    Solid and liquid solar cover

    I have a kidney shaped pool. I was going to use a rectangular solar cover, which would leave parts uncovered. Is their an advantage to adding the liquid solar cover to it, in essence to "cover" the area not covered by the solar cover?

    Welcome to TFP!

    You could do that and things would improve by some tiny percentage, but most people wouldn't consider it worth the effort/cost.

    There are a few threads here that discuss the liquid solar cover. You might want to search for them and read them. But, my recollection of them is not particularly favorable. I tried it a few years ago and was not impressed.
