Since we decided to go ahead and do this pool now thinking it will be all ready for next spring , we want to put a safety cover on and i thought that would be easy ! apparently some let water go into the pool and some dont .i want to make sure my dogs dont fall in . I also thought we could just buy an 18x36 which is the size of our rectangle pool but it appears that it depends on the steps etc. . but the pool company wants 1700 and i think we can purchase it for less than half that . I am wondering if we do that if all of us including all of our sons,my husband and son in law will be able to get it on .
