Shade Balls are spheres that cover water surfaces. The transformation power of this technology offers innovative solutions for your needs.
Two are the main causes for water evaporation: temperature and superficial area.
Shade Balls help in the effective mitigation of those two causes at low cost.
The Shade Balls create a superficial floating layer covering 90% of the surface approximately. At the same time, the Shade Balls decrease UV rays going into the water, keeping the temperature, ans reducing the algae formation. Due to its spheric nature, the Shade Balls adapt to any water surface, independenly from its design and size. When the water level increases, the Shade Balls create again a simple layer in the surface.
