I need to buy a new solar cover for my ingound pool and I want to know what type would be the best and of what thickness.
I have seen some solar blankets that have just a clear top and some that have a clear top layer and a silver aluminized bottom layer.
The ones with just the clear top seem to heat a pool the best, but I have read that they also retain the least heat at night.
The ones with the clear top layer and a silver aluminized bottom layer seem to potentially be the best of both worlds.
The clear top layer evidently maximizes the amount of sun's rays that penetrate to the greatest depths of your pool.
The silver aluminized bottom layer apparently reflects the absorbed heat back into the pool to retain more heat.
It would appear that a solid silver bottom layer would not allow heat in, but the ads imply that these particular ones do, but I am not sure whether it is because the silver is not completely solid, has areas of being clear, etc., etc.
At any rate, has anyone had a solar blanket of this type with a clear top layer and a silver type bottom that they can comment on?
Thank You Very Much
