I am a newbie, we just purchased a home with an inground 20x42 gunite pool this spring. The previous owners used a regular cover with the water bags, but we ripped it when we opened the pool (I have a feeling it was pretty old). Now I am looking to replace it with a safety cover just because they look so much nicer. The pool area is visible from every window on the back of the house, including the kitchen.
This is a HUGE investment & I can't seem to find any reviews online for the solid covers. My question is...do any of you have experiece with them? Which brand or type is best? I've also debated between a mesh cover & a solid one...we don't have many trees and the pool is completely surrounded with a chain link fence, so I'm not sure it will get a lot of debris...then again & don't want a swamp in the springtime, so maybe I should go with a solid one.
I should mention we live in Michigan, so Looooonnnnggggg winters here with the potential for an abundance of snow.
Thanks for your help!
