Anyone got some good tips on keeping a cover on a rolled-up solar cover?
Our pool is slightly free-form and the deck has a one-step riser near the deep end. Because of that, our solar cover reel (a Rocky's Rollers model) straddles the pool, about 5 feet from the edge of the deep end. It's easier to just keep the reel there, even when we're swimming, unless we're having a lot of people over.
The only problem is keeping that thin white plastic sheet on top of the rolled-up cover. The slightest breeze picks up the edge and flings it back off of the cover. Since the reel stretches across the water, I can't go around and tuck it in or clip it together. Last season I tried putting binder clips on the edges of the white plastic sheet, which worked OK but left rust marks on the white sheet. Maybe someone else here has a trick that works?
