So just cut the pool cover, works great at retaining heat, one issue, how are you all dealing with the spa spill over cycle? I have a raise spa so the water fall pours on top of the cover. I guess I could cut out the section where the water fall hits the pool but won't this negate having the cover? What are you all doing.

Thx

Can you turn the spill over off (valves?) during periods that the cover is on?? I'm assuming you're taking the cover off daily? Or at least folding that area back during the day and letting the spa spillover work at least briefly during the day so that no stagnant water sits in the spillover line.

Agreed, I would cut way back on spillover mode to avoid heat loss and pH rise. Maybe 10 or 20 min to mix it up a bit.
