Dear Pool Owners

This is the time of the year to buy your summer pool cover, and below we highlight our two bestsellers for the PowerPlastics Pool Covers ‘sensible’ summer season.

Why sensible? Well, we call it a ‘sensible’ summer as we believe it is time to cover your pool for all the right reasons. We also feel that, living with the COVID–19 pandemic, people have become a lot more responsible and sensible and, as we gradually get back to normal, we are more conscious of our environment, bearing in mind that pool covers are perfect water savers, chemical savers and electricity savers.

We also believe that COVID-19 has left us with the need to feel more connected to those important to us, and who more special than family? It sounds so simple but a beautiful pool, family, friends and lazy hot summer days by the pool are what family memories are made of. Just add a pool cover for a heated pool and we're talking a truly sensible summer! 

As we head into summer we wish to show you our two bestsellers - the Sol+Guard GeoBubble cover for maximum heating from a pool cover, and the Thermal GeoBubble cover which is a slightly lower specified product but one that offers excellent benefits on water, power and chemical savings as well as heating gains. If there are children and pets at home, please take note of our year-round bestseller, the PowerPlastics Solid Safety Cover. 

So let's make this the most sensible summer yet with the pool covers explained below. And lastly, if you are a serious swimmer, read on to learn how we can maximise your training with a pool cover.

GeoBubble high performance pool covers - 

spend less and get more from your pool this summer

The innovative GeoBubble thermal material has gone through various upgrades since it first entered the market some years ago and today it ticks all the boxes on pool cover performance in respect of savings and natural heating. Compared to the old, first generation round bubble covers, GeoBubble is - hands down - the way to go if you want a warmer, more sustainable swimming pool. It is important to know that while the cheaper, traditional round bubble covers are still sold, they are chalk and cheese when compared to GeoBubble. Know what you are buying and buy from a company that understands the technology that goes into pool covers and how they perform best.

Rollup stations 

for your GeoBubble cover

If you have a larger pool cover or if you operate your pool cover on your own, you may want to consider a Rollup Station to aid cover usage. 

We have two manual systems - the Jupiter Rollup Station and the Mercury Rollup Station. Both excellent for home use. 

Stepping it up a notch, The PowerPlastics Automated GeoRoller is an excellent and affordable way to add automation to your GeoBubble cover without the cost of fully automatic slatted covers. 

Learn more about these systems here.

Did you know that we are the leader in thermal covers for gym, school and other commercial pools?

There are a number of Olympic water sports which all require huge levels of fitness and time spent in the water. If you think about the waterpolo players, the synchronized swimmers, the underwater hockey, diving, competitive swimmers, paralympic swimmers, tri-athletes etc - there are a multitude of athletes needing warm water to train in.

Warmer water, or water heated to around 26 degrees, is a perfect temperature as it allows muscles to perform at their peak. The best way to heat the pool is to use a pool cover when the pool is not in use. In this way, the water is heated using the sun's energy and gets warmer much faster. Pool covers also retain heat. 

If you are serious about any type of competitive swimming, a pool cover is an absolute must. Buy from a company who knows how to best cover commercial sites and venues.

Chat to us or ask your coach, school, gym or pool manager to get in touch with us about a GeoBubble cover for the training pool.

Cover of the month: Roldeck

It doesn't get better than a Roldeck fully automatic slatted cover. We recently installed this stunning Roldeck cover in Somerset West.
