The ways I put on my solar cover
#1 The kite method
I get my kids,wife,neighbor,dog, neighbors dog or whoever and we each take an end and run like **** towards the pool. If we get it right and with just the right amount of wind it may land on top of the pool!
#2 The push and pull
Get the giant bubble wrap and roll it onto the water then everyone pushes and pulls on it from the sides to try and spread it out nicely.
#3 The jump in (this one is the easiest if you feel like going in)
Toss that plastic blob on top of the water jump in spread it around swim underneath it like a trapped seal under ice and get out.
