A Sun Dome enclosure for your Oval aboveground pool will lengthen your swimming season and keep your pool cleaner from harmful air-borne debris and pollutants.
The aboveground domes are either round or oval and will fit most round or oval pools. The Sun Dome also helps prevent water evaporation and is
easy to assemble. Once it is assembled it is very easy to take down and put up again.
All Sun Domes Include:
Tailor Made Vinyl and Aluminum Enclosure - The Sun Dome is a heavy 12-gauge vinyl pool enclosure that is supported by a series of aluminum tubes. The crystal clear cover is heat-sealed to fit the tubes based on pool specifications, to provide a tailored fit for every pool size. Sturdy Double-Zipper Doors and Windows - Each pool enclosure has one door opening with two heavy duty two-sided nylon zippers as well asone or more fiberglass screened window flaps/openings for flow-thru ventilation. Both doors and windows come with vinyl tabs to hold flaps in place. Solid and Secure Enclosure Framework - The bottom edge of the enclosure is 24-gauge and has a series of grommets. Neoprene shock cords are then attached to the grommets and hooked onto the base of the dome. This system ensures that the vinyl enclosure is heldsecurely over the pool framework - making the Sun Dome an extra strong framework.
What are the benefits of having a Sun Dome on my pool? Warming and heating is one of the key benefits - it warms the air (40°) and water with solar heat up to 20° Fahrenheit. It also protects your pool from leaves, bugs, debris and early spring or late summer breezes. Because your pool is protected, you cut down on the use of chemicals.
What is the Sun Dome made of? The cover material is 12-mil double polished clear vinyl. The frame is 1" diameter polished aluminum tubes. Neoprene shock chords attach to grommets to secure the enclosure over your pool.
Is there a Warranty? We cover your Sun Dome for 1-year for defects in material or workmanship. The average life of the Sun Dome Vinyl is 3 - 5 years depending on the environment it is exposed to and how well it is cared for.
Can I install a Sun Dome myself? Most of our customers do install the Sun Dome easily themselves. Generally, it takes 2-3 hours, assuming you have a power drill, measuring tape and duct tape. Inground pool domes however would take two men 8 hours.
What about winter weather conditions? The Sun Domes will usually take winds up to 40-45 mph, however, it is not made to withstand heavy sustained winds, and more important, the weight of snow. In heavy snowfall areas, it is necessary to remove the dome before the first snowfall, on a sunny day.
How do I clean my Sun Dome? We suggest cleaning the Sun Dome with mild soap and water - dish or car wash soap work best. Test a small patch first to ensure the product you select works properly. Please note: do not use any oil-based products, as it will damage the vinyl. There are no cleaning requirements, however if there is lots of debris on your Sun Dome we suggest you clean it before storing.
What if my Sun Dome gets punctured or damaged? We supply a patch with every Sun Dome. However, if you need additional patch vinyl material, please contact us.
How do you take down a Sun Dome and store it? In order to take down the Sun Dome, simply unsnap the neoprene cords all the way around the pool and gently tug the cover up and over the frame. Make sure the cover is clean and dry prior to folding it for storage. It can be rolled up, similar to a sleeping bag and should be stored in a cool dry place when not in use. Also, cornstarch can be sprinkled between the folds of the vinyl to keep it from sticking together. If a dome cover is wet prior to storing it may turn milky white. However, this condition will clear up once the cover is back on the frame and exposed to sunlight.
Does my Sun Dome protect me from harmful UV Rays? While it is not intended for sun-protection, it will keep UV Rays out. You can get a slight tan with the dome on, but you will not get a sun burn.
