As the popularity of solar-powered pool ionizers continues to grow, a common question arises: “Will the solar pool ionizer work if my pool is covered?” The answer is yes, a solar pool ionizer will work if your pool is covered, but there are a few caveats.
To get the most out of your solar pool ionizer, you’ll want to make sure the cover is made from a translucent material, such as mesh or plastic, so that the sun’s rays can still penetrate the material and reach the pool’s surface. This is especially important since the solar pool ionizer needs sunlight to generate current and begin the process of ionizing the water.
How long your pool is covered?
Another consideration is how long your pool is covered for. If it’s only covered for a few days at a time, then the solar pool ionizer should still be able to perform its job of disinfecting the pool water and keeping it safe for swimming.
However, if the cover remains on the pool for extended periods, then the solar pool ionizer may not be able to generate enough current, and your pool water won’t be ionized as effectively.
Position it correctly
Finally, you should make sure the solar pool ionizer is positioned correctly, so that it can still receive adequate sunlight, even when your pool is covered. This means finding a spot that’s in direct sunlight most of the day and away from any trees or other objects that could cast a shadow on it.
In summary, a solar pool ionizer can still work effectively when your pool is covered, but it’s important to make sure the cover is made from a translucent material and that the pool isn’t covered for extended periods of time. Additionally, you’ll need to position the ionizer correctly so that it can still receive adequate sunlight, even when the pool is covered.
