I am planning to order a solar cover and reel to try to increase total swim time by a couple of weeks at least. I am in the Atlanta GA area and have not seen this addressed before. I am wondering when should I plan to start utilizing the solar cover to actually benefit from any temperature increase? My pool is not covered nor closed. I have kept it open this Winter.
I am not certain of the current water temperature, other than the fact that it is very COLD. My thermometer bit the dust back in January when I had about 2 inches of ice covering most of the pool (stayed open!).
Any suggestions, information will be greatly appreciated.
