We just purchased a solar cover for our pool after mice destroyed the one we stored for the winter in my mom's shed. We have a free form pool so I purchased a rectangular shaped cover and plan to trim. We laid it out over the pool for three days and then did a "rough" trim. I could have sworn that I read somewhere that you should let your cover sit for two weeks before doing a final fitted trim but now I cannot find that. Does anyone know if that is the case or are we ok to go ahead and do the final cut?
Also, we are interested in a reel for the cover but can't believe how they range from $250 to $1500. Such a difference! Any recommendations or things we need to consider when purchasing?
