Why a Pool Cover? (Summer or Winter Covers)
Having a pool can be a heap of fun for the family, not to mention a great way to
deal with a Spanish summer.
However, swimming pool maintenance and cleaning can be a laborious and
It is not only nice to have it sparkle and looking great, it is also critical for pool
hygiene and safety.
Likewise, it is a laborious job ensuring your pool quality is maintained during
the winter months too and that garden debris, dirt and leaves are also kept to a
Installing a swimming pool cover and roller can save you more than just money;
you’ll be saving the sun’s natural warmth, water loss, heat loss, cleaning,
chemicals, time, evaporation and your pool's lifespan will be longer lasting,
allowing you and your family to swim for longer.
We can help you love your pool more and reduce water loss and running

What is GeoBubble Technology?
It is a new innovative bubble shape that has been scientifically designed to increase the expected lifespan of swimming pool bubble cover material by up to 25%*
The science behind GeoBubble technology:
Swimming pool covers are typically exposed to high levels of Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and chemical attack. GeoBubble is a material designed specifically for this environment, making the cover more resistant to these attacks and enabling a longer lifespan.
To understand the science of GeoBubble, it helps to look at the traditional bubble material used for pool covers. Originally their design was developed and adapted from the packaging industry, which is a high-volume, low-quality packaging bubble material with a short lifespan. Because of this, traditional bubbles have several inherent weaknesses in their design, including thin points and high residual stress areas. Thin points in a bubble design create weak points which are quickly broken down by UV rays and chemical attack. The degradation process is accelerated in areas of high stress as these areas are under constant strain. This results in the bubble material breaking down and will ultimately cause the premature failure of the pool cover. This is because of the inherent weakness within the bubble design produced by stress created in the material during manufacture. The angular profile of the traditional bubble design mould forces the material to move against the polymers natural flow characteristics applying stress which results in a thinning of the material and areas of high residual stress.
The GeoBubble has been designed to elevate these stresses during the moulding of the bubble profile. The geometric bubble allows the material to be formed without fighting the polymers rheological properties resulting in a material with a more uniform thickness, minimising the residual stress within the polymer structure.
What makes GeoBubble materials unique?
The features and benefits of a GeoBubble product include:
Unique patented design of two bubbles joined together by a structural waistline centre section
No sharp corners that could result in thin or weak points in the design
No stress points due to the bubble’s smooth interconnected curves
50% thicker than a traditional bubble material
Increased resilience against UV rays and chemical attack
Why does the GeoBubble shape have a large Surface area?
The GeoBubble design has a much larger surface area than most traditional bubble materials to allow for expansion of air within the bubble shape. The stiff waistline section ensures the bubble is strong enough to hold expanding air and will not stretch or burst under increased pressure. The large footprint also acts as an insulator, so the heat generated is also retained in the pool water. Furthermore, it helps the cover stick to or grip the water so it cannot be blown off the pool or lift in high winds, something that can lead to abrasive damage to the cover.
Measuring your pool
THE PERFECT FIT
Custom made for your pool
Ready to go? Firstly we need the measurements of your pool so that we can provide
you with a tailored quote. It’s easy! Just follow the steps below
How to measure for your pool cover:
1. Measuring your pool is simply a matter of measuring the maximum water level
width (W) and length (L) of the main body of water.
2. Using a tape measure, measure the length (L) and width (W) of your pool
3. Multiply the L x W to give the square metre figure which you’ll need to calculate
the costs of your pool cover
4. We will include extra material to allow for upturn and shrinkage, so the exact
water level measurements are all that are required
5. If your pool has steps, measure the step area separately (see diagram)
6. If you have a uniquely shaped pool, treat it as rectangular (see diagram).
Expert Tip: Our experienced network of Distributors and Installers use a Two Point
Plotting Method for measuring irregular curved shape pools..
Telescopic roller -
useful for easy storage and maneuverability
Telescopic winder (from 4.00 to 5.50 meters)
Diameter of the central tube 75 mm
Why use a Winter Pool Cover?
It helps keep leaves and debris out of your swimming pool during the winter season.
Some people like to place their pool into hibernation in the winter reducing running costs
and maintenance - Our winter pool covers are tailor made to fit your pool
