I've finally got my pool rehab and ready to go but now it is time close the pool down in a few weeks. I have been looking at safety covers and I wanted to go with a solid cover with no drains. I wanted to get a loop loc cover but they don't sell directly to consumers and a quote I got from a pool guy seems kinda high. I was going to get a quote from leslies pools but I heard horror stories about them and the guy said the best cover they have is made by GLI. Should I consider installing the pool cover myself or does the cost provided so far seem reasonable for my size pool? No special features except a diving board.
The quotes I got from my pool guy is including installation. My pool is a kidney shaped pool roughly 512sq ft.
