Have a free form pool build starting in a few weeks and we are going through all the final decision making processes now. The builder is giving us the option of either the Mesh Loop Loc cover or the Ultra Loc II which is basically solid with a few mesh panels interspersed.
Being in NY we certainly get precipitation over the off-season whether in the form of rain, snow, or some combination in between. Therefore, a fully solid cover is out of the question.
The mesh is lighter, but also allows more sunlight through.
