    Should I stress over air pockets after installing solar blanket?

    I just trimmed installed a solar blanket over my kidney pool leaving a little extra on each end so it can fold up. However this creates wrinkles I. The middle and now matter how I brush it out the air pockets doesn't go away.

    That is nothing to worry about. It will flatten out after a couple of days in the sun. And in any case the air bubbles don't hurt anything.
