ENVIRO-BUBBLE 500 MICRON SOLAR POOL COVER
In the South African climate, swimming pool owners are only able to make use of their swimming pools for a limited number of months during the year. Water loss is of major concern with an average uncovered pool losing over 3000 litres of water a month. The Enviro-Bubble Solar Pool Cover is an excellent product introduced to reduce water loss by over 95% while preventing algae growth and reducing chemical use. Quality of material is key with a solar cover and the Enviro-Bubble Solar Pool Cover is just that, a high quality product, backed by a no nonsense 4 year warranty. That’s our promise to you, that your pool cover will last and perform in the harsh South African climate. While reducing overall pool maintenance and water loss
What’s so great about the Enviro-Bubble Solar Cover?
Aqua-Net believes in offering the pool owner quality products with industry leading warranties, service and value for money. The Enviro-Bubble solar cover is manufactured from 500 micron UV treated material that is designed to last a minimum of 4 years in the sun. All solar covers are not created equal. They may all perform a similar function, but lifespan is dependent on material thickness and UV stabilisers in the material.
Made from material that does not allow sunlight through, the Enviro-Bubble prevents algae growth. Your pool will not go green. Green algae is a common problem with solar covers due to the warmer water. This product is primarily designed to stop water loss, reduce chemical use and maintenence.

frequently asked questions
How is the Enviro-Bubble different from other solar covers?
Solar covers were first designed to heat pool water, to extend the swimming season. This is done through transmission of the sun’s UV light through the material whereby water temperature is raised by as much as 8 degrees. Solar covers also stop water evaporation. Due to the large amount of water lost through evaporation, many pool users turn to a solar cover to save water and money. A major issue with solar covers, and the transmission of light and consequent warmer water, is algae growth. The Enviro Bubble is designed to stop UV radiation, stop water evaporation and stop algae growth. It is one of the best ways to close a pool for a period of time limiting wasted water, time spent on maintenance and chemical costs to achieve a sparkling blue pool.
If your primary goal is to stop water loss and prevent your pool going green, then the Enviro Bubble is your best solution.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SOLAR COVER OPTIONS?
Aqua-Net has three solar cover variants. The Aqua-Dome and Aqua-Bubble are both standard use solar cover and are both equally capable of achieving the desired heating benefits as a result of sun exposure and reducing water loss through evaporation. The difference between these 2 product variants relates to the lifespan of the material. The 500 micron Aqua Dome lasts almost double that of the 500 micron Aqua-Bubble. 7-8 years lifespan of the Aqua-Dome vs 4 years expected lifespan of the Aqua-bubble. This is due to the higher level of UV inhibitors in the Aqua-Dome our premium solar cover offering.
The 500 micron Enviro Bubble is designed to stop water loss and stop algae growth. It is not effective at heating the pool water. It has an expected lifespan of 4 years minimum and this is backed by a 4 year reducing warranty.
A solar blankets’ lifespan is determined by variations in the material thickness and construction of the bubbles of the blanket. Shortcomings with regards to expected lifespan are generally attributable to usage and care factors. Excessive exposure to unbalanced water or concentrated chlorine levels or exposure to the sun when off the pool, are the main contributing factors to pool cover failure.
How does the Enviro-Bubble save me money?
Water evaporation is eliminated when a solar blanket is in place on a pool. As water is fast becoming an expensive and scarce resource, the Enviro Bubble offers the ecologically conscious pool owner a means to reduce water usage, chemical usage and electricity. The cost incurred purchasing an Enviro Bubble solar cover is recouped as result of water and chemical savings over the lifetime of the blanket.
Why the guarantee?
The Enviro Bubble is supplied with a four year reducing warranty. This is our promise to you that the cover will last a minimum of four years with constant use.
Are there optional extras?
Storage rollers are available to assist with fitting and removing the cover.
This is the entry level roller system and is designed for use on smaller pools and is made from combination of aluminium and PVC. Available in Grey. The storage roller is designed to assist in easy fitting and removal of the cover.
Eco Roller Plus
The premium roller system made from aluminium and designed for larger pool covers. Available in White. The Eco Roller PLUS is designed to assist in easy fitting and removal of the cover.
The leading edge is a reinforcing on the front the cover. A pvc pipe is inserted into the sleeve created and a rope attached. The leading edge assists in the fitment and removal of the cover from one point without requiring the user to walk down the length of the pool dragging the cover into place.
The edge protector is a stick on edging that prevents unnecessary wear of the cover material on the paving edge when fitting and removing the cover.
Are you the cheapest?
Aqua-Net offers high quality products with industry leading guarantees, service and back up support. We are not the cheapest, but the best value for money. A decision to buy and Aqua-Net product is a long term investment in your pool that will translate to money saved.
What maintenance is required?
Use mild soapy water and a soft brush to clean the solar blanket. This becomes especially necessary when there is salt build up on the cover with salt water pools.
Debris and dust can be hosed directly into the pool skimmer box/weir. Before storing the blanket, clean it and allow it to dry thoroughly to prevent mildew. Fold it only on the seams and roll it from one end. If possible it is best to simply roll the blanket up without folding it. Place the blanket in a clean, dry, rodent-free area where temperatures will not reach 40 degrees Celsius.
Exposure to the sun, water and pool chemicals during normal usage will eventually destroy the solar blanket. The time this takes to happen is dependent on the usage and care given to the solar blanket. When bubble disintegration, delaminating, flaking or peeling occurs, remove the blanket from the pool and replace it with a new solar blanket.
If the pool cover has not achieved it’s expected life, then it almost certainly has been subject to excessive chlorine levels / unbalanced water and / or excessive exposure – either intermittently or continuously.
The chemical environment in a pool is created by:
- The amount of UV rays produced by the sun and the exposure of the blanket to these rays on and off the pool.
- The volume of pool chemicals (such as chlorine) in the pool water.
- The chemistry parameters that balance the pool water (pH) Potents Hydrogens, (CH) Calcium Hardness,(TA) Total Alkalinity.
- The heat of the pool water (whilst the cover is on the pool).
- Damage caused by excessive chemical exposure is excluded from the warranty.
