How to look after your solar pool heating blanket

Solar pool heating in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne is a great way to extend your swim season, however, adding a solar pool heating blanket can help to keep the warm water in when you aren’t using your swimming pool. This is why it has become a great solar pool heating accessory for families in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. So, if you are choosing to install a solar pool heating blanket, how should you look after it? Here are our top tips for looking after your solar pool heating blanket.

Store your blanket properly
Solar pool blankets are made from completely different materials to your roof solar pool heating in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, and even though many types of solar pool blankets are made with UV stabilisers, they still require special protection from high temperatures (they should be stored below 45’C), direct sunlight, and chlorine. There are a few ways that you can help to take care of your solar pool heating blanket. An over-cover (which can be purchased at the same time when you purchase solar pool heating blanket), should be kept on your rolled up blanket whenever it is not in use. If you don’t have a pool blanket roller, you can fold your solar pool heating blanket like a concertina, one meter lengths apart. Whether you use a roller and a cover, or any other method, coverage is still important for the protection of your pool blanket, whenever it is out of the pool.

Clean off the chlorine
Solar pool heating blankets are great for keeping the heat in your pool and stopping water evaporation. However, even though the blankets are manufactured to go in your pool, chlorine transfer onto the blanket (due to chemical evaporation and the blanket touching the water), can still cause corrosion and deterioration of your solar pool heating blanket. The best way to help avoid this is by cleaning and storing your solar pool blanket properly. Cleaning your solar pool heating blanket is not a difficult process, all you need is a soft brush or rag, and a hose that uses clean, cold water, and then gently scrub it. You should be sure to clean your solar pool heating blanket each time before you roll or fold it up to store away. Doing this regularly will also help to remove any mildew or algae. If you are storing your solar pool heating blanket for some time, make sure you let it dry properly in order to prevent any mould or mildew from growing. With many solar pool heating blanket providers, the warranty actually becomes void when damage is caused by not taking care of your blanket properly (avoiding direct sunlight and cleaning away chlorine).
