Residential swimming pool owners can dose their pools on a weekly dosage at a recommended rate of 4 ounces of Heatsavr for every 400 - 600 square feet, or approximately 20,000 gallons of water.

For more information on using Heatsavr on home pools, visit Residential Pool Owners.

​​1 Ecosavr™ will cover a 400 square foot pool (a pool with approximately 15,000 gallons of water) for about a month. 

If your pool is larger than that, you can use two Ecosavr™. However, if you have a very large pool, one that is more than 800 square feet, you may want to consider trying Heatsavr™ with another application method.

​All pool owners know that keeping a pool warm can sometimes be quite the feat.

Pool covers are one way to keep the heat in the pool, instead of evaporating into thin air—literally!

Remember when your mother always used to tell you to “close the door, we aren't paying to heat the outside!” Well, a good pool cover is a swimming pools equivalent to that door.

Most people are familiar with plastic or bubble blankets for pools. These can either be automatic or manual and they work by applying a layer of plastic to your pool that will insulate it.

About 75-80% of all the heat lost from your pool water is through evaporation, so by keeping this in your pool you keep it warmer for a longer period of time, which is exactly what using a pool blanket will accomplish.

A good plastic pool blanket can typically protect against about 75% of this evaporative heat loss.

Now that liquid pool covers are all the rage, people are continuously asking what is the comparison value between a plastic blanket and a liquid blanket.

Well...

Question and Answer
​Heatsavr™ is a transparent liquid that spreads itself out over the surface of a body of water. When it is added to your pool, it creates a liquid barrier between the water and the air, which helps to reduce the rate of evaporation. 

Since the average pool loses approximately 70% of its heat to evaporation, Heatsavr™ helps maintain the water temperature in any pool, saving heat, water and money to keep a pool's heater running.

Zebras - A to Z Blogging Challenge
​​If you have a zebra in your pool, that's not something we can help you with. I would recommend calling your local zoo, or possibly your mum. Usually when I have a big problem I call my mum.
 
I know what you're thinking: "Will the zebra doing the backstroke in my pool disrupt my liquid pool cover?" That would be my first thought, too. Thankfully, your liquid pool cover will be much less disturbed by your visitor from the velt than your filter will be.
Flexibility is only one of the features of a liquid pool cover, but it's definitely one of the more important ones. Think about it—what is the main drawback of most pool covers? It's hard to decide, isn't it?
 
For me it's the having to take it off and put it back on repeatedly. You can buy an automatic pool cover, of course, but it will cost you. And if it breaks? What a pain!
 
I'm sure there are others who would argue that the worst part of a pool cover is the issue of safety. Pets and children can quite easily become trapped by a pool blanket, and that's a terrifying prospect. Again, with the right amount of cash, you can get a cover that is built specifically to prevent this outcome.
 
Between that and automating the cover, though, you're not going to have much left for pool snacks. And that's basically the whole point of the cover, right? To help save you money by reducing evaporation and heat loss? Sure, they can stop things from getting in your pool as well. But, in my experience, all the stuff on top ends up in the pool anyway once you pull the cover off. And, if your objective is to save money, you're going to be doing a lot of pulling the cover on and off. Why? Because your pool cover only keeps the heat in while it's on your pool. So all the time you spend practicing your aqua-jogging is essentially money wasted.

You should try telling these facts to the zebra.  It'll probably get so bummed out that it'll go find somewhere less depressing to swim, like the sea around Alcatraz Island.

Don't tell the zebra the good news—that all of these problems can be solved by using a liquid pool cover, like Heatsavr and Ecosavr. No more cumbersome pool blankets, risk of entrapment, or losing valuable coverage time when the pool is in use. Throughout the day your pool will stay covered and safe, saving you time and money. And the money saved isn't a pittance, either; we're talking about up to 40% of your pool's heating costs here. And, come hail or housebreaker, the liquid cover will continuously reform to keep your pool protected.
 
With a win-win situation like that, you could afford to invite the whole savannah to your backyard. I wouldn't recommend it, but food for thought, anyway.
