I'm new here and a new pool owner. My pool details are in my signature. The superintendent from my PB recomended a solar cover to extend/maximize my swimming season. I am wondering what the feasability (both economically and practically) of achieving year-round swimming would be, and how much a solar cover would help me achieve that goal.
Basically, with a solar cover, do I have any chance of keeping my pool water around say 70 - 75 degrees when its 50 degrees outside without running the heater constantly and/or say I was planning on swimming 3 times a week in the winter, could I keep the pool at 6o degrees and then just raise it to 70 on a timer, or would the up and down cause problems?
