I know that the topic of solar covers has been covered here quite a few times, but my situation is a little different and I'd appreciate some insight.
Im in the North East. At first I didn't even consider a solar cover because I didn't think that I'd actually put it on and off each day. Now, I'm leaning towards getting one simply because the pool isn't as warm as I'd like it (despite recently having a solar system installed).
First question - this is a vacation home. Aside from maybe 2-3 times during the summer when we'll spend a week out here, we're only here for the weekends. Can the cover stay on during the week? I seem to recall reading that it was bad to leave it on for an extended time (more than a couple of days) but I searched and can't find that thread.
Also, the pool is an irregular shape. I am going to post an image. I understand that it is recommended to buy a rectangular shaped cover and cut it. How many individual sections would you suggest? I'm thinking 2-3 plus 1 for the spa.
