About this item

The 18' Round Heritage Solar Pool Blanket helps to maintain the temperature of your swimming pool. This solar pool blanket will allow you to cut down on electricity usage, which will reduce your bill as well. The shape is an exact circle, with an 18' diameter. This round pool solar cover fits well on rigid pole pools. It functions equally well with above-ground and in-ground varieties. The seams are welded for better durability. When covering a pool, this blanket increases the water temperature and reduces the overnight heat loss. This above ground 18' pool solar cover is extra useful during winter, because that's when pools spend less time in use, and you want to keep leaves and other detritus from falling in. The solar blanket prevents evaporation and keeps the pool clean.

It is made of durable plastic and has thousands of tiny air bubbles designed to capture and transmit solar heat to your pool for a significant temperature rise. And because it only uses energy from the sun, it's good for the environment, and won't add a cent to your electric bill.
Heritage 18' Round Solar Pool Cover:

  • Round 18' pool solar cover
  • Increases the water temperature
  • Only uses solar heat which is good for the environment
  • Prevents evaporation and keeps the pool clean
  • Comes with plastic material to dry the blanket and keep it dust free

Really does work

Customer review by ehrle

This solar cover is a must! It really helps bring the temperature up quickly and keeps the water warm during the cold. It also cuts way down on evaporation and keeps the pool cleaner. ONE THING THOUGH, if you bought it to cover an 18' round intex pool, this cover is TOO BIG, this year I bought a 15' cover and it fits my 18' by 48' round pool perfectly.

I see a lot of reviews stating the 15' cover will work fine. However that is only if you have the inflatable ring pools. Those pools surface area is a lot closer to 15'. The more popular rigid pole pools that stand straight up are truly 18' across so this 18' solar blanket is necessary. I had a solar cover in the past that was square- talk about a pain we had to chop it ourselves. This one however, comes 18' in a circle and it's great. I've always been a huge fan of solar covers- they float so easy along the water and you can put it on yourself no need for help! Use the white plastic it comes with to lay down on the ground- it keeps the cover from getting dirt all over it- fantastic thanks! Our pool gets plenty of sun but always cools at night so a huge recommendation to ANYONE trying to warm their pool is that it's a MUST to leave this on all night. In fact any cover what so ever should be left on at night. No solar blanket or solar fish will work at all if you let the water cool overnight so be smart and leave it covered. We sometimes have our water skyrocket to 87 plus degrees so we often take it off in the morning and only use it overnight. I know it's crazy but honestly solar blanket or not- I'd use this as a cover for it's ease of use and to keep the dirt out.

  • You know honestly I would get the 18' and cut it to the size you need. This is just quality bubble wrap with some sort of backing on one side so scissors or a utility knife should work just fine. I really recommend cutting to size just because these blankets work best when it's flat on the water. It also helps keep them from getting blown around. So yes you could use the 18' just fine.

  • absolutely, just stretch the cover over the pool surface and trim it to size, otherwise you will have wrinkles in the cover and wind may get under it and blow the cover off

  • You can use the 18' cover on your pool, it will hang over to the ground with a little bit extra just make sure you keep it clear of the pump.

  • You can but you'll have to cut a lot of it off. I got an 18' blanket for my 18' pool and I still had to cut some off. The 15' blanket would fit perfect!

  • the 15' cover fits the 18' pool perfect so i would assume the 16' would be fine. my 18' cover is way too big for my 18' pool.

  • Yes, you can always cut it down or let it hang over a little. I haven't cut mine down, and it works great :)

  • I put a couple of tarp hold downs to keep it near the pool if it blew off but even in storms it has never moved

  • I've had both the air filled and rigid pole pools. Both work great with this cover because it sits directly on the water- we have extremely high winds here for two months on end and it never blows off. The debris cover that came with it was just terrible- ripped first year- blew off constantly- always getting stucked under the water. This cover if you put it on keep your water level where recommended you shouldn't have any problems.

  • We've had some pretty high winds and I was concerned about that too. But with gusts up to almost 50 mph, we had no problem with our cover blowing off or away.

  • I have a ring pool with this cover. I didn't even cut it to size- just tucked the extra length under the ring- and it stays put. In heavy wind it will move over about a foot, but has never blown off in even the worst storms.

  • It can take a mild wind without being blown off.

  • the cover will be a little bit bigger than the pool surface so you need to stretch it out and trim the cover so it lays flat on the water w/o and wrinkles. If you do that the wind should not be able to get under the cover to blow it off.

  • This cover stays put!! We have wind ranging from 15 MPH to days like today with winds of 50 MPH. It did not even move out of place. The cover that came with the pool was torn up after the first dirt storm. That was 4 days after we got it. This cover is awesome!

  • It hasn't blown off my pool yet. It stays pretty well, due to the water holding it in place...
