Liquid solar blanket for swimming pools: an alternative to conventional solar blankets.
Evaporation accounts for up to 7/8 of heat loss from a swimming pool. A single Tropical Fish® contains liquid which automatically floats to the surface of the pool and acts as an evaporation inhibitor, much as a conventional solar blanket performs, except a lot easier to use.
Our key ingredient is a non-toxic chemical called Heat$avr; it's been around for over 8 years and has a proven track record in commercial use. We packaged it to facilitate its application for the residential pool owner. Heat$avr is filter friendly, does not affect the chemical balance (PH, chlorine, alkalinity) of the water, will not damage vinyl liners or any other pool surfaces, and is absolutely harmless to skin contact.
How does it work?
Simply snip the fin where indicated and toss the fish in your pool. The Tropical Fish® submerges to the bottom of the pool and as the pressure increases, the liquid escapes, rises, and forms an invisible layer on the surface of the water. It is 60% as effective as a conventional solar blanket but 100% less trouble. It works 24 hours a day, even while people are swimming. Tropical Fish® will last for approximately 1 month. Then all you have to do is retrieve the fish and toss a new one in.
