    Question Phoenix hot pool

    we have a 9 X 18 above ground pool that gets too hot on summer afternoons up to about 95 degrees. i tried the fountain last year and it didnt help enough.(But maybe i didnt have enough volume through it. our bottom line question is, knowing that running the pump over night will get it cool enough, if we were to shade the pool and keep the sun off during the morning and early afternoon, would it keep it from heating up as much? i assume the shade would need to be at least a couple feet above the top of the pool.
    INTEX ABOVE GROUND 18x9 POOL 52" HEIGHT ~4500 GALLON
    SAND FILTER PUMP MOD. #SF90110T
    AVG SUMMER HIGH TEMP. 106F
    AVG SUMMER LOW TEMP. 85F

    Shade always helps, combined with the fountain and running your pump at night.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
