    Solar cover for intex 9x18 pool

    I'm putting up one of the intex 9x18 pools, and shopping for a solar cover...and it seems that the only company that anyone sells in a 9x18, or 9xAnything more than 18 (9x20 would be fine because i am installing a reel anyway) is intex. I'm wary to get the official intex one sight unseen after buying a cheap (intex? Don't remember) one last year for my old round intex that was no heavier than the bubble wrap you buy at office max and fell apart in no time in the hot Vegas sun.

    Those of you with the intex 9x18 pool, any recommendations for a solar cover? If you use the intex one, is it decent or the pos I fear it is? I know I could buy a larger one and cut it down if I have to, but I want to try avoiding that if I can

    If you don't want to trust the Intex one, your best bet is to buy a larger one and cut it to fit. You could buy one twice the size you need and cut it in half and store the un-used half indoors. That way you'd have 2 for the price of 1 and just replace the first half when it fails.

    That's a good point that I didn't think of... I think i'm going to go that way. Thanks!
