a blanket.

Pool temperatures can be increased by installing a pool heater. They can also be raised by using a solar blanket.

If this blanket is vinyl as many are then use Aqua Seal or Seal All.

User Avatar

no you don't need to although the surface of the pool wont get clean as the blanket stops the skimming effect.

User Avatar

No, under no circumstances should one use bowl cleaner in a pool. Why, did someone take a dump in the pool?

A Polaris 280 is a pool cleaner. It is an automatic in ground pool cleaner that you plug in and hook up to a dedicated pressure line for easy pool maintenance.

Remove the vinyl cover when using a solar blanket to warm the water. If the vinyl cover is used at the same time as the solar blanket, the vinyl cover absorbs most of the heat and then transfers the heat into the air or water between the vinyl cover and the solar blanket. Then the heat transfers to the solar blanket and then, finally, into the water. When this happens, a lot of heat remains in the vinyl cover and air/water between the two covers instead of getting into the water. It is preferable to have the heat absorbed by the solar cover and then transfer directly into the water. Hope this helps... Too much redundancy in pool covers.

"Kreepy Krauly" "Pool Vac" "Pool Cleaner" Your traditional automatic pool floor cleaners are not bad however they only clean the bottom of the pool and do nothing to keep the water clean. For an automatic pool cleaner that stops the water from getting dirty in the first place and sanitizes the the surface of the water where the greatest risk to health is have a look at the Dragonfly Super Skimmer.

It's a polyvinyl cover that lays on top of a pool and keeps heat in.

User Avatar

It just simply floats on the water. You need to lay it in your pool and cut it so that it fits.

User Avatar

Just trim the blanket to fit the pool. Why have all that extra material hanging over the deck? Serves no purpose.

User Avatar

They are the same thing basically. Pool Cover, Solar Cover, solar Blanket are all used interchangeably. It's basically some material, usually a plastic bubble mesh or vinyl covering that goes over the pool. The exception to this is Winter Cover which generally is heavier and designed to protect your pool during long winter months.

"โ€ข The POOL ALARM can be used with a solar blanket." you can go to www.poolguard.com and read manuals for the different alarms they have.

User Avatar

So long as the blanket doesn't interfere with the flow of water it doesn't mater when you run it.

User Avatar

I left mine on for an entire winter, 4 months.

It will keep floating. Some of the water will remain on the top of the cover, but most will run off the side and enter the pool.
