    Question about solar blankets and reels

    We are in search of a new solar cover for our pool to help more for heat retention then anything else.

    I've read that color and thickness does not play a huge roll as they all seem to go bad after a certain amount of time.

    We had a clear cover (12 or 16 mil) for the past 3 years and that seems to work ok, but never had a reel. I also read that a heavier blanket can cause some issues with the reel.

    We have a grecian style pool that is 17 by 34 1/2 feet.

    So with all of that said...

    1. recommendations on a blanket that isn't horribly expensive

    2. recommendations for a reel that would work for our style pool and isn't above $300

    3. Do you recommend getting a cover for the blanket while it is on the reel?

    4. If so, any recommendations a cover.

    Thanks so much!
