My builder says more and more people are not using covers anymore except for winter (we are in Canada. pool season is about May-October). I am wondering if that is true or if we should be getting a cover to use daily?
Many people use a solar cover daily in the shoulder months to help prevent heat loss due to evaporation. Its not necessary unless that’s something that interests u. There are auto covers as well. Personal preference really. Do u get alot of debris? I personally don’t wanna fool w/ a cover daily & i also wanna look out @ my sparkly TFP water as much as possible
It really come down to what the cover is needed for. Solar covers are what they're called. It'll retain some heat for overnights and on cloudy days. If you really want to swim in the shoulder seasons and want to heat the pool and sort of seal in the heat you just paid for I'd recommend an automatic cover such as one made by cover pools albeit expensive. With the auto cover you also get easier maintenance since everything lands on the cover and not in the pool thus keeping the water much cleaner with less debris. Rain also has no effect cuz it sits on top and gets pumped off and doesn't mix with the perfect pool water.
