I know the winter cover does not go around the skimmer to prevent damage but does the plastic skimmer cover go back on top? The reason I ask is because the wind is blowing in through the skimmer opening and under the cover. This is our first year of winterizing so we have the brand new winter cover on with cable ratcheted down then going to use the shrink wrap around 2x to keep it secure. Just the air underneath is fighting us (very windy today so holding off on doing the shrink wrap until it dies down).
Love this forum and cannot wait to join the BBB Club next spring!
