    solar cover under loop loc

    has anyone left their solar blanket under the loop loc mesh cover during winter season? after closing, sometimes in oct. we could have an indian summer here in ny & heat wave in april, which will accelerate algae build-up. blocking the sun penetrating the mesh cover will slow down this process? just a thought. any sound ideas out there to share is appreciated.

    There are black covers made for that very purpose, although I can't recall where I've seen them right now. I'm not sure a transparent or semi-transparent cover woul be much help with algae.
