Is there a quick guide, formula, or rule of thumb anywhere that would help with the timing of solar cover placement and removal?
I get that in general, taking the cover off in the daytime will allow the water to gain heat better, but what about in a dry climate where you have rapid evaporation? What temps/wind speeds/humidity ranges are best for off and on during the day?
I am in low 80's mid-day now, very low 50's at night. Humidity in the low 40% range and continuing to dry. wind varies but let's say none for now. water when I swim is at 72, but I have been leaving the cover on all the time. Oh and it is a "clear" one, not the darker blue version. Might have made a mistake there - next time.
Trying to make it into November, but it is getting hard to enter the water! I could do low 60's when I was young, but I am not that any more for sure!
