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.

Yard - A to Z Blogging Challenge
Your yard is unique, and therefore should be cared for in a distinctly unique manner. There are many common problems that home owners need to find solutions for when it comes to their yard care, but most solutions are not one size fits all. Which means that there will be some degree of time, energy, knowledge and/or creativity - and usually money - required to customize the right solution for your needs.

There are a few products, however, that really can fit most circumstances (within their realm of expertise) without requiring any extra effort on your part.

Please take a minute to consider the follow questions, answering only yes or no:
  • Do you have a swimming pool? If yes, keep reading. If no, unfortunately you have the wrong blog...
  • Is that swimming pool rectangular?
  • Is that swimming pool some other interesting shape?
  • Does that swimming pool have water in it?
  • Do you heat that water?
  • Do you experience overnight heat loss from that water?
  • Do you have water features in your pool, such as a Zero edge entrance, and Infinity Edge, water falls or fountains?
  • Is it bigger or smaller than 400 square feet?
If you answered yes to 1 or more of these questions, than Heatsavr is a solution to many of your problems. Whether your pool care concerns are financial, - it costs too much to fill your pool and keep it heated - comfort focused, - you like to swim in water that is a certain temperature and it's difficult to keep it warm enough - or socially motivated, - you care about the impact your pool is having on the world, in regards to energy and water consumption - there is one single product that can make a difference in your routine.

Heatsavr can and will fit any size pool, any shape pool, and any pool in any location and it will always be safe and effective. Now, I can't guarantee exactly what results any individual pool will see, but it will save heat, water and/or energy in every swimming pool out there.

Results will vary. Safety won't. It will always be safe when used as recommended.

Heatsavr is a biodegradable product that breaks down into safe and simple compounds. It has been tested by professionals and proven safe. Customers have been using the product for over 15 years. Therapy pools, swim schools, hotels, and regular ol' backyard swimming pools use it every day, across the world. And you want to know how many health concerns have been called in?

None.

Not one.

Zero.

In over 15 years, there has not been a single complaint or concern about Heatsavr. Please with senstivie skin can use it. If you have allergies, no fear, it is safe. Your freckles will not disappear, it will not cause you to grow a third eye and it won't even irritate the two already have.

Heatsavr. Any time. Any place. Any pool. Always Safe.

And just to throw one more great benefit into the mix, it won't change the appearance of your yard in the least. Your poolscape will look just as great, your flowers will bloom exactly the same color, and you won't have any frustrating rollers or big, blue plastic blankets to disrupt the beauty of your yard.

Xerophyte - A to Z Blogging Challenge
According to Wikipedia,

"A xerophyte (from Greek xero dry, phuton plant) is a species of plant that has adapted to survive in an environment with little liquid water, such as a desert or an ice- or snow-covered region in the Alps or the Arctic.
The morphology and physiology of xerophytes are variously adapted to conserve water, and commonly also to store large quantities of water, during dry periods. Other species may be adapted to survive long periods of desiccation of their tissues, during which their metabolic activity may effectively shut down. Plants with such morphological and physiological adaptations are xeromorphic."

Vapor Retardants - A to Z Blogging Challenge
​Everyone knows that liquid pool covers save heat in pools by lowering the rate of evaporation, right? Well, some people know that (now you certainly do!).

What often goes unrecognised, however, is that if there is less evaporation when you use a liquid pool cover like Ecosavr or Heatsavr, than you are without a doubt going to be losing less water. According to a study conducted in AZ, you are actually going to be losing about 50% less water!

With the current state of drought in California, and the recent years of drought throughout the country, many areas are actually mandating the use of a vapor retarding cover for all swimming pools as a measure to conserve precious water.
