I have a solar cover, but it was not used.

The solar cover's supposed to keep it warm, right? Do they sell covers to keep the sun off your pool and keep the water cool?

How deep is the pool, and did you also measure closer to the bottom?

rjmacs, as far as I know, only designed to keep heat in.

JoeH, 52 inch deep, thermometer tied to steps, so very close to top.

This was just after shade hit it this evening, as I'm vacuuming it.

That temperature does not sound very refreshing.

Exactly, heat warning is over as of 8 PM tonight, that should allow it to cool a few degrees before I get out of work tomorrow.

Here in Michigan. We decided to leave the solar cover off for the last few weeks. Got home to find the pool at around 95 degrees!!! BLAH... 80-85 is perfect on a hot day IMO.

Uncle Art: "Maude, are the steaks ready yet?"

Aunt Maude: "Hold on, let me grab the harpoon and check."

[clattering and clunking, following by some groans and eventually, a sudden "MOO!" from the pool]

Aunt Maude: "Not yet! Did you remember to season the water?"

Exactly what I was thinking, throw some food in food saver sealed bags and put on the solar cover. Sous vide on it's way!
