    What's your current pool temp?

    Solar cover off for 2 weeks, pool was up to 86-88 the last 3 days, woke up this morning to 80, filled 1 inch with tap water and water still climbed to 84 already. Last year it barely hung at 80. I wish I could go in, but not today :(

    Mesh cover for above ground pool?

    Does anyone use a mesh cover for an above ground pool? I wanted to use one, but none of the local stores carry them. I'll have to order it online and I guess I'm wondering if they don't carry it for a reason..... Thoughts? Thanks!

    I want the cya up, but I thought I had to wait up to 5 days to "see" it all....should I put more in without waiting? I guess I got confused on that one :hammer: (If it matters, I used the sock method)
