Is a clear or blue solar cover better?
There is no clear consensus on which type of solar cover is better. Some people prefer clear solar covers because they are easier to see in the sun, while others find them more difficult to clean.
Should I cover my inground pool every night?
Covering your pool nightly with a pool cover can reduce evaporation and help to keep it cooler in the summer months.
Does thickness of pool solar cover matter?
There is no definitive answer to this question as it largely depends on the specific pool solar cover that you are considering. Generally speaking, thicker solar covers will absorb more heat, so if you are looking for a cover that will keep your pool cooler in the summer months, a thicker cover may be a better option.
How long can solar cover stay on pool?
Solar cover can stay on a pool for up to three years, depending on the climate.
