    Solar cover

    Hi, got our above ground pool last year and we had a used solar cover from a friend. It bit the dust so I am needing another one. My pool is 26' and from what I have seen there isn't a 26' cover made. Would it be best to get the 28' and trim or would the 24' that is quite a bit cheaper do the same? Thanks!

    Well, I have a free-form pool so whenever I get a cover I have to trim it. Just know that trimming the cover typically voids the warranty, not that those are worth the paper they're printed on.

    If fund$ allow it, I would go bigger and trim. Exposed edges are more likely to pick up the wind and get blown around.

    Thank you so much. That's what we thought but just wanted another opinion.
