    winter cover shopping...first winter closing...

    Hi all,

    What do most use solid or mesh cover?

    Where do you buy to get it for best price?

    Thoughts on this one?

    I use a solid cover with a one foot strip of mesh down the center. Very pleased with it. Here is a link to the thread I posted with my experience with it.

    I just checked and I bought it from Pools.com, but they don't carry it any longer. If you google Ultimate winter pool cover, you will find several places that carry it. Ebay seems to have the best price.

    I use a solid cover. I have been through several. None last more than 2 seasons. I am going to follow the adice this year of buying the cheapest one possible, because even the expensive ones dont last.
