Frequently Asked Questions

Can I swim while a liquid pool cover is on my pool?


Absolutely! Heatsavr™ and Ecosavr™ are specially formulated to be completely undetectable when they are in use. You will not be able to see, feel, smell or taste the liquid pool cover when it is used as recommended.

Once a liquid pool cover is covering your pool, swimmers will cause the product to break up and move away from them, but as soon as the water calms behind a swimmer the liquid blanket will reform itself!

Are liquid pool covers safe?


Yes! Heatsavr™ and Ecosavr™ are completely safe for all swimmers, pool equipment and the environment!

Toxicology reports have been done on the product and shown that it is absolutely safe for use in any swimming pool.

The Heatsavr™ liquid pool cover is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. When used as recommended it will not alter the chemistry of your water, or affect your equipment in any way.

How do liquid pool covers compare to plastic pool blankets?


Based on a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week comparison, the liquid solar pool cover is about 75% as effective as a plastic pool blanket.

It is important to remember that the liquid solar pool cover is protecting your pool 100% of the time, even while you are swimming, whereas a plastic pool blanket is only effective when it is properly secured and perfectly fitted to your pool.

What if pets &/or children drink from the pool water?


Liquid pool covers were created to be used while people - and pets - were swimming. For that reason, safety was a high priority during the original development.

Flexible Solutions has spent a great many years gathering data and information to prove that Ecosavr™ and Heatsavr™ are completely safe for all swimmers. Even if you, your children, or pets drink from the pool water, the liquid pool cover will not harm them.

If you are storing excess liquid pool cover, it is recommended that you keep it out of reach of children and pets, and it should never be ingested from the container, similar to the safety precautions of all other pool chemicals.

Can I use a liquid pool cover if my circulation system is on & / or I have jets running?

The dosage rate for liquid pool covers was carefully and strategically set to work on pools under regular pool use conditions. As such, the dosage rate it high enough to compensate for some product always moving through the circulations system, and some product being splashed out during regular pool usage.

Because of the unique and patented formula, Heatsavr™ and Ecosavr™ will form a complete layer over a pool's surface, moving at a speed of approximately 6 mph. This means that some water interruption will only cause very temporary disruption in the coverage, and only over a very limited area.

What happens to a liquid pool cover when it's windy?

During periods of quite high winds, a liquid pool cover will be moved to one side of the pool if the pool is not sheltered from the wind. However, your pool will always have partial coverage, saving more heat, energy and water than you would if there was no cover in use at all.

As soon as the wind dies down, the product will re-spread itself out over the entire surface of the pool. Even though the coverage with a liquid pool cover may be temporarily disturbed during high wind periods, the savings will still be obvious - and you won't have to chase a plastic pool blanket around your yard or pool area!
