I have a 27 foot above ground round pool. Every year I battle with this thing to keep the leaves out/off of it because the cover invariably sinks back into the water, I get leaves in the water and the water is green and it takes me gallons upon gallon of chlorine to SLAM it. Pillows ain't cutting it.
My idea is to get a 24 foot cover which would measure 28 feet in diameter (I've already found one), put that on and hang water or sand filled gallon bottles all around it to keep the cover completely taught. That way I can blow the leaves off and no more green water (at least not to the extent it's like now when I first take the cover off in the Spring).
Any ideas? I think it's a fabulous idea myself but hey I'm biased. What I do know is that I cannot find a cover for an exact 27 foot pool, it's either for smaller ones or bigger ones and the bigger ones are WAY too big. I need to take an exact measurement of the pool to the outside of the rim/lip/edge.
