What color solar cover is best?
Asked in Pool Care and Cleaning
Can you leave your solar cover on and then cover your pool?
Should you leave the solar cover on while running a heater for pool?
Do you put the smooth or bubble side down on a solar cover?
Should you leave the vinyl pool cover on when using a solar blanket or does the pool cover above the solar blanket hinder the solar blanket's performance?
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.
How do you put on a solar cover?
Lay your solar cover, bubble side down on top of the pool Just want to add, we bought a solar cover for our above ground Intex pool. The cover completely covers the pool and keeps the pool water very warm (which is the purpose). However, you need to double your chlorine to keep from getting algae. It's almost like having a spa. When I lift the solar cover, there is condensation on the cover and steam coming out. So you need to really watch your chlorine levels. : You may also want to try using a liquid solar cover. They are really easy and relatively inexpensive...best of all, you don't have to put them on and pull them off all the time. Check out www.liquidpoolcovers.com

How does the color of a solar panel affect its power?
The color of a solar panel does not affect its output. Output is affected by the structure of the silicon, with single crystaline cells being the best, then poly crystaline cells then thin film amorphous cells. Sierra Solar, the Solar Living Institute, Giam Real Goods are all excellent places for more info

What is The difference in a solar blanket and a solar cover?
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.
