ABGAL Solar Blankets

Solar Blankets are made from a film containing thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool. An ABGAL Solar Pool Blanket floats on top of the water and allows the solar energy to pass through, then traps and retains the heat in the pool.

Swim sooner and longer – enjoy your pool for an extra few months a year. ABGAL’s Solar Blanket will increase pool water temperature by up to 8 °C and will reduce heating costs by up to 50%. Pool water stays warmer longer, therefore extending your swimming season.

Most heat loss in a pool is caused by evaporation. An average metropolitan pool can lose up to 1.5 metres per year. A solar blanket will trap the heat and reduce evaporation by around 90% plus save you up to 50% on chemical consumption.
