We are having an auto cover installed in the next couple of weeks. The track is on top of the pool lip, underneath the coping stones, which puts it about six inches above the water level.
Is it necessary to have everything out of the water when I close the cover? I would like to leave a wireless floating thermometer in the water if I can - it sticks up out of the water about an inch to an inch and a half. What about anything else that might be floating in the pool?
