Looking for advice. I am concerned only with heat retention and keeping leaves and other dirt out of the pool. I have a wood burning stove that I use to heat my pool in the winter and I want to minimize heat loss. Options I am considering include: a solar blanket cut to size; automatic (or manual) cover with a track; oversized solar blanket attached or weighted down on all sides; and combinations thereof.
