Solar Cover Repair Tape

Let’s face it. Sometimes accidents happen and pool covers get ripped.

Maybe you’ve caught it on your ladder, or you’ve tried to pull the pool cover out from the reel system,
forgetting it’s locked. Maybe the local wildlife have had a go at it?

At our testing centre, we’ve seen seagulls poke holes in covers, cats scratching them, and even our R&D
team dropping equipment on them during testing.

If you ever damage a pool cover, you might not want to go to the trouble and expense of replacing it. However, the options for a DIY solution are quite limited. Very few adhesives will bond to the plastic sheet and even fewer will offer a lasting bond when exposed to the harsh environment of a swimming pool.

However, there is now a simple and cost-effective product that offers a lasting and durable solution. Utilising the same HDPE reinforcing material as our Woven Product range, our new reinforced weave repair tape has been developed and tested to offer environmental resistance, tensile strength, and longevity. This tape will help prevent further damage, prolong the useful life of the pool cover, maintain the pools aesthetics, and most importantly prevent loss of vital water resources.

To test this tape, we sent samples to customers around the world to be tested in under high temperatures and UV conditions such as South Africa and even the Palm Springs California to be tested under temperatures up to 40°C / 104°F.

The tape has even proved strong enough to reattach a cover that has be cut across its width.

The repair tape is a simple solution to make sure the pool owner gets the longest possible benefits from their cover, and we have provided a simple how to video to help ensure a clean, effective, and hassle-free repair.

Need a harder wearing cover? Why not try our one of our Guard range of pool covers with a Reinforcing weave – All the benefits of a high performance cover, with a 250% increase in tensile strength.

Aquaflex Edge Seal – for solar covers to suit Deck level and Infinity pools

A neat solution to the problem of exposed edges to solar covers on both Deck Level and Infinity pools. The ingenious new Aquaflex Edge Sealing strip has a weighted hem hanging approximately 5″ (127mm) under the edge of the cover to keep it in place and protected from the wind. For Deck Level pools the Edge Seal would be on all four sides, whilst for Infinity pools it would only be required on the relevant side(s) of the cover.

Aquaflex Roller to cover Attachment Kit

This universal kit provides a simple method for attaching any type of solar cover to any type of roller. Each kit comes complete with all the straps, toggles, screws and washers required as well as a drill bit.

Aquaflex Solarglide

The Solar Glide Leading Edge is a towing device which enables the pool owner to pull the solar cover off the roller onto the pool with ease. It can be supplied either in kit form for retro fitting to an existing solar cover, or factory fitted as part of a new cover. The Solar Glide enables the cover to be positioned easily on the pool with the minimum of effort. Prices shown on page 45.

Roller Storage Cover

Covers left on rollers for extended periods, especially during the winter should be protected from the elements. The Aquaflex Roller Storage Cover is made from robust green reinforced PVC specifically designed for outdoor use.
