so I am shopping for a safety cover for my pool. it is a 20x43 double roman with stairs at the long end making it a total of 47' long. also, there is a swimout, so ultimately, it is 24' wide at its widest.
I understand that these covers are cut to properly overlap the pool, and include "wear" bars around the edges so the covers do not prematurely wear.
I also understand that using a rectangular cover on a free form pool voids the warranty.
So hear is the dilemma. I found a rectangular cover that is for a 24 x 47' pool for a LOT less than ordering a custom cut one.
If i put something down on the concrete pad where the cover will come in contact, will the cover last its normal useful life? I happen to have a whole roll of the 1/8" steel pool wall foam that i could double sided tape down to the concrete in certain locations around the pool just before the cover goes down.
If i am diligent, do you see a problem with this? Please remember, I am talking about getting the over sized cover for about 1/2 price.
Thanks for your quick replys...i am hoping (unless i am convinced otherwise), to order it today!
