I have another question for the pros ).
What type of solar cover do you guys recommend? There are a ton of different types, by that I mean clear, blue/clear, blue. round, diamond shaped bubbles, some backed with a reflective material and so on. I have read a ton of reviews on them and most seem to do the same job according to those. They swing in price pretty heavy too, but the cheap ones were getting as good of reviews as the expensive ones. I would prefer something tougher that will last, not a use it and trash it type.
I am looking for one that will help raise the temp of my pool mostly. Although it would also help keep out leave and bugs hopefully.
Also, our pool is 18' round should i go bigger and use it like a normal cover and wrap it around or trim it to fit the exact size. That is what most people in the reviews say they are doing, but I trust the judgment here more than random people giving reviews.
I guess what im asking from you all is, what is the best type to get and how much should i pay to get a good one. If you could recommend a site to order it from that would be awesome, I am hours away from a bigger city so ordering online is easier for me.
Thanks again for the help)
