First year using a cover and it works very well. Live in TN (where it's hot and humid!), but have a fair amount of shade that creates the need for using the cover. The question is while on vacation if it's ok, for the water and the pool in general, to leave the cover on during an extended period (a wk or so). Typically I leave the cover on overnight and remove it in the morning to allow for natural heating, cleaning/skimming, and lets the pool 'breath' a little; then recover at the end of the day.
I just don't want to come back to a problem with the water or a bad smell from the water being covered for that period of time. The pump will run daily via timer.
Any thoughts or experiences........
