The below curves represent a typical 16×32 inground pool with a little shade (25%) heated or not with an aged solar cover and a eight 4’x12′ solar collector system (75% of pool surface). It was assumed the cover would always be on the pool 20 hours a day and for 4 hours the cover would come off (for the 2 plots with covers) and moderate pool activity would occur. The graph was created by Hot Sun Industries using Enerpool solar simulation software.
