My inground pool is around 16x40 and I live in NJ and want to get about a 5-7 degree bump up. This is my first season with the pool but lately at night it gets down to 58-60 so in the morning the pool is around 78-79. My pool is a lagoon style and I am contemplating first getting a solar blanket to see how much that helps, before considering a couple solar panels. I know it won't raise the temp that much but it all helps. Especially when I have quite a few treees in the back yard so bugs and dirt getting in pool are another issue I'm hoping the blanket will help with. Can you guys recommend one and how would I go about getting it custom sized to my pool? Do I have to go back to the company who originally installed the pool 10 years ago? Or Can I send my measurements out and have one made? Will I need a reel also? I remember I had one on my above ground pool years ago it was 12x12x4 and it actually really helped, but within 1-2 seasons it was falling apart.
Thanks for your help
