Solar Pill®

The majority of daily heat loss is due to evaporation. AquaPill SolarPill minimizes heat loss by forming an ultra-thin, invisible barrier on the water’s surface to reduce evaporation. Its patented delivery system gradually releases the formula into the filtration system to allow for optimum coverage. SolarPill can be used with ALL types of sanitizers.

  • * Easy to use; simply place in skimmer; automatically dispenses the formula for optimum coverage
  • * Forms an ultra-thin invisible barrier on the surface of the water that reduces heat and chemical loss by reducing water evaporation
  • * Helps extend your swimming season
  • * Lasts up to one month


Small pill treats up to 15,000 gal, large pill treats up to 30,000 gal.


  1. Determine the number of SolarPill capsules needed according to pool size. 1 pill per 1,000 sq. ft. (93 sq. m.) of surface area or 30,000 gallons (114,000 L).

  2. Shake well before using. Remove the blue piercing tool from the package. Separate the blue piercing tool from the push- pin. Place the pointed end of the blue- piercing tool into the recessed area of the cap. Holding the capsule, firmly press the blue piercing tool against a hard surface, (wooden deck or concrete pad) until the piercing tool punches through the plastic cap. Remove the blue piercing tool. Hold the capsule over the open skimmer. Using the supplied white push- pin, pierce one indent only.

  3. With the pump running, place capsule(s) in skimmer and allow liquid to dispense. Do not place in skimmer with chlorine tablets.

  4. Remove SolarPill capsule after 4-6 hours or when the color turns clear, and discard in trash. It is suggested that you run the pump for at least 8 hours daily for proper circulation.
