Hello everyone, I'm new here and new to pool ownership. We moved into a new house last summer with an inground pool. It is a figure 8 shaped pool with a shallow end and a deep end that goes to about 6 feet. We live in the Grand Rapids, MI area and the summers tend to be cooler here. The challenge is how to keep the pool warm here. It was difficult to keep it warm last summer. I am trying to prepare the best way to do it this summer. I have been looking into getting a solar cover and cutting it to fit. I will put a reel across the deep end and fold it in to reel it in (unless someone has another suggestion). We do have a brand new heater for the pool but would rather not run it a lot as the cost can be significant. I'm looking for some suggestions of what to do and what others do in these cooler climates to keep their pool as warm as possible. Any help I can get would be great!
