    Hello from Upland, CA 80 degrees in February! What's going on?

    Hi there, Jonathan here. I have a 26,000 IG 16x32' metal enclosed pool (thick galvanized I think?). We've replaced two vinyl soft liners since we've been at this residence. I'm here to look for some advice on replacing an existing (but weathered) automatic pool cover. It seems like there...
