Interested in your experience.
I have spent the past week trying to clear up an algae bloom. It has now occurred to me that my solar cover could be contaminated with algae. I used it the week I discovered the problem.
I use my cover only in the spring and fall. I put it on at night to stop the radiational cooling and keep my day warmed water in. I have a screened cage around my pool without a lot of deck space. In the morning i move the lounge chairs out of the way, pull the cover out of pool and fold in an acordian pattern then roll it up and put in a storage box outside my screen.
Could my cover be the problem? Is there where I got the algae from? Is algae growing on the cover in the box? I have no place to let the cover dry completely before putting it away and I always try to keep it out of the sun when not in use.
