Hidden Out of Sight


Saving water and energy, these pool covers are attractively hidden out of sight

Kirsty and Jesse’s backyard in The Block 2021 was the biggest space of all the properties. This also meant it had to be perfectly executed in order to compete with the other contestants. The couple chose to install a Sunbather pool cover because of its high quality and durability, as well as the fact it is easily out of sight when not in use, making the pool area stylish and aesthetically pleasing.

Sunbather’s Downunder rollers are out of sight and out of mind. The roller mechanism as well as the cover is hidden in a cavity and covered by a lid. The lid closes flush with the deck when the cover is retracted and also when it’s fully extended over the pool. It’s super easy to use, with one person being able to operate it from a stand-up position.

For superior heat retention, The Block contestants opted for Sunbather’s thermal pool covers. Thermal covers are longer-lasting than other covers and require less maintenance. They’re made from a high-quality, multi-layered foam material that keeps the pool warmer and cleaner. An unheated pool can lose twice its entire volume of water each year. A thermal cover saves 90 per cent of this water.

Pool covers save water, energy and money and over a period of time they pay for themselves. They’re also now mandatory for new pools that are heated with a gas heater or heat pump.
As well as pool covers, Sunbather also specialises in solar pool heating, heat pumps, gas heating, commercial covers and rollers and commercial pool heating.

The company is committed to Australian manufacturing. Sunbather was a pioneer in the solar pool heating industry, starting in 1974 and becoming one of the largest suppliers of pool heating and pool covers for pools of all sizes. The company is consistently acknowledged by the industry for quality and ingenuity through awards of recognition.
