We are still looking it what may work best . Advice? info is all ways welcome . thanks
Any time you're heating the pool, you're losing temperature very fast via evaporation. The solar cover is used whilest heating to keep the pool's evaporation rate down, which in turn will reduce temperature loss via evaporation, reducing the out of pocket cost of heating - and you can lose a LOT of your heat this way.

During fall/spring, and sometimes summer, in high humidity areas, the solar cover can be used at night for the same reason when you're having cooler nights but warm days to help retain the warmth the sun put into your pool during the day.

The main takeaway here is that if I'm running my pool heater, my solar cover is on the pool if I'm not using it to speed up the process of heating and save me money. :)

Texas or Pat i cant say it enough times how much help i have had here all ready . TFP = stress free for me . I would not have even tried the things i have done in the last 5 months . TFP gave me the tools and support to do it Those badges cant say how much i appreciate this site and all the people here. Besides the money i have saved its the least i could do. I just hope i can help out too.
