What difficulties have people had with bubble-type solar covers and reels for in-ground pools?
HELLO. THEY DON'T LAST VERY LONG. I'M SHOPPING NOW FOR A NEW ONE. MINE LASTED ABOUT 2 YEARS. THE BUBBLES BURST AND END UP IN THE WATER AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS. I have had several bubble pool covers and have been generally happy with them. They raise the water temperature significantly; however, they only last 2 to 3 years. The ones with 12 mil thick plastic usually have a 5 yr limited warranty but my experience is they don't last any longer than the 8 mil thick covers (the bubbles break and you need to skim them off the surface), and it isn't worth trying to collect on the warranty. I prefer the 8 mil covers because they are much lighter, making them easy to wind onto and off the reel and to lift; but it seems most covers they sell now are 12 mil. The bubble solar covers have been a real headache. We have had 3 of them in 6 years and after the first year they start to degrade (even with a 3 or 5 year guarantee) The problem also exists when you replace them under warantee, it still costs the labor. I got a 15-mil from waterwarehouse.com that has an EIGHT-year warranty. First two years is free replacement, after that it's graduated. I've had my 12 mil cover for 3 years now. It definitely can raise the temperature of the water and I have had no problems with mine so far. No bubbles have popped and no areas have torn. However, I have carefully cleaned, dried, and stored it out of the sunlight when it is not in use.
In addition the the last statement - the cover should have a protective cover over it once it is reeled on the the roller. Yes, covers are noted for not lasting beyond or to the warranty date. Other problems involved with bubble covers are abrasion while reeling the cover over the coping and too attaching the cover to the reel in a way as to facilitate a good even wind up and unrolling process. Another would be proper anchoring of the reel to the deck. This makes it extremely easier to roll and unroll especially for large covers. Leaving the rolled up cover in the sunlight even if covered will shorten the life of a cover.
The worst problem people have with bubble wrap covers is that if left on too long they cause green algae to take over the pool and embed in vinyl liners.
Some people are just jerks. I fail to see what "learning difficulties" has to do with anything. Is it okay to insult people who don't have learning difficulties? Do we need to verify this first? "Excuse me, do you have a learning difficulty? You do? Oh, sorry, carry on then, I was going to call you a twit, but now I can't."
Difficulties in intercultural communications occur because people in different cultures have different?
Why and how can difficulties occur when you communicate with people who are different from yourself (50 and ndash100 words)?
Yes, people with learning difficulties can drive - obviously it depends on the difficulties. For example I have ADHD - this causes problems with focus, reading, and executive dysfunction - I can learn to drive easily, and my issues with focus don't impact on my driving. A person with more severe learning difficulties however may struggle to learn to drive due to problems learning new information in general. Everyone is different and there are many…
"Covers per day" means the amount of people served in a restaurant, cafe or catering business. For instance, a business might serve 60 people food and drink over lunch. This would be 60 "covers" during lunchtime service. They may then serve 100 people for dinner. So the total covers per day equals 160 covers.
An inground pool is typically lined with either gunite (concrete), fiberglass, or vinyl. Gunite and fiberglass are roughly the same cost, whereas vinyl is considerably cheaper. With the lower price comes less durability, as vinyl lining has to be replaced every 8-10 years or so, whereas the other two can last for decades. Vinyl is also much easier to puncture or otherwise damage. That said, many people still prefer vinyl inground pools due to the…
