I'm a new pool owner who has been using a solar cover for less than a week, but I'm having some problems. The problems are compounded by the fact that the pool is on top of a (small) mountain and it can get pretty windy, and it's also a weekend home so we're not there during the week.
I put the cover in place last weekend, but because of the pool shape and the size of the cover that I could get my hands on, the cover is made up 3 separate pieces. I put it on last Sunday and when I went up to check on it yesterday, most of the cover was bunched up in a "pile" in the middle of the pool.
I separated the pieces and layed them back out as smooth as I could, and tried to hold down the seams with brushes and nets, but I'm fearful that I'll end up with a bunched up mess again. (I tried using the brushes to hold them down before and it didn't work so well.)
Here's a picture of what it looked like last night after I made my adjustments to let you know what my starting point:
What am I doing wrong and are there tricks I can use to keep the pieces flat on the surface for 5 days unattended?
