Pavis Pool Covers for Rectangular Pools

Bonus Offer:- Free Connection Kit with All Solar Covers - Valued at $35!

All Pavis Pool Covers feature exclusive SmartBubble technology known as the 'smartest' bubble profile on the market to create a tough durable pool cover to extend the life of their pool covers. Used with a Pavis Pool Roller, most pools can be covered and uncovered in a couple of minutes.


A cost effective and convenient way to save water and heat your pool at the same time, Pavis Pool blankets are made from a film containing thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool. The blanket floats on top of the water (bubble side down) and allows solar energy to pass through - trapping and retaining the heat in your pool.

Main benefits of a Pavis Pool Cover -

  • Save water. The 400 and 500 micron varieties have been independently tested, and proven to stop up to 99.84% of evaporation.

  • You'll swim sooner and longer – your pool cover will increase the water temperature by up to 8°C, giving you a warmer pool, for longer.

  • Your chemical consumption will be greatly reduced. Once a your Pavis Pool cover is installed, we recommend that automated chlorinators be turned down by 50%.

  • All Pavis Pool covers are suitable for both salt water and chlorinated pools.

  • All Pavis Pool solar pool covers are specially treated to resist UV damage.

  • Made in Australia, Pavis pool covers are made from category 4 LDPE – so are completely recyclable!


If you are replacing a cover and would like to reattach the cover to your existing roller you will require a refit kit. These kits are automatically supplied when purchasing the pool cover roller (unless a roller is purchased at the same time as rollers come with refit kits). 

Expected Pool Temperature with a Pavis Pool Cover

    How to measure for your Pavis pool cover:

    Solar blankets are supplied as a rectangular sheet and therefore need to cover the entire pool including steps. Measure the longest length and the widest width of pool (see diagrams below) to ensure you get the correct blanket for your pool at the waterline.

    Fitting a solar blanket is a relatively simple job. Take your time, and cut it at least twice - and preferably leave 2 to 3 weeks before your final trim. This allows for the packing folds to flatten out, and for the cover to settle. It is possible for a cover to lose around 10% in length within the first couple of weeks - this is allowed for on a new cover, so bear it in mind, and do not cut too much off thinking the cover is too big.

    Remove the cover from the box, and lay it next to the pool. Carefully unfold it, and spread it over the pool surface, bubble side down, smooth side up. If you can, leave it in the sun for a couple of hours to give the cover time to 'relax'.

    When it is ready, smooth the cover out, over the pool surface, getting rid of wrinkles and air pockets. Smoothing it with a pool broom often helps. Once flattened, you can start trimming to shape with a pair of sharp scissors. When you come to the skimmer box, cut a 'flap' or 'tongue' to sit inside the box.


    We suggest fitting the blanket a little larger, so that it 'turns up' at the edges, creating a bowl effect within the pool, so that leaves or debris will sit on top of the cover, rather than falling into the water. Leaves can then be brushed or blown into the skimmer box before taking the cover off. Leave a good 10-15cm of extra material all the way around during this first trim, cutting the blanket so that it sits just under the pool coping.


    If you have someone to help, ask them to hold the cover still, at the opposite side of the pool to where you are working. While you are trimming, it is important to keep checking behind you and in front, to make sure the cover does not move.

    Once you have your basic fit, stop cutting, then leave the blanket to 'relax'. In around 2-3 weeks time, you can come back and trim to the final fit.

    Once your cover is in place, it is important to check the settings on your automated chlorinator. Your new Pavis pool cover will cut chemical usage by around half, so you need to make adjustments. We recommend turning automatic chlorinators down to half the previous setting, then checking pool chemical levels and continuing to adjust settings daily until the appropriate levels are reached.

    You can easily do this yourself with a packet of test strips.

    1. It will cut chemical consumption by around 50%.  Automated chlorinators must be adjusted appropriately.  Failure to do so will result in over-chlorination, and damage your cover.

    2. Check chlorine levels regularly.  Chlorine levels should never exceed 3ppm - to do so will damage a solar cover, and void any warranty.

    3. When super-chlorinating, remove the cover completely, and do not replace it until chlorine levels have returned to normal.

    4. Most solar covers will shrink, and this is allowed for on new covers.  Never trim exactly to size upon installation - allow for several cm all around, and wait for at least 2-3 weeks before doing a final trim.

    5. A solar blanket must always be covered when rolled up.  If left uncovered, the layers heat up and can melt.  It is called "roller burn" and can not be repaired.

    6. Never swim under a solar cover.  The cover literally sticks to the water surface, so there is no air underneath it.  Covers must be completely removed from the pool prior to swimming.
