    Liquid solar cover results tend to range from lackluster to worthless. I have tried a couple in my pre-TFP days and never noticed a measurable difference.

    My opinion: save your money.

    Just imagining how it must work makes my skin crawl. If I understand it, doesn't it put a thin oily coat on the surface of the water to increase the surface tension and reduce evaporation?

    I just don't want to dive through that....y'know?

    It is not oil it is an alcohol based coating. So, not so gross. But, still doesn't work very well. Even in texas. Tried it my first fall and installed solar panels not long after.
