Rectangle Solar Pool Covers
Rectangle solar pool covers for inground swimming pools are a popular, economically friendly choice when it comes to reducing water evaporation and heat loss for many pool owners. Leslie’s offers a great selection of solar covers for pools featuring varying pool cover thicknesses including 8 mil, 12 mil and 16 mil. 8 mil solar pool covers provide excellent pool water heating from the sun and easy removal with their lighter weight, but will not have as great of longevity when compared to other thicker solar pool covers. A 12 mil solar pool cover is a great option providing more heat retention and durability than an 8 mil pool solar cover. But if you are looking for maximum sunlight absorption and durability, then a 16 mil solar pool cover is the best pool cover choice for you.

There are many benefits when you use a solar pool cover to heat your inground pool. Swimming pool solar covers help hold in and retain the heat absorbed from the sun during the day. This will keep the water warmer, especially when the nights begin to get cooler as the summer swim season comes to an end. Solar Covers are also great to have on your pool in the spring, which will help heat up the pool water more quickly so you can get into the pool and enjoy swimming earlier.
Even if your swimming pool is not a complete rectangle, you can cut or trim the solar pool cover to size so it will fit custom or irregularly shaped pools. When ordering, make sure you get a solar pool cover that is able to accommodate the greatest length and width of your pool to help ensure complete coverage. To help make taking your solar pool cover on and off the pool easier, we recommend using a Solar Pool Cover Reel which are available for inground pool and above ground pool applications.
If you are looking for an alternative to a rectangle solar cover, Solar Sun Rings are a great way to heat up your pool water and are easier to handle for one person as each Solar Sun Ring is 5 ft. in diameter. The manufacturer recommends a minimum of 60% pool coverage or one Solar Sun Ring for every 50 square feet of surface area for optimal performance.
