Hi all great site you have here.
Just a few questions to start
I have a intex 15 x 48" AG pool. It is a bit cold. so i tied a few things but not sure if im doing them right or they just dont work. I have a solar blanket. Should it be left on when the sun is on the pool? Should i take it off during sunny days and put it back on during the evening. How do you tell when a solar blanket is no longer good.
I also tried a DIY solar panel. I used 1/2 " black flex tubing and coiled it up on a piece of 4x4 plywood and put it up on the roof. Theres about 200' of line coiled up. How huch flow should be running through it. It seems if i trickle it in it doesnt really do much. The water feels alot warmer but i think it is to little to make a difference.
The pool is shaded alot of the time. Sees sun from about 9 am till 2pm roughly. The solar pannel i made is in the sun from 7am till 5 pm.
ANy tips trick advice would be great
