Pool Dome

Pool tent providing warm water

Can’t summer last long enough for you? Extend your swimming season with the swimming pool tents and domes from SunnyTent! The SunnyTent is a pool dome that keeps the water clean and warm. The tent canvas of the SunnyTent is made of a foil that is used in horticulture. In these greenhouses, the temperature reaches around 25 °C between April and September as the sun heats the greenhouse. This is also the case with the SunnyTent, so you can swim in warm water without any energy costs. Enjoy warm and clean swimming water from spring to autumn.

The SunnyTent is available in different models and sizes. We have a pool dome that fits your pool and your garden. The round SunnyTent is particularly suitable for round and smaller rectangular pools, while the oval SunnyTent is suitable for rectangular and larger pools. Check out our size chart and find out which SunnyTent pool dome fits your pool or hot tub.

Pool tent, what are the features?

If you love swimming, then a pool in your garden is essential. Are you going for a simple inflatable pool, an above-ground pool, or an inground pool? You will encounter the same problems in all the different swimming pools. Namely, that the water gets dirty, leaves, insects, and bird droppings get into it. So you are cleaning the pool more often than you enjoy swimming. Another problem can be that the swimming water can be very cold, there are several solutions for this but they absorb energy. The best solution to keep your pool water clean and warm at the same time is the SunnyTent!

What protection does a pool tent offer?

A swimming pool dome provides protection for the pool itself and protects the pool water. The pool dome also ensures that the outside of the pool stays clean and is not easily broken. The SunnyTent stands approximately 40 cm around the pool, so you still have room to walk. In addition, the pool tent protects against wind, rain, light hail, etc. so that you can just keep on swimming. Perfect, right? The SunnyTent protects in many weather conditions, but watch out for the sun. The SunnyTent itself is UV-resistant, but it does let UV rays through. This means that your skin is not protected, although there is a slight slowing down of the rays. So be careful and apply sunscreen.

Which size SunnyTent for your pool?

Do you have a beautiful pool in your backyard, but is the water always cold and does dirt easily get into the pool water? The SunnyTent pool dome is your solution! But what size pool dome fits over your pool? And what do you need to pay attention to? Here are a few tips on choosing the right size SunnyTent.

  • The SunnyTent needs space. Allow at least 25 cm of free space around the tent and at least 40 cm at the back (for opening the tent).
  • Take the outside measurements of your pool and measure the maximum distance.
  • Does your pool have a top edge, skimmer, or other protruding parts? Include these in your calculation so that they also fit into the SunnyTent.
  • If your pool is not listed in the size chart, please select a slightly larger pool size from the table. Not sure? Please contact our customer service.

How to set up your pool dome

The installation of the SunnyTent pool dome is slightly different for each size of the tent. This is because, for example, the SunnyTent size XL has more poles than size M, and therefore a pole set must be placed in the tunnel double. Many steps are the same for the different sizes of SunnyTents. If you are looking for a specific action, take a look at our manual and the instruction videos.

  • Place 2 locking pegs in a straight line, at the correct distance from each other (this differs per tent).
  • Replace the 2 locking pegs with the hinged anchors, driving them straight into the ground until the pins touch the ground.
  • Unfold the tent foil. Slide the poles into the connectors. Make sure the poles slide into the tunnels for each individual sheet of foil.
  • Now position the SunnyTent between the two hinged anchors. Place the pole sets on the pins of the hinged anchor. Make sure that the pole sets are placed completely over the pins.
  • Pull the SunnyTent up until it forms a complete circle/oval. Shake the SunnyTent both horizontally and vertically at the same time. This distributes the tent foil well between the poles.
  • Secure the tent with the twisting pegs. Be careful not to damage the foil.
  • Attach the guy line and you can open the SunnyTent by 2/3 or completely.

How to maintain your pool tent

Are you already using the SunnyTent and enjoying warm, clean water every year? Then it’s just a matter of maintaining the pool tent so that it can be set up again next year. In addition to the maintenance of the pool tent, the maintenance of the pool water is also important. We would like to give you some tips on how to extend the life of your SunnyTent. When your SunnyTent is up in the summer, it is important to clean the outside from time to time. This keeps the tent nice and clean. In this way, the tent foil cannot be damaged either, provided that you immediately remove any dirt such as bird droppings. You can leave the SunnyTent size M and L outside for winter. This does require extra maintenance of the pool tent. Are you planning to store the pool tent? Smart choice! By storing your SunnyTent, you don’t run the risk of it getting dirty or taking off during a storm. This way you can be sure that next summer you will be able to swim in the SunnyTent again!

Cleaning the pool dome

How do you clean your SunnyTent pool dome properly? If the SunnyTent is left outside for a long time, there is a chance that the exterior may become dirty with dust, sand, or green stains. Of course, you don’t want this! So clean the pool dome regularly with a soft sponge and lukewarm water. Do not use a hard brush or scrub pad to keep the foil scratch-free. Do not add detergents to the water used for cleaning, as they can damage the seams. Is the tent very dirty? Add some green soap to the water. Time to clean the tent! Close and secure the pool dome with the pegs. You can clean the two lower tent sections at the front and back. The top two sections in the middle can be cleaned by opening the pool dome 2/3.

The pool dome is clean and transparent again. But what about the pool water? It is important to keep the water truly clean by using chlorine and the correct pH value. A pool filter pump can help. Green pool water? Read our tips and make the water clear again!

The SunnyTent pool dome cover is made entirely of European materials. The tent fabric is made of three-layer PE foil, which is fused into one piece. This thick foil is also used in professional horticulture. The poles are made of 12.7 mm thick and strong fiberglass. Because the poles are made of fiberglass, they are slightly flexible and can also bend. Is it time to replace a part? Or is a specific part of the SunnyTent broken? The parts of the pool tent are all available separately in our shop. From a new pole set and swimming pool dome cover to pegs and a hinged anchor, all parts are available.

 

Frequently asked questions about pool domes

 

A pool dome over your outdoor pool has many advantages. The biggest advantage is that the water is heated by UV rays, so you can swim in warm water from spring to autumn. In addition, the sun heats the water in your pool for free, so there are no high energy costs! The SunnyTent pool tent also ensures that no dirt gets into the water. This means the water stays cleaner longer and you don't have to change it as often. Make sure you check the pH and chlorine levels regularly so that the water stays really clean.
Setting up the pool dome is slightly different for each size of SunnyTent. For example, the XL SunnyTent has more poles than the M, which means that a double pole must be inserted into the tunnel. So if you are looking for a manual specifically for a certain size of pool dome, check out our instruction videos and/or manuals. In general, these steps are the same for all tents:
  • Place 2 locking pegs in a straight line, at the correct distance from each other (this differs per tent).
  • Replace the 2 locking pegs with the hinged anchors, driving them straight into the ground until the pins touch the ground.
  • Unfold the tent foil. Slide the poles into the connectors. Make sure the poles slide into the tunnels for each individual sheet of foil.
  • Now position the SunnyTent between the two hinged anchors. Place the pole sets on the pins of the hinged anchor. Make sure that the pole sets are placed completely over the pins.
  • Pull the SunnyTent up until it forms a complete circle/oval. Shake the SunnyTent both horizontally and vertically at the same time. This distributes the tent foil well between the poles.
  • Secure the tent with the twisting pegs. Be careful not to damage the foil.
  • Attach the guy line and you can open the SunnyTent by 2/3 or completely.
