The Science behind it
The science behind the revolutionary Covers4Pools ,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 materials 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 makes GeoBubble unique?
Unique patented design of two bubbles joined together by a waistline centre section
No sharp corners resulting in no thin or weak points in the design
The material contains no stress due to the smooth interconnected curves
The overall thickness of a GeoBubble is 50% more than a traditional bubble
Increased resilience against UV and chemical attack
Geobubble Saving Water
Swimming pool covers eliminate water evaporation by over 98%, thus greatly reducing your water consumption and charges, as well as saving a vital natural resource.
Geo Bubble Energy Saving
By having a swimming pool cover you can reduce your energy consumption by up to 50%.
During the day your swimming pool cover increases your standard pool temperature by up to 4°c. This works by allowing the suns energy to pass through the cover and heat the top layer of the water and secondly, through absorbing the suns energy and passing this heat through to the water by direct contact.
A swimming pool cover will also help to retain heat in your pool at night as the cover acts as an insulator stopping cooler outside air from reducing your pool temperature.
The combination of additional heat during the day and the retention of this heat at night will dramatically reduce your energy consumption in your pool. Evaporation through the pools water surface area is by far the greatest source of energy loss for swimming pools attributing to up to 70% of the heat lost.
Research in collaboration with UK universities showed that by using a swimming pool cover on an average sized UK pool, 4m x 8m, that uses a modern heat pump, you could save up to 5000 kWh of electric every year!
Standard pool covers will reduce your chemical consumption by up to 50%. The two main factors for this reduction are the prevention of debris and chemical evaporation.
By having a cover debris is prevented from entering your pool water. Any debris that would normally enter your pool uses up chlorine and so eliminating this reduces the amount required.
Stopping water evaporation also stops the evaporation of chemicals, thus allowing the chemicals in your pool to complete their full cycle and not be lost to the atmosphere. Pool covers typically reduce pool maintenance and make it easier to keep your pool water balanced within industry standards.
Research in collaboration with UK universities showed that by using a swimming pool cover on an average sized UK pool, 4m x 8m, up to 50% could be saved in chemical consumption, which equates to up to 8kg of chlorine!
