Before Heatsavr

until Flexible Solutions developed their patented Heatsavr, no other company had been able to make a monolayer spread reliably and inexpensively or to regroup effectively after the water had been disturbed. In non-technical terms the product is a mixture of carefully chosen ingredients which are lighter than water and which automatically float to the surface. The particles of the liquid are attracted to each other so that they always try to form a perfect, very thin layer over the whole pool surface. They are individually so small that they are 500 times smaller than the spaces in a super high quality filter. Unlike a conventional pool cover which has to be removed from the pool for swimming, Heatsavr breaks apart whenever the water is sufficiently disturbed but the monolayer reforms whenever the water becomes calm again. Consequently Heatsavr adjusts perfectly to changing activity levels in the pool throughout the day. Available through Brenntag UK, Heatsavr has to be added to the pool water on a daily basis to maintain its effectiveness. This is because Heatsavr biodegrades – it has what is called a two day half life – which means that in two days 50% of it has biodegraded. Easy and inexpensive to install the Heatsavr automatic dosing system provides a reliable and accurate method of ensuring that the pool benefits from the maximum energy savings

Whether it’s in a public pool, private spa or a school, it’s clear that covers, no matter their location, are an essential product for the successful running of wet leisure facilities” possible. Fully programmable to suit pool size and hours of operation, it only requires a weekly reservoir check with top up when necessary. It ensures that the correct dose is added to the pool regularly and at the same time.

A POLYMER-BASED LIQUID COVER FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR POOLS COVERfree from Natural Chemistry is a revolutionary liquid swimming pool cover that creates an invisible barrier on the surface of the water that works even when swimmers are in the pool. Distributed in the UK and Europe by Pool Cover Liquid – a trading name of HeatPumps4Pools Ltd – the product can significantly reduce the heat loss from a swimming pool and also reduces water evaporation. COVERFree is a unique polymer formula which unlike some other similar products, does not contain any alcohol and therefore it remains in the pool for longer. Unlike some other liquid pool cover products that require more regular dosing, the amount of COVERfree needed results in a 65% reduction in the amount of liquid pool cover required. This reduces the running cost of using the product considerably compared with other liquid pool cover products. COVERfree is biodegradable, non-hazardous and has been independently safety tested. It can be used on all types of commercial swimming pool including indoor pools, outdoor pools, natural swimming pools and infinity pools, and is available in the following sizes: Perfect for commercial pool operators, the Pro Series of COVERfree creates and invisible barrier on the surface of the water
