Solar Pool Covers - Pool Blankets - Bubble Blankets

What ever you choose to call these pool covers, they're a valuable accessory to your pool. When you use a pool cover, you'll save water, reduce chemical consumption and make it easier to maintain your pool. Solar covers have the added benefits of heating your pool too.

So it's really not a question of 'do I need a pool cover?', but rather, 'which pool cover best suits me?'. A solar cover? A leaf cover? A shut down cover? A non heating cover? A thermal cover?

If you've narrowed it down to a solar pool cover, you're in the right place, so read on...

Oasis solar pool covers and blankets are manufactured using the revolutionary 'SmartBubble' profile. SmartBubble boasts all the benefits of our original bubble shape, in a bubble that is around 20% flatter - making ABGAL solar covers more compact and easier to handle.

What are the main benefits of an ABGAL Oasis Solar Pool Cover?

  • Save water. The Oasis 400 and 500 micron varieties have been independently tested, and proven to stop up to 99.84% of evaporation.
  • You'll swim sooner and longer – your pool cover will increase the water temperature by up to 8°C, giving you a warmer pool, for longer.
  • Your chemical consumption will be greatly reduced. Once a pool cover is installed, we recommend that automated chlorinators be turned down by 50%.
  • All Oasis covers are suitable for both salt water and chlorinated pools.
  • All Oasis solar pool covers are specially treated to resist UV damage.
  • Made in Australia, Oasis pool covers are made from category 4 LDPE – so are completely recyclable!

I've already purchased a solar blanket - how do I install it?

How do I measure my pool to know what size solar blanket I need?

Solar blankets are supplied as a rectangular sheet and therefore need to cover the entire pool including steps. Measure the longest length and the widest width of pool (see diagrams below) to ensure you get the correct blanket for your pool at the waterline.

It will stop over 99.% of evaporation, and comes with a 12 year pro-rata warranty.

How does a Solar Pool Cover work?

A cost effective and convenient way to save water and heat your pool at the same time, Solar blankets are made from a film containing thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool. The blanket floats on top of the water (bubble side down) and allows solar energy to pass through - trapping and retaining the heat in your pool.

All ABGAL Oasis solar pool covers feature SmartBubble technology- the 'smartest' bubble profile on the market. Used in conjunction with a reel system, most residential pools can be covered and uncovered quickly and easily – often in around a minute.
