Please excuse my fat fingers typing on a small iphone screen
Last fall I bought a solar cover mostly to keep out leaves. It has been on all winter - we've been in the pool a few times this spring but I just dug it to the side and didn't get it all the way off. With the cover on my Stenner pump has been perfect at keeping the pool at 5 ppm chlorine.
On Saturday we had guest swimming so I took the cover off right and folded it up in the shed. My water temp was 88 Saturday afternoon. I thought I was putting the cover away until fall
I just checked the pool and my water has dropped to 79 and my chlorine is less then 1ppm.
I just turned the run time up on the stennar. I didn't realize ow much chlorine I was saving with the cover on, and 9 degrees in two days is much more then I expected.
Maybe the cover needs to come ack out until school is out and summer really starts. We can pull it to the side until then. Or maybe I need to buy a good reel to it so it isn't a project getting or all the way off.
