    SolarPill - Does it work?

    Solarpill. I am wondering if it really works



    Info:

    Prevents pool water heat loss and evaporation using an invisible layer of non-toxic, biodegradable film
    Works like a conventional solar blanket, but without the hassle
    Much more for much less! - One pill treats up to 30,000 gallons
    Patented delivery system for complete coverage
    Will NOT be affected by automatic pool cleaners

    Looks like another delivery system for Heatsavr, the liquid solar blanket. It's usually seen as a solar fish that you drop in the pool. Heatsavr works and can keep up to about 6 degrees of heat in the pool overnight IF the water does not get disturbed by wind, etc. My feedback on the product from my customers is that it works for some people and not for others. I tried it (solar fish) and got about a 2 degree overnight heat saving.

    I tried a liquid solar blanket witch you just poured in as well as the fish and had very little heat retention. I have found nothing beats the good ole solar blanket.

    I agree, we used the fish with no noticable heat retention compared to a blanket. Save your money and get the blanket, which will also help keep water bugs and debri out of the pool.
