    Pool cover "flatness"?

    I spend about 15 minutes every time we pull the solar cover back on trying to flatten out all the air bubbles. Am I wasting my time? Does it really matter? Is my OCD hanging out again??

    Welcome to TFP!

    I stopped trying to do that after about 4-1/2 minutes the first time I out my cover on last spring. My pool is 89 degrees. Put your ocd back in your test kit.

    LOL! Just trying to squeeze every tenth of a degree out of the cold Michigan springs and falls! I should spend that 15 minutes drinking a beer I guess.

    That is a good goal! Warm water is better.
