Yes.. As long as no part of the cover can get sucked into your skimmer box and block it. Ensure the cover does not protrude into the skimmer box area and it will be fine.

Can you run your pool filter with a solar cover on it?

As I read your question - - - you want to put a solar cover over the filter. If you actually mean can you put the solar cover on the pool surface and run the filter and pump too. BTW, the filter does not move the water, the PUMP moves the water. The pump is the only piece of equipment that you would be used to run th ewater thru the filter. The pump is like the heart of the equipment pad. Then yes you can do both. The solar cover when installed as it should be - on the water - has no signifigence with regard to the filter ( the large tank). The purpose of running the pump either with the cover on or off would be to move or circulate the water. With a solar cover on the surface of the water - only the top two feet of the water is warmed. The rest of the pool remains cooler. Circulating the water would move that warm water and mix it with the cooler water. Think about it.

How do you lower the chlorine level in your swimming pool?

I take the pool cover off, sun depletes chlorine, also run your filter for about 2 hours a day. Well, certainly running your pump/filter 2 hours per day would bring on the "greenies" in a hurry. It is obsurd to run the filter for only 2 hrs per day unless you had a very small wading pool. 6 to 10 hrs would be the minimum run time. I'd hate to see how clear or sanitary the above persons pool was even after the 2 hr filter run time. Not gonna happen. You will never have a clear as crystal pool water even if you never used the pool. Total bunk on the filter run time.
