    AGP Pool Cover Problem - Advice Needed Please.

    Hi all,

    I've a slight problem. My round Intex 15' AGP pool cover has split all over, it's pathetically made as I'm sure lots of other people on this forum would agree with. As we have 3 cats my wife is worried that we'd wake up one morning to a drowned cat so I need to find a replacement cover. Ideally, I want:

    1. A cover that one person can put on without hassle. Two at most.
    2. Fits snugly round the frame
    3. Made of something that won't split or break the first time you use it (this is what happened with the Intex)
    4. Not going to cost more than the pool!

    Thanks
    D.

    If all you're worried about are the cats I either get a 12 mil solar cover (theyr'e bouyant enough to hold up a cat) or a 15' winter cover. The winter cover will be a pain to take off and put on but it'll keep a cat out of the water.

    I've a solar cover which will go on once the pool is full. The winter cover (debris cover) is the one that's torn and ****. Can I just stick to the solar cover?

    I've been trying to find someplace that sell this but I haven't had any luck. I have now idea how easy it is to use or the quality, but I like the idea of it, since we have 3 young kids.http://www.h2orec.com/secur-net.php?id=5 If anyone knows where I can get one, I would appreciate it!

    I saw they sell them on Amazon, but I can't find them anywhere for a 15 ft metal intex pool. On Amazon they only sell them for the 18ft metal pools.

    We have 2 cats that actually have fallen into the pool (luckily, I found them in time both times!!!!!) - so we got a mesh leaf net to cover our pool. They'd get wet if they fall in, but they would be able to get back out too.

    Just another idea!
