Hi all, just found this very informative forum, this is my first post.
The width of my (new) pool (still being built) will be 14'3" x 26'10". The pool is a perfect rectangle, so no fancy cuts are necessary. Solar covers come in 14' width and 15' width. I can buy the 15' size and trim it, but since it's only a 3" gap, I thought it might be easier to just buy the 14' knowing how closely it would fit (and no risk of mistakes during cutting). Will that 1.5" gap on each side significantly reduce its effectiveness? Is it also possible that there's a little bit of extra width on the 14' version? What would you do?
