Pool Insulation Balls
The perfect solution to heated swimming pools and fish ponds
With todays ever increasing energy costs, the winter months can be expensive to keep your fish happy and healthy or your swimming pool functional. Euro-Matic have developed a simple but highly effective insulation cover that is easy to install.
By simply pouring a layer of Euro-matic Pool Insulation Balls onto the water surface, they effortlessly mould to any shape and form a practical and attractive cover over 91% of the surface area allowing oxygenation and thus prevent stagnation.
For fish such as Koi Karp, a cover in the winter months will help retain the heat and ensure they remain active rather than dormant. Because the balls simply move, the fish can easily be fed or viewed and fish that remain above 10°C will be active all year round so continue to grow and remain healthy, below 4°C it can be fatal. The balls are supplied in a translucent material so light will still pass though creating a well lit environment.
The frequent use of a pool cover throughout the year also significantly reduces evaporation by up to 50mm a week especially in windy conditions. Whilst every effort is taken during the construction of a pool to use the most efficient insulating materials, still up to 70% of its heat is lost from the surface open to atmosphere. A typical pool 6m x 10m heated to 25°C with an air temp of 18°C can lose 30,000 BTU’s per hour

“My fish are now more active and feeding as the water temperature is stabilising around 13°C. This means they will feed and therefore grow and will be saved from viral infections” Mike Koi Karp owner November 2016
Low Maintenance and easy to install
Building structures for ponds and swimming pools can also be time consuming, costly and unsightly, there is nothing simpler than pouring a bag of balls on in the winter months and then simply scooping them off in the summer with a net and storing the bag until next winter in your garage. There is no comparison to the overall look of our solution versus other homemade options.
