31 Mar Alternative Heating Methods
While weather here in Kentucky can be different all the time, we want to give all customers the benefit of warmer swimming. There are a few ways to heat a pool without the expense of a pool heater.
The first method is with a solar cover. A solar cover is placed on the swimming pool and begins to trap heat. The cover helps to retain heat from evaporation during cooler nights or days. These covers also help prevent debris getting in your pool.
Here are some reasons to own a solar cover:
- Heat your pool up to 10 – 15 degrees
- Reduce evaporation up to 90%
- Reduce chemical consumption up to 30% – 60%
- Reduce the amount of dust, dirt and debris in your pool
- Extend your swimming season
Another way to keep your pool heated is with Natural Chemistry Cover Free! This chemical is more for retaining heat rather than heating the pool but is still a great alternative! A mono-layer, one molecule thick, is formed on the water surface. High surface tension allows it to remain in place or reform during swimming. You can’t see or feel it in the water.
Here are a few benefits of Coverfree:
- Helps preserve hundreds of gallons of water
- Reduces water evaporation by 85% or 60 gallons a day
- Reduces heat loss by 70%
- Saves energy
