In reading through the posts, it seems most people find solar covers a great way to save energy on pool heating and keep the pool cleaner with less debris. We're putting in a new gunite pool about 20' x 40' and the house will have weekly renters during the summer. I can't see renters wrestling with a big ungainly cover so I'm interested in solutions that will retract automatically. Looked at CoverStar but they're pretty pricey and they're not really a solar cover.
Help and suggestions appreciated!
