    Cleaning Solar Cover

    I think our solar cover was a major source of the difficulty I had passing the OCLT after having passed it a few days earlier. I suspect that algae was starting to bloom, and it didn't help that I kept the pool covered the entire week, although I was monitoring my FC levels and shocking to try to get past the OCLT. The cover is on a reel. Is there a good way to really clean it? I don't have a concrete deck, but I was thinking of unrolling it on my lawn and really hosing it down with water and bleach. But I am concerned that will ultimately result in adding more junk to the pool after I roll the cover back up and the unroll it on my pool.

    I'd bring the pool to shock level and put the cover on and sink it the best you can with a brush or vacuum head for a few hours.
