In fact any self built canopy
Thinking of something cheap to keep the air slightly warmer than outside and a less temp reduction.

Re: Anyone Use a Pollytunnel canopy for their ABG?

Here's my brand new luxury pool enclosure! The temperature outside has been pretty rubbish (low to mid 60'sF) and wet. We've been in the pool most days in the last week. Pool temp doesnt drop as much as solar blanket only and the air inside heats up nicely with only a bit of sun.
Cost? £150 including delivery (about $250).

That looks like the floating row cover that I bought for my tropical plants. Different weights claim to maintain about 4 to 8 degrees warmer in side and allow 65 to 90% of sunlight depending on weight. It comes in mostly 6' widths but some places offered 15' or more.

That cover is a great idea! I've been looking for ideas to cover my round agp, with 110 degree summers and mossies that want all your blood it would be awesome to cover it like that, keep out some bugs some sun awesome! Now to find details on a round one so I can get it planned for next year!

Dale, it probably would be about 150 degrees under there in the middle of Houston summer. Like being in a parked car with the windows up.

We don't all live in the desert!! :)
I wonder if this might be an idea to share with those who have 'real' in ground pools?
Admininstrators... would be interesting to know if you can provide an idea as to where everyone is located. Seems to be just me and teapot from the UK.
