When purchasing a pool there are many different options and upgrades to choose from. Do you go with a Salt Chlorine Generator vs. an Automatic Chlorinator and UV Sanitizer, Variable speed pump, Diving board, Water Feature, Robotic Pool Cleaner…the possibilities seem endless. One product Precision Pools believes to be one of the most beneficial is the Cleardeck Recessed Solar Roller. It’s a common misconception that a solar blanket adds heat to the pool. While it may add a degree or two of surface heat its main function is to retain the heat achieved by your pool heater and the sun. The best part about the Cleardeck roller is that it’s recessed so you only see the lid on the surface and it’s flush with your deck. No more unsightly roller sitting on your deck that you have to wrestle with to move out of the way. Another great feature of the Cleardeck is the ease in which the blanket rolls up. Cleardeck provides you with a metal handle that attaches to the gear end of the roller and away you go. Virtually any size solar blanket can be rolled up by one person. You will need to fold the blanket into a rectangular shape if you have a free-form pool but it’s much easier than moving an entire roller out of the way. Because of the ease to put the solar blanket on and remove it with the Cleardeck, we find our clients use their solar blankets more which in turn helps keep heating costs in line. Cleardeck is Canadian made and operates out of Windsor and they provide excellent customer service. Definitely consider the Cleardeck roller when weighing all the options of your new pool.
