bubble pool cover damaged

When should I replace my solar bubble pool cover?

A solar bubble pool cover, also known as a solar blanket, is a vital tool for pool maintenance, helping to retain heat, reduce evaporation, and prevent debris from entering the water. Over time, however, these covers can wear out and lose their effectiveness. Here are key indicators to help you determine when it’s time for your solar bubble pool cover replacement:

Key Indicators For Bubble Pool Cover Replacement

  1. Visible Signs of Wear and Tear: Inspect the surface of your solar cover regularly. If you notice signs of wear such as tears, holes, or patches where the bubbles have flattened or disintegrated, it’s likely time for a replacement.
  2. Loss of Bubbling and Insulation: The bubbles on a solar cover trap heat from the sun and insulate the pool water. If the bubbles have become flat or deflated over time, the cover will lose its ability to efficiently warm the pool and reduce heat loss. This is a clear indication that the cover is no longer performing optimally and should be replaced.
  3. Reduced Effectiveness in Heat Retention: As solar covers age, they may become less effective in retaining heat in the pool water. If you notice that your pool is losing heat more quickly than it used to, even with the cover on, it may be time to invest in a new cover to restore optimal heat retention.
  4. Difficulty in Handling and Securing: Over time, the material of a solar cover can become brittle or lose its flexibility, making it more challenging to handle and secure properly. If you find it increasingly difficult to remove, fold, or place the cover back on the pool, it could indicate that the cover has reached the end of its lifespan.


Regular inspection and proactive replacement of your solar bubble pool cover ensures that your pool remains energy-efficient and clean. By recognizing these signs of wear and tear, you can maintain the effectiveness of your pool cover and prolong its lifespan.
