I am on my 2nd solar cover in 4 years. I have a 21 ft above ground radiant pool, which gets almost all sun from 10 am to 6 pm.
The first cover was a heavy blue solar cover. within 2-3 years the bubbles just fell right off and ended up in my sand filter.
We then bought a replacement cover 2 years ago, this time a clear, light weight cover.
Within the last week the bubbles are just falling off in certain spots and the seam of the cover is coming apart.
While SWMBO was convinced it was from pulling the cover on and off the pool and rubbing up against the coping clip.
I am of the believe that the combo of the sun and chlorine just destroys the cover.
Is there a way to prevent this destruction?
Is there a way to prolong the life of a solar cover?
Or is this just the cost of owning a pool that gets full sun?
