Will a solar blanket increase the water temperature the same as a heater?

Short answer: Nope

A solar blanket/covers are a great addition to add a few degrees to the temperature of your water, however, it does not increase the temperature in as many increments as a gas or electric heater does.

Solar blankets are great to help hold heat in your pool at night, which over time, will allow the temperature to rise slowly but surely.

Solar covers are a necessity when heating a pool with any other type of heater to help maintain the temperature, and cut down on heating costs.
