    Looking for Recommendation on pool winter covers

    Can anyone recommend a cover for a 21 round above ground pool? brand/style/material..place to order. Looking for good quality, but not top of the line. This is the first winter with our pool and first time covering it. I have done some searching...but any pointers on ordering will be a great help.

    Re: Looking for Recommendation on pool winter covers

    I guess no one has any info on covers.. I have another question, I was given a pool cover by a neighbor when I took down their pool. Cover looks like new, but has a few tiny pin holes in the cover. Nothing bigger than pin holes. At what point do covers need to be replaced? Do pin holes make it not useable? I would like to use it this winter (our first winter with the pool) and replace it next year. Are a few pin holes cause to replace it...or normal for a cover.

    Thanks,

    I am also looking for info on pool covers. I have a 24 ft round. I am not sure how good a quality I should get.

    Duct Tape is your friend..Just tape them holes over&use the free cover.I have found over the year's that the cheap one's are the best..Just cover it up for the winter&if you have to throw away you don't have much in it..Plus,the pain of cleaning it off.I much rather throw away than mess with the clean up.

    Thanks, other than some pin holes it looks good. Going to give it a shot.

    http://www.arcticbluecovers.com/product_items/ci/70. Looks like a nice cover. Might try it next season when we get the pool up.
