    Which pool cover is the best to reduce chlorine loss?

    I had been using the 3 year typical life "blue" bubble cover but most recently bought a longer life (5-7 year) clear cover and it is holding up fairly well after 2 years in northern California. Is the one any better than the other for loss of chlorine? Has anyone ever measured this with instruments? I am more concerned about water loss (evaporation) and Chlorine loss during the Summer than heating the pool here in draught country. The pool cover is a real saver on evaporation of water. I am losing almost no water with the cover on vs. 1/8-1/4" per day during the Summer with the cover off.

    Probably the blue cover will save more than the clear as far as FC loss is concerned. The clear will let more UV rays thru.
    I use a clear cover and the FC loss is minimal. 😎
