  • SAVE ON HEATING COSTS: Sun2Solar clear solar blankets are made from a film of thousands of tiny bubbles, which work together to collect and retain heat in your pool at night and on those chilly days. The clear color allows the sun’s UV rays to penetrate deeper into your swimming pool for warmer water temperatures. Pay less and swim more.
  • MINIMIZE WATER EVAPORATION: The use of a solar cover helps in preventing up to 95% of pool water evaporation. When not enjoying a refreshing swim, keeping your pool covered lessens the vast amount of water lost into the environment. Fill up your swimming pool less and enjoy it more!
  • HEAT RETENTION: After everyone has called it a day with wrinkled fingers from too much fun in the sun, make sure to place this solar cover back atop the water. Don’t lose all of that warmth generated throughout the day when the sun sets. Assure your pool’s temperature does not drop too much by protecting it at night through use of a solar blanket.
  • JUMP INTO WARMTH: Show friends and family your bravery by jumping in without the standard toe dip. Enter the swimming pool confidently knowing the Sun2Solar solar cover has kept the water warm just for you. It’s easy to put on and take off allowing more time for showing off.
  • TRIM TO FIT: Your pool may be uniquely shaped and getting the right fit is as easy as finding a marker and sharp pair of scissors. Have the bubbles facing down to the water and trace a line on the cover showing where you should cut off the additional material. Do so confidently knowing this won’t affect the manufacturer’s warranty---they understand.

Top Tips for Southern California Theme Parks; Avoid Crowds and Save Money

If you're planning a trip to a Southern California theme park there are a few things you should consider before setting out.

(1) Its California, just count on traffic being bad. To avoid getting stuck in typical rush hour traffic (face it what time isn't rush hour in LA) think about setting out the night before. If you are able to stay the night in a motel close to the park you're going to be able to wake up and get into the park as soon as it opens, without having to park a million miles away, and without the stress of early morning traffic.

(2) Beat the crowds. The earlier you arrive at the park, the less people you have to compete with to get on rides. Being there early guarantees you more ride time, not only because you maximize your time in the park, but because other park goers still haven't arrived, meaning shorter lines.

(3) Buy your tickets online. If you want to save both time and money this is the best way to go. If you buy your tickets online you can avoid the lines at the gate. Most parks will also offer you discounts if you buy online, just make sure that you look carefully at what you're buying. Don't make the mistake of buying a 3 day pass if you're only going for one day. If you can plan a trip for 3-5 days make sure you get the deal you deserve, multiple days always cost less, plus you can get the Southern CA CityPass (www.disneyland.com) which gets you into Universal Studios Hollywood, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo or Wild Animal Park, and both Disney land and California Adventure.

(4) Be flexible. Some parks will offer vacation deals online, but you have to be willing to work around their availability.

(5) Check black out days for members. This is a great way to avoid crowds. Parks always give members certain days where they are not allowed to come to the park. These "Black-out Days" are the busiest days for the park, if you want to avoid crowds, avoid going on these days!

(6) Go during the week if you can. This obviously isn't an option for everyone, but it might be worth it to take a day off of work and go when the park will be empty verses going on the weekend and fighting crowds all day long, you'll end up enjoying your time at the park more.

(7) Pack your lunch. You can't take food or drinks into the park, but if you pack a cooler and leave it in the car you can save tons of money! All you have to do is get your hand stamped for re-entry before you go to your car.

(8) Save shopping until later. Most parks have their souvenir shops at the entrance. Don't fall into the trap and spend your time shopping, go get on those rides! The shops will be there on your way out, if you still have to have a memento from your day get it then.

(9) Sunscreen. In the Southern California sun this is NOT an option. Just do it, if you don't you'll be sorry the next day. Take a small tube into the park with you and reapply. Trust me; it's worth avoiding the pain.

(10) Dress for success. This means plan for any kind of weather. Wear a hat to block the sun, take sunglasses, comfy shoes for lots of walking, and a light jacket. Bring one backpack and either check it into lockers, which all parks have, or share the responsibility and trade off backpack duty.

(11) BONUS TIP! Don't forget the fast pass. Most parks offer some sort of line avoidance feature. You have to pay extra money for this so, decide if it's worth it to you. They work differently at different parks, sometimes you get a certain number of rides where you get head of line privileges, and some you make a reservation where you show up and get right on. Either way this option is only needed if you get to the park and realize that despite all of your planning, the park is still packed.

Have a great time!
