How do Liquid Pool Covers Work
While it reduces evaporation, it will also be helping to conserve water.
Well, when you pour Heatsavr into a swimming pool, or when the Ecosavr fish releases the liquid cover into your pool, it rises to the surface because the product is lighter than water. Once it hits the surface, it starts to spread itself out across the surface. The molecules that make up the liquid pool cover product like to sit side-by-side, rather than piled on top of each other, so they will situate themselves accordingly. They will keep moving sideways to sit next to their fellow molecule until there is nowhere left to move to - when they find the outer edges of your swimming pool.
The great thing about these molecules is that they are so tiny - remember high school science, when you try to see microscopic molecules under a mircoscope? - so very tiny that a small amount of liquid pool cover will put enough of the molecules in your pool that they can all sit side-by-side, close enough to cover the entire surface of your pool without you even being able to see them with your naked eye.
The video below does a good job of showing what this process would look like, if you could see them:
My biggest question is this. "Why are solar blankets still even being used." I could take your product here in Florida and sell a freakin' train load of this stuff. So let me get this straight. You pour in the amount needed according to your pool size, sit back and allow the molecules to align themselves to form a pool side to pool side cover. What if someone goes swimming at night? Do you put in more, or will that amount suffice throughout the evening. Spending $3.50 / wk sounds pretty good. Do you ever consider outside sates, or hiring a senior to help their fellow friends with pools save money? You can not blame a guy for asking. Let me know. I will be sending in an order to try this stuff out. Can I use this product in a fiberglass pool that has been recently re-gel coated to a nice beautiful white.
