You asked me a lot of questions, but never answered the question that I asked. The question I asked is, my pool measures 18 x 36. What size pool cover do I need? Do I get one larger than the pool, or the same size as the pool?

FYI, if you know something is wrong with the pool and/or equipment and it isn't disclosed, when the new owners find out they will have recourse against you.

Yes. Trim the solar cover to fit inside the pool. It will float on top of the water. Any other type of cover will require some method of keeping it in place. You won't need to secure the solar cover. Just buy the cheapest cover you can find. I would go with 8 mil thickness.
