    Has anyone used an easy dome pool cover?

    This cover looks really interesting, does anyone have any experience with it? http://easydomepoolcovers.com/
    I am wondering if it is really worth the cost.

    Wonder if the water tubes would split if they froze solid. I guess you could put in some antifreeze.

    No antifreeze, the bags are not filled to bursting. In ground covers have used water bags for years.

    Yeah, 599 for the 27/28 but it looks interesting it will work well with the fence that I have.

    Their website says "This cover typically costs only $50 more than an average cover."

    Where do they get this data?????

    Compared to the life of a standard cover you probably will buy at least two regular covers plus air and water bags. So their statement is in the same ball park. I don't want to sound like I am praising the product, I am trying to find someone that has one and their opinion of it.

    OK - so I can get behind the idea this is a reasonable value - if the claims are true - but I can't stand the wording they selected. If they had said, "Cost effective - lasts 2-3 times as long" vs. a statement that implies that it is only $50 extra I would be less miffed.
