We have finally gotten out pool working (it is about 50 years old, hand dug by previous tenants) after 8 years in our house in not so sunny North of Scotland !
My pool is about 8 X 4 X 1.5 metres, has a dome pool cover and it heated using a stand alone gas combi boiler to a heat exchanger by the pool. Thermostat is set to around 28 degC.
My kids are at school so apart from the school holidays the pool is mainly used at weekends only and maybe the odd hour or two during weekdays after school.
I have no knowledge about solar covers but given my details above wondered if anyone could recommend a suitable cover.
The pool is a very unusual figure of 8/kidney bean shape so I think I will have to cut it to shape and install it by hand. IS an alternative to keep the cover in a rectangular shape and let it over hang over the side of the pool (or does it need to be a snug fit if you know what I mean).
Another problem I have is that there is a leak somewhere below the skimmer and return pipe. I think I know where it is but wondered how I can confirm the leak before I use the marine filler to seal it.
Many thanks in advance
