    Re: solar covers, the small ones

    I haven't seen that specific brand before, but generally the small round covers that you use several of don't have a very good track record. They don't cover the entire pool, so are less efficient than a regular solar cover. They tend to blow around and stack up on top of each other. And it can be annoying to fish the last few out of the pool.
