I'm a pool newbie, and am somewhat disappointed in the temperature of my pool so far. I have a nice, 12 mil solar cover, and paid extra for the blue/black option. I think it does a good job keeping heat in at night, but I think there is minimal temperature gain during the day.
I have a 18x33 oval above ground pool that gets 8+ hours of sun, and it's only 82 degrees. I've been leaving the cover on at all times when I'm not using it, but I'm beginning to think that's wrong.
Does anyone pull the cover off during the day? I know I'll use more chlorine, but I'm ok with that. My liner is royal blue, if that helps.
