18' above ground, as listed in my signature. We get sun pretty much from sunup to 2:30. Before I consider solar panels, etc. I want to try the solar cover for two reasons:
1 - The cover might be just enough, although I'm reading they don't really add heat in as much as they retain heat. So, if the cover doesn't get it done, at least I have it to support the solar panel's efforts. Which brings me to my first question.
2 - is a solar cover and solar blanket the same thing, same purpose? I'm guessing the blanket can be dark, since it's probably used mostly at night.
3 - I'd like to take full advantage of the sun during the day, but retain that heat at night. Will a clear solar cover accomplish that? IF so, what thickness will allow sun in and retain heat at night?
