This past summer we replaced it with one of these solar covers and I'm so happy we did! Even though it floats right on top of the water, it did a much better job of keeping debris out than the other style cover. Also, we definitely noticed the difference in water temp...we were able to use the pool a lot more this last summer because the water got a lot warmer.
Yes, it's basically just a huge sheet of bubble wrap but so what! It fit our pool perfect and was really easy to take on and off, even with the pool ladder we left in the water...you could kind of 'form' it around the ladder.
UPDATE: After 3 months of use this cover disintegrated. It began to fall apart and leave tons of blue pieces in the pool, which were not fun to clean out. I don't know if the material just couldn't hold up to heat and pool chemicals, but it would have been nice to have this last longer.
Summer 2016 update: had this cover two years. It's toast! It finally just degraded from being out in the sun. My regular pool cover is STILL in the box. This bubble wrap one is ridiculously easy to use, even on the upgraded 10' hard sided pool. Even the kids could take it on and off with no problems. The holes in the cover allow for drainage so it doesn't weigh twenty pounds when you're trying to remove it. And it DOES make a difference in the temp. After using this all year, with a consistent very warm temp, I (accidentally) left the cover off for about a week, and there was almost a ten degree drop in temperature! Absolutely worth the twenty bucks, which lasted two years. I'll be purchasing another one in the spring.
The heating part is well performed; we live in CA, so sun is not a problem; it raise the temperature of the water by 4-8 degrees, so if you continue to mix the water with the pump, it is able to bring the whole pool to a decent temperature (of course depends from how much sun you get on the pool, and what kind of temperature you have there).
The problems are 2: it is very fragile...it broke after just few days, since the outer part is made of solid plastic, with a rope that you can tighten so it won't fly away, but the inner part is basically blue colored bubble wrap plastic; so as soon as you pull it too much, the glue between the bubble wrap and the more solid plastic rim give up on you, and you rip the top.
Nothing that a good amount of duct tape can fix, but be prepared to be very careful, or to use a lot of duct tape.
Also keep in mind that it barely fits the 10 feet pool, there is little room to wiggle.
It does what it says thou...you may save money just buying on your own a 10 feet diameter bubble wrap cover at your local store maybe.
