Liquid Solar Pool Covers By Flexible Solutions
Why use a Pool Cover?Evaporation is the major source of heat loss for all swimmingpools. To minimize energy/heat loss one must cover the poolCovering the pool is the single most effective means ofreducing energy/heat loss
Why use a Liquid Pool Cover?Ease of use and installationInexpensive – Low capital costs and maintenanceWorks 24 / 7, even when pool is in useSafety Allows pool to be viewed to the bottom Avoid entrapment Commercial liability

Pool owners and operators can relax, the cover. knowing that their pool is covered at all times.
What is it made of?The active ingredients in liquid pool covers are biodegradable organiccompounds. Extensive testing proves that the active ingredients wehave chosen do the best possible job at reducing evaporation, savingwater and energy in every poolThe carrier agent is a bio-based Ethanol which evaporates off the poolwater within minutes of being dose. Ethanol allows the activeingredients to spread out quickly and effectively. When the carrieragent is not an alcohol, as in some competing products, the resultingapplication is a slurry or milky solution, which spreads more slowlyand may coagulate.
The ScienceHeatsavrTM consists ofmolecules that are attractedto water at one end andrepelled by water at theother. Each moleculeentangles with its neighborsforming a barrier that slowsthe evaporation of watermoleculesMolecules spread out at arate of 6 mph

Pool Chemistry pH Neutral No adverse effects on chemistry Chlorine/Bromine and gassing off Ozone, UV treatment and flocculants“ In conclusion, pool water quality components common monitored by pool operators, including: free, total and combined chlorine; water temperature, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, saturation index, iron, copper, nitrates, phosphates and clarity were not affected by the addition of Heatsavr. Minor fluctuations in water chemistry that occurred during the 30-minute test periods were more likely a consequence of normal chemical consumption resulting from introduction of bather and environmental wastes, and automated chemical injection.” Alison Osinski, Ph. D.
Safety DataHeatsavrTM has been in use for 20+ years around theworld and has never caused a single health or safetyissueThere have been multiple 3rd part health & safetytests conducted on HeatsavrTMRead Safety Data:www.liquidpoolcovers.com/safety-data.htm
