Splash Superpools have been in business for well over 40 years, having formed during the early 1970’s. Rebranded during 2002, Splash Superpools used to operate under the name of Agrisilos and Laghetto. Operating in both the residential and business marketplaces for pools and pool service equipment, the wealth of knowledge within the company is a really massive positive and should aid your choice when deciding which pool cover you purchase.
The Splash solar pool cover is within a range of other pool accessories, and comes in a vast variety of sizes, again complementing its existing ties with both commercial and private pools.
This solar cover like many before it floats atop your swimming pool and is light and easy to manage, meaning one person can easily and simply remove the sheet once the time comes to dive on into the pool. Boasting an array of great features, such as temperature retention and the bubble-cover feature that helps trap the heat within the pool and continues to allow the cover to float on the water, you know you’re getting at least what is industry standard with this product.

- The size of this product, as well as similar products within this range, is excellent. As it is so huge, you can use this with either a ground pool or a portable, smaller pool – it is simply up to you. You can change the size yourself, too, by simply cutting down the product to the appropriate size you need even when this is made from a durable resin.
- This product comes from a reputable company. It’s really underrated by consumers when putting thought into buying products, but making sure you purchase from a strong business within the industry is a must. It can reflect the quality of product you receive but also the service you get after you have paid your money that is just as important. As Splash Superpools have been in business since the early 70’s with much competition, they would not be able to survive without excellent products.
- This product promises to increase to heat of your pool by up to 15 degrees, improving both the temperature of your pool but also the length of time that the pool stays warm for. Great for swimming during nights late into the summer, the heat retained – due to the bubble technology – can also help keep your pool warm on cloudy, muggy days.
- This sturdy pool cover will stop your pool from getting dirty, which will help save money on chemical cleaner and time spent fishing out leaves and bugs when you could be relaxing in the pool.
What’s Not So Great?
- Of the few negative aspects to the product that there are, one of them if that it doesn’t look particularly great as an item. Sure, it does the job, but in terms of looking flashy or perhaps more upmarket, this item certainly lacks. Essentially it is a piece of material, so if you have a more modern, upmarket home and want something in keeping with this, I would perhaps have a little think about whether this is the best product for you.
- Because, as said above, it is a sole sheet of material, there is nothing attaching it to the edge of your pool. Sinkage or displacement in heavy wind is a viable possibility, and because it is a light product, there could well be a need to have it connected some way to your poolside. If it’s a ground pool you have, you may want to invest in a sheet with a permanent retraction unit that you can have installed at the end of your pool.

This product, no matter how simple and low key it is, works. You’re not getting anything flashy, and it is perhaps not built for long-term use outdoors, but for the price it is a good, solid purchase. Some of the pro points are really great - the level of solar temperature increase compared with heating without it is massive and is really worth the buy. And its ability to keep the pool tidy and clean during less-used seasons is a really handy addition - saving you time and money in the process.
The main negative for the product is the way it looks. It doesn’t have a great design and looks relatively underwhelming when on top of a pool. Practically, its sound, but design and appearance are important factors too, and this item just doesn’t do anything for me. If you are particularly house-proud and are looking for a pool cover that reflects this attitude, there are certainly more visually exciting products on the market. Having said that, if you’re just looking for something to throw over your pool as-and-when to turn up the heat, then you need look no further than the Splash Superpools solar cover.
I would recommend this to families for sure. It’s a basic but relatively cheap product that does what it says on the tin. What it lacks in flashy design it certainly makes up for in practicality.
