I just purchased a new solar blanket and cut it into 3 sections for my free form pool. I didn't get a reel because of the pool shape and no place to put it. So I've been putting it on/off manually. So far it's working out ok. Really saves on heat loss! Probably takes about 10 minutes to take off and 15 minutes to put back on.
My question is what do to with it while it's off. The instructions say to keep it out of the sun and not over 120 degrees. I was thinking of one of those deck storage boxes (Suncast). That would certainly keep it out of the sun. But would it get too hot in there? Anyone else use these for storage of their solar blanket while not in use?
