    Re: ABG wall insulation

    I'm sure someone else will be here with the exact figures but from what I am led to beleive, most heat loss is through evaporation. As you have a solar cover I can only think that you're either in a location that is very cold at night, or you are leaving your pump running at night which will cause the pool to cool down. I'm assuming you're solar system has a control unit.

    Yes I used the wall foam insulation as well as the foam cove and also put foam on bottom and it does seem to really help hold heat thru the night.
