yup, blanket goes on every night.

Casa advised me to pull it back for a few hours every 2-3 days if not used just to let the pool 'breath' (it was more technical that that)

Not to mention chemicals...you'll use much less acid/chlorine using a cover

as I say I havent read it, its far too early
I thought about that but on the other hand, I only have the house 3 weeks the pool is cold and there have been a few days that I have had the AC on.

I'm not suggesting that it would be something that would be used in the summer but if I'm going to purchase a heater for the pool it would be nice to get the benefit of free AC when you need it

Seems like the high cost for such a system wouldn't be justified by the very rare instances in the winter when you actually need the A/C on. Most people leave the A/C off between Nov-April. I have a neighbor on the other hand that has his A/C on when it's only 75 degrees out!!!! Apparently he's not aware that the windows open in his house
