I have a 15x30 oval above ground pool. Some say to leave the cover off during
the day for the heating of the sun and cover at night. Others say the opposite.

You absolutely want to cover the pool at night. Evaporation causes about
1/2 of pool cooling and you want to minimize evaporation during periods
where the pool isn't getting an influx of solar heat. During the daytime,
the answer may vary depending on conditions.

What's your locale? How warm do you want it? Is the bottom of your pool very
dark for heat absorbtion? If not, then I'm with the others. Except the
opposite part. Keep it on all the time you aren't using it, and keep a close
eye on the water's condition. Tom
