The Science behind GeoBubble

Swimming pool covers are exposed to high Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and chemical attack. GeoBubble has been designed specifically for use in this environment to help make it resistant against these attacks.

A traditional bubble cover material’s original design was developed from the packaging industry, which is a high volume, low quality packaging bubble material which only has a short life-span. Because of this, traditional bubbles have several inherent weaknesses in their design, including thin points and high residual stress. Thin points in a bubble design are weak points which are quickly broken down by UV and chemical attack. The degradation process is accelerated in areas of high stress, as these areas are under constant strain. These factors result in the bubble material breaking down, and ultimately, premature failure of the swimming pool cover.

What is a SOL+GUARD cover?

The innovative Sol+Guard swimming pool cover with GeoBubble technology is at the top of its class for allowing the maximum amount of solar gain. It also saves money, water and energy usage, as well as being scientifically designed to last longer.

  • Increase Pool Temperature

  • GeoBubble Technology

  • Reduce Chemical Consumption by up to 40%

  • Reduce Energy Consumption by over 70%

  • Reduce Debris Contamination

  • Eliminate water evaporation


GeoBubble technology

Sol+Guard comes with GeoBubble technology which through its unique and patented shape increases the expected life of the product by improving its endurance against the harsh swimming pool environment with Ultra Violet light and chemical attack.

How can this save money?

A Sol+Guard cover will save money by reducing water, heating, electricity and chemical costs. The Sol+Guard swimming pool cover can pay for itself in less than a year.

Increase pool temperature

The Sol+Guard 500micron transparent pool material transmits 80% of the suns energy in the visual and IR spectrum through the material to heat the water, reducing the heating demand

Eliminate Water Evaporation by 98% +

With a Sol+Guard pool cover you will be able to eliminate water evaporation by over 98%, thus greatly reducing your water consumption and water charges, as well as saving a vital resource

Reduce Debris

Leaves, dirt, insects, bird droppings and other debris are not only unsightly in a swimming pool but also provide nutrients for algae and bacteria to feed on.  When the pool is covered these contaminants will be kept out of the water, greatly improving the quality and appearance of the water, plus helping to reduce chemical consumption.
