New Residential Heatsavr Dosing

For approximately 20 years, Flexible Solutions has been marketing and selling Heatsavr™, the original liquid solar pool cover, around the world as an easy to use alternative to a plastic pool cover. When our innovative pool blanket was still fairly new to the marketplace, we suggested commercial facilities use Heatsavr™, packaged in 140 ounce jugs, and residential pools use our small Ecosavr™ fish.

For many years, this served the market well.
Recently, however, more and more home pool owners have been requesting liquid pool covers in bottles, so that they can control the dosage better and not have to worry about having a fish at the bottom of their pool. Although Ecosavr™ remains the popular choice for above ground pools, we began packaging our Heatsavr™ in 32 ounce bottles to better suit backyard in-ground pools. For the past few years, residential pool owners have had the choice of manually dosing their pool each day with our 32 ounce bottle that has an easy pour spout, or installing our recommended HS115 Automatic Metering System to take care of the daily dosing for them.

In an effort to meet the demands of the marketplace, we have extensively researched our active ingredient to determine the actual lifespan of the molecular layer. We are happy to announce that, once added to a pool’s water, the active ingredient in Heatsavr™ and Ecosavr™ will continue to protect the pool’s water for an average of one week.

Since liquid pool covers are biodegradable, Flexible Solutions has always maintained that, in order to achieve the best possible results, a daily dosage is preferred. This will ensure that the liquid cover is replenished consistently, before it breaks down completely and fails to cover the pool adequately. However, based on our research we have determined that the rate of circulation, splash-out and bather load for a residential pool will be low enough to allow for a once-a-week application.

With that news in mind, we have decided to introduce a new weekly dosage for residential pool owners!*

Beginning in 2015, our HS480 (cases of 12 – 32 oz bottles of Heatsavr™, each with easy pour spout) will have the new residential weekly dosing instructions and a shiny new label to call attention to the product.

Home pool owners can now dose their pools only once a week at a rate of 4 ounces per 15,000 – 20,000 gallons of pool water. A single bottle of our product will last the average backyard swimming pool for 2 months.

If you have any questions about our liquid solar covers, Heatsavr™ or Ecosavr™, or about the new dosage rate for residential swimming pools, please feel welcome to contact Flexible Solutions at your convenience.
