Crash Course for Liquid Solar Pool Cover Newbs
by Monique Nelson on September 3rd, 2009

Considering you found this blog, you probably have some interest in learning about liquid solar pool covers. If not, you may have very questionable 'googling' skills, but continue reading anyways, because you just might find the idea of liquid solar pool cover technology fascinating and awe-inspiring. I know I do!

Anyhow, assuming you have some interest in such as thing as a liquid cover for your pool, this blog will help you get familiar with all the basic benefits and features of the original product, Heatsavr.

The Heatsavr liquid is simply a chemical added to your pool's water that floats on the surface, creating a barrier that helps to slow down evaporation. Evaporative loss accounts for about 70% of heat loss, so, by slowing this down, you will keep the water in your pool warmer for a longer period of time.

You will not smell, see, feel or taste the product once it has been added to your pool water, but you should probably not drink the liquid out of the bottle. You wouldn't drink the chlorine either, would you?

Thousands of people across the world are using this product and if you own a pool and you don't have a liquid pool cover, you are falling drastically behind the times.

Flexible Solutions is the original manufacturer of liquid solar pool covers, and they offer the product under the brand names of Ecosavr and Heatsavr. Both of these products are available pretty much across the globe and are sold in most large pool supply stores.

In other news, let's talk about the "green" factor. Each and every store that you go into there are thousands of products bombarding you about their "green" qualities. You know that more often than not it is pure and simple marketing drivel. It's called "green-washing" and it makes most of us wary of any one or any thing that claims to be green.

When it comes to liquid solar pool covers, fear not. They really are good for the environment. Not only is the product itself biodegradable, but the end result is conservation. Water is saved. Energy is saved. Not to mention precious dollars. So go ahead, save the world. Use a pool cover. Better yet, use a liquid pool cover that will not put rolls of plastic into landfills when you are finished with it, need a prettier one, or just throw it out because it's too darn hard to use.
