Frequently asked questions about our swimming pool covers

What is the difference between Rollo Solar premium swimming pool covers and other suppliers?

Our high standards of quality and uncompromising workmanship "Made in Germany" coupled with sophisticated design and a worldwide service team, as well as more than 30 years of market experience are reasons that speak for Rollo Solar. We develop and manufacture our products ourselves (even our new tubular drive) and this exclusively with German components, in addition, each of our products is subjected to an elaborate test procedure before it leaves our factory, for this purpose we also use our demo pools in- and outdoors, in which we can test our products under real conditions. With the additional certification by TÜV, NF and the hail class certification of some of our products, we also distinguish ourselves from other suppliers.

The press, as well as several thousands of satisfied customers in Europe can confirm this statement.

In which colors are the pool covers available?

We can offer you our PC Design profiles in all RAL colors, otherwise our profiles are available in our standard colors.

What is a solar pool cover? What are solar profiles?

A solar cover is the natural pool heater for your swimming pool. Our solar covers heat up to 3°C / 37,4 Fahrenheit per day, the transparent surface and the black underside provide this additional effect. You want to know more about our solar profiles, then click here.

What to do with the pool cover during winter?

Basically, our products are designed for year-round operation. The covers are winter-proof and can be stored within the pool or overwintered on the water surface)

We have compiled some tips for the winter season here.

Please note the instructions given in the operating instructions.

How are PC (polycarbonate) profiles different from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) profiles?

Profiles made of PC (polycarbonate) are much more resistant then profiles from PVC (polyvinyl chloride),  i.e. in detail the temperature resistance is almost twice as high as with profiles made of PVC,  thereby sun damage is prevented.
Also, the material is more impact-resistant, which is why we can also offer the profiles in high hail classes.  Finally, the smooth surface of PC profiles offers improved cleaning properties, i.e. lime and surface dirt are not as well adhered to and the profiles are therefore easier to clean. Due to the very good material properties we can offer the profiles in polycarbonate in completely transparent, PVC profiles, on the other hand, always have a light blue-veil due to its material, this is not disadvantageous, must only be aware beforehand.  (see picture)

What advantages does a swimming pool cover offer and how does it contribute to environmental protection?

The swimming pool cover is primarily responsible for reducing the evaporation of the pool water, both in indoor pools as well as in outdoor pools. This means that less water is needed, and the consumption of chemicals is reduced.

Less heat is lost, heating costs are reduced, and the pool season is extended, with the additional use of solar profiles, an additional heating effect can be achieved.

The swimming pool cover also prevents pollution of the swimming pool, which therefore requires less manual cleaning and, on the other hand, reduces the use of chemicals.

By using a pool cover, reopening the pool after the winter will no longer be a problem and emptying and refilling the pool is a thing of the past, as well as frost damage can be prevented.

Is the use of a pool cover for indoor pools useful?

By using a swimming pool cover in the indoor pool, evaporation can be reduced, which means that any mold formation is prevented and the building substance is protected.
On the other hand, energy costs can be reduced, due to the less needed air-condition and on the other hand by reduced heating costs, due to the good insulation properties of the cover.

What also is important is that the cover can prevent accidents from happen.

Which pool shapes can be covered?

Almost all pool shapes can be covered, whether round, square or even heart-shaped (see press).

Up to which sizes are the pool covers available?

Our standard system is available up to 6 meters wide and up to 15 meters in length, but also pools up to 22 x 50 meters are no problem for us to cover, see the example video of the lifting system 22 x 50.

Can swimming ponds be covered as well?

Yes, also swimming ponds can be covered with our covers. Here we would recommend the Design Profile PC in the color fern green, Polycarbonate also has a smoother surface than PVC and facilitates cleaning of the cover.

Which standards and certifications do Rollo Solar pool covers meet?

The production as well as our products meet the highest standards.

The production was certified by the TÜV-SÜD for the European standard.

We also meet French standards and are NF-France certified.

Our Design Cover profiles are also hail class certified, that includes up to Hail Class 4, which corresponds to a hail size up to 4cm /1,5 Inch in diameter.

Do ladders, counter current systems or inlet nozzles pose a problem for the realization of a pool cover?

Inlet nozzles or a countercurrent system pose a challenge for any pool cover, but only if it is in the area of ​​the rewinder, we have special parts in use that allow smooth installation and operation. Thanks to cutouts, ladders are no problem in the realization.

How much distance is there between the pool wall and the pool cover?

Our profiles as well as the retractors are made to measure with the highest precision and have a gap of about 13mm / 0,5 Inch per side.

My pool has a skimmer, is this a problem?

No, a skimmer or an overflow are not a problem to realize.

Can I increase safety for children and pets with a swimming pool cover?

Increased safety due to high buoyancy.

In the case of accidentaly falling on top of the cover, the swimming pool cover prevents falling directly into the water due to the high load capacity of up to 120 kg/m² 264 lbs/sqm, (depending on the respective profile). Leaving the cover is thus possible at any time without any risks.

In order to increase the accident protection, a handrail or a support edge is highly recommended, as you can already find them with many prefabricated pools.

Please note: A swimming pool cover can not replace the parents' duty of supervision and does not guarantee safety.
