Hi, since our pool temp dipped into the 60's I've started to use our solar cover to see if I could stabilize the temp, and it seems to be working.
It seems with the cover on I have a lot more vacuuming to do on Saturday's. My theory is that with the cover on the skimmer doesn't take care of floating leaves, so the leaves go in the gaps between the cover and side wall and eventually sink to the bottom. Is this one of the tradeoffs of rocking a solar cover?
Also, the cover is clear with bubbles on one side. From doing a search it seems I should have the bubbles down, is that correct? I have the opposite right now.
Are there good techniques for rolling/un-rolling the cover to keep leaves from getting in the pool? I have a reel and the width of my cover is about 4" less than the width of the pool, and the length could cover over-lap the edges if I so desired. Right now when I roll up the cover I make sure the skimmer is running and I'm raking the leaves that fall.
