My water temperature is currently about 54 degrees and it looks like it might hit 80 degrees out tomorrow during the day. I was just wondering if I will gain more heat during the day taking the solar cover off and allowing the sun to fully penetrate or to leave the solar cover on and hope that it will heat up as well or better?
I am thinking that the evaporation that will occur will offset any heat gain I will get with the cover off but I am not certain.
Obviously this does not matter much but I am trying to get the water as warm as quickly as possible to try to extend my season since this is our first year with the pool and my 3 year old daughter really wants to swim!
Natural gas heater is in the works for next year, just not in the finances this year!
