This is what I have: 15'X30' oval above ground pool, living in northeastern Pennsylvania. This is my fourth year with it but never seem to close it to my liking. If i don't get the water off the cover, it just freezes and the leaves turn it into a swap.
Here is my solution in theory, lower the water level below the skimmer box and inlet. Buy plugs for those from a pool supplier, raise the water level and put in a a 15' long pillow, (maybe 2 to go the entire length?). Hopefully i could make the cover tight enough so the water and leaves just roll off the sides.
Any suggestions and feedback would be appreciated.
