i realize we are a ways from this, but i was at my father in laws the other day and he was just starting to open his 26 x 52 intex. his winter cover was under water with a ton of debris on it he was removing. it made me wonder:
what about putting some type of prop rod or something in center of pool so that cover is conical in shape causing rain, snow, debris, etc to roll off to the sides instead of sagging down in the center of the cover?
does any company make such a thing? anyone on here make there own? i figured if you made one with a round smooth bottom that wouldnt damage liner, that was weighted so it wouldnt move from center, then drape cover over it, that would be much better than a flat cover pulled drum tight.
