Boy very realistic but What do you think about super strong fans (may need to be jet engine strong)  that blows the rain away just above your sukkah. This way you don't even need a shlock and even if it's raining you can sit in your kosher sukkah.
Any thoughts? Halachic or otherwise?

Make sure that your schach is omed bruach mitzuya. And that your yarmulka/shaitel is clipped on well. And that you have no neighbors.

I'll leave Halachic to those more qualified but from an engineering perspective you'll have an easier time with a cover.

At home we have a tarp with pieces of wood every couple of inches on each piece of wood a big curtain type metal ring is attached on both ends each side then gets put through a long pole that connects to the wall placed higher then the other so when it gets spread out and rain lands on it the rain streams down in mini troughs between each piece of wood. Open and close via pulley system. I will try getting some pictures to make the description more understandable

Was it completely not understandable or do you just want the pictures?

Forgot to mention, the way we connect the wood to the tarp is by sandwiching it between two pieces of wood and nailing them together, puts way less stress on the tarp.

Yes, barely takes space and rarely needs any maintenance...also very easy to open and close my 7 year old sister does it.
