Why Heat Retaining Pool Covers for Indoor Pools?

For creating a heat retention cover, utilising a close cell formation is the optimal choice. Specifically, closed-cell foams that are 6mm thick and are commonly used for swimming pools, while 8mm thick foams are typically used for spa applications.  

At Archbond, we can supply both levels of thickness, as well as individual requirements, meaning we have one of the most diverse ranges of measurements over competitors. 

As they’re great for reducing condensation, chemical use and retaining heat, our foam pool covers can be used for indoor pools all year round. They’re also excellent covers on outdoor swimming pools too. 

The foam covers provide added heat retention capabilities, which make them more cost-effective than bubble coverings, offering significant savings in terms of energy and chemical use. Whilst many companies will offer bubble covers that provide some heat retention, they do not provide nearly as much energy savings compared to our high-tech polyethylene foam covers.  

How much heat does a foam pool cover retain? 

Archbond’s foam pool covers will keep your water at a warm temperature, even during those cooler nights. Not only does this mean you can jump in the pool without the fear of it being cold, but it also helps to reduce heating costs! Our pool covers can increase heat retention by up to 75%.  

The polyethylene we use to create our heat retention pool covers has superior insulating properties compared to bubble covers. The foam acts as a barrier reducing heat loss more effectively. 

Why Should You Purchase a Foam Swimming Pool Cover for Your Pool?

Our heavy-duty, closed-cell polyethylene foam heat-retaining pool cover material is ideal for usage on indoor and outdoor pools, spas and hot tubs, as well as school and commercial pools and spas. We pride ourselves on providing solutions for the swimming industry and only fabricate the very best products at our in-house fabrication site.  

Foam swimming pool covers have an array of benefits and functions. Our foam pool covers work exceptionally well for insulation and reducing energy and running costs. All our thermal covers are made with an irradiation cross-linked PE foam that ensures maximum durability and low water absorption. We then strengthen the foam with a thick PE top sheet that has a scratch-resistant, transparent film on the reverse side. 

Our covers are designed to combat heat loss and we pride ourselves on this. Our pool covers can reduce heating costs by up to 85%, as well as reduce overall maintenance costs. 

The Other Main Advantages


Our pool covers are designed with durable woven top and bottom sheets, which provide additional strength and durability, especially for pools that are frequently used. These reinforced sheets are drastically extending the lifespan of the cover, ensuring that it remains in excellent condition for an extended period. Our foam pool covers are made to last.  

Decreases operational expenses 

Foam is widely regarded as the best heat retention pool cover on the market today. Although it was originally built for commercial and school swimming pools, it can also be used in a private home pool to provide the same result. We strive to supply foam pool covers for all types of wants and needs. 

Due to the reduction in heat loss from the pool’s surface, the closed-cell polyethene foam material has been specifically engineered to reduce wasted energy and expenses, allowing those with indoor pools to save significantly in operational costs. This means commercial businesses, including spas, hotels, and public pools, will hugely benefit from reduced costs as well as possessing an eco-friendlier solution to sustaining heat. 

You may also reduce humidity, condensation and evaporation, as well as improve the aesthetics, as our pool covers also mitigate debris entering the pool water. When used effectively, our coverings can reduce heat loss by up to 90%.
