    How to properly put away a solar cover?

    Hey all, I did a search but didn't find anything. I need to leave my solar cover/banket off for a few weeks and I was thinking that leaving it rolled up and covered with the uv tarp will encourage mold and algae to grow. So I've spread it out over my pool fence to dry before I fold it up and store it in my garage. However, even after a hot day in the sun, I am seeing moisture in just about every "bubble" in the cover. Is it safe to store it like this? Is there a way to get that moisture out? Is there anything else I should do before I put it away?

    That's how I store mine and it hasn't caused a problem yet. Just let it dry the best it can and cover it up.
