    Solar blankets 8-mil

    Are 8-mil solar blankets getting harder to find? I'm still looking.

    Where? They and their cousins 12 mil are definitely getting harder to find- everyone seems to be selling 14-16, which weigh a ton.

    This is where I found the 8-mil liner. The wife has no trouble winding up the 8-mil on the reel.

    Intheswim.com also carries the lighter weight clear bubble covers- I found in their catalog, though not on their website. I imagine you can call and ask.
