    Solar cover with vacuum running

    Looking into picking up a solar cover for our pool, but we have a built in vacuum that goes daily. It occurred to me that this might pull the cover around as it moves. Anyone have any experience with this, and if it is a problem, any solutions? Thanks for the help

    Solar cover with vacuum running

    Is it an inground pool? You could get the little plastic clips that hold a solar cover to a reel and use them to keep it stretched over the pool with bungee cords or something.
    It may still interfere with the vacuum though.

    Welcome to TFP!

    I've been using my vacuum and solar cover for over 4 years and never experienced a problem. The pool cover fits against the pool walls and the hose just glides under the cover.
