Heat Retention and solar gain
Heat is retained by the silver underside reflecting captive heat back into the pool. Apollo also allows a certain amount of sunlight into the pool water ensuring solar gain. These features lower heating costs when compared with a standard bubble cover.
Reduces chemical demand
Limiting the amount of light passing through the water will inhibit the growth of algae, therefore reducing the demand for pool water sanitisers.
Reduce heating costs
The vast Majority of heat loss from swimming pool water is through evaporation. Aith an Apollo 400 GeoBubble cover in place, evaporation will be dramatically reduced.
The unique shape has been proven to withstand both chemical and UV attach. A smooth shape and uniform thickness results in an increased expected lifespan of 25% in comparison with conventional bubble covers.
The material reduces water losses through evaporation by working as a barrier between the water’s surface and the atmosphere. Evaporation is responsible for 70% of the heat loss from a pool due to the evaporation processes high energy requirement. To heat one gram of water 1°C it requires 1 calorie of energy as the same gram changes phase and evaporates 540 calories are consumed resulting in heat loss in the swimming pool. By simply covering the pool with the material evaporation is reduced by over 98% resulting in the preservation of the water resources and increased emperatures within the swimming pool.
