So I have just completed the baqua conversion and my pool life is beginning to look up! I do have a few questions about my solar cover though and I am hoping someone will be able to give some clarification...
1) Bubbles down, correct?
2) Due to neglect, frusteration, never ending algae with baquacil use, etc. my solar cover is in less than perfect shape and I am wondering if there is a point where a solar cover is no longer serving its function? I have left my solar cover in the pool during a couple winters and it seems like the bubbles aren't all holding air anymore. Furthermore, it has been caked with algae several times since and it seems like algae has even possibly gotten into the bubbles. Yesterday, I scrubbed, as well as pressure washed both sides with bleach. It looks pretty good, but some sections definitely look more beat up than when I intially bought my house and used the cover my first year.
3) Should I leave the cover on at all times while I am not in the pool?
4) Does having the cover on decrease the amount of FC consumed by sunlight?
I think that's it for now. Thanks guys!
