POOL HEAT & EVAPORATION
pools lose energy in diffferent ways, but evaporation is easily
the most significant cause. Evaporating water requires a lot
of energy. It only takes 1 BTU to raise 1 pound of water 1
degree, but each pound of water that evaporates takes 1,048
BTU's of heat out of the pool.
your pool when it's not in use is the most effective way to
reduce pool heating costs. Savings of 50-70% are possible;
but taking a cover on and off all the time is a hassle. The
tropical Fish Liquid Solar Blanket is 100% easier to use.
7 mph wind at the surface of the pool can increase energy
consumption by 300%. Adding wind breaks such as fencing, trees,
shrubs, can lower heat loss if they are not overhanging and
creating shade, but are high enough to reduce wind.
Ask for it by name!
If it's not TROPICAL FISH®,
I t's not LIQUID SOLAR BLANKET®.
