I am replacing my solar cover and am planning to fit it differently this time, but wondered if any of you have tried this and if there were any problems. I was reading how to cut a solar cover on an Australian website and their instructions say to have a "lip" go up around the sides rather than cutting it to fit just to the edge. I like this idea because doing that will keep the leaves from falling into the pool over the edges of the cover. I'd appreciate hearing any thoughts anyone has on this.
Just about every Australian site that gives instructions says to leave an upturn on the sides. Here is an example:
