500 or 600 Micron Pool Cover. Which one should I get?

What is the difference between 500 & 600 Micron Pool Cover?

Pool covers are crucial for keeping your pool clean and energy efficient. In South Africa, you can find pool covers in various thicknesses, measured in microns, which include 250, 300, 400, and 500. The thickness of the material is determined solely by the material itself and is not affected by the height of any bubbles in the cover.

Here’s what you need to know about the two main thickness options:

500 Micron Pool Covers: Pool Cover

  • Thickness: 500 microns (equal to 0.05mm).
  • Ideal for those who regularly remove the cover and have a roller.
  • Offers good durability, typically lasting 2-3 years.

600 Micron Pool Blankets:

  • Thickness: 600 microns (also 0.05mm).
  • Thicker material compared to the 500-micron pool cover.
  • Suitable for both residential and domestic use.
  • Slightly pricier but provides increased durability, typically lasting 3-4 years.

Choosing between these two thickness options depends on your specific needs and how often you use the pool cover. Thicker covers are durable and last longer, making them a wise investment for many pool owners.
