    Re: closing pool with power cover

    We have an automatic pool cover also. We just bought the house last year and the manual says you can use it in the winter provided the cover rests on the water and not above the water.

    However we didn't know the age of the cover and the prior owners husband purchased a winter cover and water bags. She didn't know why and they were never used. Also, the current cover is a Coveratar and the first 3 inches of the webbing on both sides is torn (which i read somewhere other people had the same problem). So we used the winter cover instead of the auto cover so we wouldn't risk any more tearing. We don't have any problems with rain water but wasn't sure about large amounts of snow causing damage.
