Electric poolcovers including solar heating 



We, Ivica Miskovic (industrial foreman) and Dr. Martin Thoma (Systems Analyst / Developer), founded our business out of dedication to our products. We both run an outdoor pool and are familiar with the problem that pools without a cover cool down during the night, have to be heated in spring and autumn and a lot of water evaporates during the day. It was obvious to develop a suitable pool cover that solves these problems and can be easily extended and retracted electrically. In over 3 years of development, we have developed a product that meets all the requirements for durability and quality. This guarantees that SOLAR-POOL-COVER gives you the same benefit and pleasure as it does us.

12. Note on the disposal of used batteries
The following notice is aimed at those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and no longer resell them in the form delivered to them (end users):
1. Free return of used batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return old batteries so that they can be disposed of correctly. You can hand in used batteries at a municipal collection point or at your local store. As a battery distributor, we are also obliged to take back old batteries, although our take-back obligation is limited to used batteries of the type that we carry or have carried as new batteries in our range. You can therefore return used batteries of the type mentioned above to your seller free of charge.
2. Meaning of battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed out wheelie bin. This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 percent by mass of mercury, more than 0.002 percent by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004 percent by mass of lead, the chemical name of the pollutant used is located under the garbage can symbol - where "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb " stands for lead, and "Hg" stands for mercury."
