Helping the environment and your energy bills!
Thermapool swimming pool insulation is the most effective way of ensuring your swimming pool is cost-effective to heat and has minimal impact on the environment - it helps to reduce CO2 emissions your pool contributes to the environment and also helps to significantly cut your energy bills!
Heat doesn’t just escape from the top of a pool:
It makes sense that heat evaporates from the tops of swimming pools. However, there are other areas that lose significant amounts of heat that are often not considered by builders due to cut backs. It doesn’t matter whether the pool is above-ground or in-ground, the sides and bottom of the pool will still lose heat into the soil.
By fitting insulation to the sides and bottom of a pool, Thermapool have discovered they can prevent an incredible 86% of heat loss from the pool.
Insulation needs to be dry to be effective:
Insulation materials used in general building construction are excellent at keeping heat in because they stay dry. Unfortunately, they’re ineffective for insulating swimming pools, because they become wet and lose their insulation properties.
This discovery led us to develop Thermapool insulation which is completely waterproof and impervious to moisture. Thermapool has been independently tested to keep its thermal performance for more than 40 years so we guarantee it for 25 years ensuring its insulating properties.
Fitting insulation to the inside of the pool is more effective than fitting it to the outside:
You wouldn’t think it would make much difference whether pool insulation was fitted to the inside or the outside of a pool. Well it does: a 50% efficiency difference in fact! When pool insulation is fitted on the outside of the pool, only 41% of heat loss is prevented. Thermapool’s unique waterproof qualities mean it can be fitted to the inside of the pool and prevent a significant amount of heat from escaping into the soil.
Pool insulation needs to be robust:
Like a normal building, swimming pools can be affected by minor ground settlement causing them to crack. Unlike other pool insulation materials, Thermapool has been designed to withstand these minor movements as well as the incredible weight and pressures water puts on to the walls of a pool. This means it can not only be used on the sides of the pool but also on the bottom. This means it can be used to insulate the entire pool.
2010 building regulations:
All Thermapool products comply with the new UK building regulations coming into effect in 2010 and 2013, which state that insulation for swimming pools will be compulsory.
Cost & Energy Savings.
It doesn’t matter if you’re having a new pool installed or you want to get your existing pool insulated, Thermapool is the most efficient and only government-approved insulation product available.
Infact, it is so efficient our customers have had to turn the pool’s heating off during the hottest weeks of the year! What’s more, our research shows that swimming pools fitted with 75mm Thermapool insulation can save upto £2,900 per year* in energy costs and prevent up to 6 tons of CO2 entering the earth’s atmosphere.
* Calculations based on 10m x 5m x 1.5m swimming pool heated by electric to a temperature of 37°c at 10p per Kwh.
