        • Can COVERfree be used on indoor swimming pools?

          • Yes – COVERfree is very effective on both indoor and outdoor pools. By reducing water evaporation on indoor pools, the amount of work that the dehumidification equipment needs to do is reduced and this gives additional cost savings on top of the savings that using COVERfree provides from heating the pool water.

        • Can COVERfree be used on infinity pools?

          • Yes COVERfree works well on infinity pools. However if the infinity pool uses a balance tank, then as the liquid pool cover floats on the surface of the water, any liquid pool cover can become trapped in the balance tank and cannot return to the pool as it would with a skimmer pool. If the outlet from the balance tank is at the bottom, then the liquid pool cover will float on the top of the balance tank and can be trapped there. If however there is an overflow outlet to the balance tank, the liquid pool cover can then leave the balance tank and recirculate back to the pool.

        • Can COVERfree be used on natural swimming pools?

          • Yes – as COVERfree is biodegradable and non-toxic, it has no effect on the growth of plants etc in natural pools.

        • Is COVERfree as effective as a physical pool cover?

          • Whilst the heat retention properties for COVERfree are not as high as for traditional pool covers, COVERfree will still provide significant energy savings compared to pools with no pool covers. It is therefore ideal for pools where a traditional pool cover is not used.

        • Is COVERfree safe?

          • Yes – COVERfree has been independently tested to show that it is safe to skin and eyes at the recommended concentration. It is biodegradable and non-hazardous. It is also PH neutral and so does not affect the water’s chemistry balance.

            COVERFree has been NSF certified and has a Material Safety Data sheet - see the Documents page to download these documents

        • How do I add COVERfree to the pool?

          • COVERfree can simply be applied straight from the bottle to the pool. The measuring scale on the side of the bottle can be used as a guide to the amount to add. Alternatively an automatic dosing pump is available to automatically add the required amount of COVERfree liquid to the pool at scheduled times.

        • Can COVERFree be used with salt pools?

          • Yes – COVERfree can be used with salt or chlorine based pools

        • Does COVERFree have a smell, can I tell it is in the pool water?

          • No - COVERfree is odourless and clear and cannot be seen or smelt when in the pool water

        • Can COVERFree be used in conjunction with a physical pool cover?

          • Yes - COVERfree can be used with a traditional pool cover. It will then reduce heat and water loss when the physical cover is off the pool. This can be beneficial for pools that remain uncovered during the day for example.

        • Will chlorine in the pool affect COVERFree?

          • No - COVERfree is a polymer based product and is not affected by chlorine (or salt) in the pool water

        • Can COVERFree be used on ozone pools?

          • Yes - COVERfree is a polymer based product and is not affected by ozone

        • Can COVERFree be used with UV pool water sterilization systems?

          • Yes - COVERfree is not affected by UV sterilization

        • Can COVERFree be used with activated carbon filters ?

          • Yes - COVERfree's unique polymer based formula is not affected by activated carbon in the pool filtration system

        • I am not based in the UK, can you ship COVERFree to me?

          • Yes - We can ship COVERfree to any country. Please contact us for a shipping quote.

        • Does COVERFree have a shelf life?

          • No, not really. COVERfree's unique polymer based formula will not breakdown over time and so the product has a very long shelf-life (at least 2-years). We however recommend that COVERFree is not allowed to freeze, for example if kept outside during winter.

        • Can COVERFree be used on commercial or public pools?

          • Yes, COVERfrees provides excellent benefits and cost savings for commercial pools. On commercial pools with higher bather loads or deck level pools, the dosing rate should be increased to twice per week. In addition, due to the high bather load, for best results we recommend feeding COVERFree in small amounts multiple times per day using the COVERFree automatic dosing pump. Please contact us for further advice on using COVERFree with commercial pools.

        • Can COVERFree be used with hot-tubs? Does the high water temperature (around 40c) affect the dosing required?

          • Yes, COVERfree can be used for hot-tubs. COVERfree's unique polymer based formula is not affected by higher water temperatures and can be used on hot tubs. The normal COVERFree dosing rate is recommended for hot-tubs

        • Do COVERFree and Pro-Series have the the same chemical formula?

          • Yes, COVERfree and Pro-Series have exactly the same formula only the bottle size is different. The sml 0.9 litre bottles are labelled as COVERFree, whereas the 3.9 litre and 18 litre sizes are labelled as Pro-Series Liquid Cover.
