We are in year 2 of owning our 27ft round above-ground pool. Last year, we simply took the A-frame ladder in and out when we went in, and our two small children (6 and 3) were not able to access it any other way. This year, we are building a partial deck around half of the pool, and I'd like to get a safety cover to add in another level of protection to keep the kiddos out. We aren't near a lot of trees, so a solid cover isn't necessary (I've seen some that are mesh). We closed this year without any cover at all due to our heavy snowfalls and we opened a gorgeous crystal blue
Ok, so I'd like to see pics of your set up if you have a safety cover on your above ground pool. Preferably I'd like to I guess mount it to the deck on the one side and mount it to the uprights or rail on the side without a deck? Last year we used a solar cover (that we just physically put on and took off, no roller, what a pain). If you use a mesh safety cover, do you still throw your solar cover on underneath to retain heat? Is there any system that allows for a safety cover to be on a roller, or do you just walk around and unclip it every time you use it?
