    Anybody know about Easy Set covers? Floating pucks?

    My tiny AGP is finally running smoothly. I am now looking to accessorize!

    Seriously though, I was thinking about a pool cover. Intex sells one for my pool that is only 9 bucks. I want the cover to keep leaves and debris out of the pool though most of that comes from the feet of my three year old. Speaking of which, I also thought the cover might provide another layer of safety for small kids around the pool. Though for 9 bucks it seems like it might be too insubstantial to keep a kid from falling through even though they may only weigh 40 pounds. Any thoughts on this?

    It certainly could not be viewed as a safety cover.

    I don't think that cover your talking about is going to provide any amount of safety. I've never seen a safety cover for that type of pool.

    As for the junk getting in the pool, you could run the hose out to it to spray the little ones feet off or if that's not possible put a basin of water there to rinse feet off.

    As to your floating pucks comment. We don't recommend them for normal daily maintenance. With a small pool like your, You could simply add liquid bleach to keep it clean (and filter it). if you go to you can see how much to add. We recommend a high quality test kit but with tiny pools (not the ones sold in most stores), some add a set amount of bleach each day and then do a dump and fill of it gets too green.

    If you water is expensive or otherwise difficult, the cost of the kit is lower than cost of a dump and fill. We recommend the TF50 or TF100 for most owners.

    A non-safety cover can actually increase danger of drowning. Entrapment can occur with these. Be careful.

    Get one of those covers that wrap around the ring and can be cinched tight with the pull cord. They work really good. I use a heavier rope to wrap around the cover, the pull cord is pretty light.
