New owner of an 18x36 vinyl liner 25,000 gallon pool in Kansas - hot summers, relatively cold winters. Previous owner says old winter cover was ordered too small, and IIRC it is also torn. It was the variety that used water bags to hold it, and was falling into the pool at the end of winter this year.
I don't know anything about covers, but I do know I'm going to need a cover for winter. Could really use one for summer too, to prevent chemical loss and evaporation, and keep leaves out.
I have trees that drop leaves as well as a dog and a cat. Pool concrete has area at one end covered with 2x12" wood I'm told is for installing an automatic cover, and there's an electrical box there as well.
What types of covers are out there, and what am I looking at for price ranges?
