    Tight Winter cover ?...

    Just closed my 15ft round pool.. Bought winter cover from American Sales . Lowered the water about 6in below skimmer.. Just seems like with snow and water its going to be pulling tight on the cover, I put some water on it to keep it down... Heres the pics::

    That cover looks too small for your pool. Is there any slack below the blue wrap? Is it a solid cover or is it a mesh cover?

    You could put a couple of inner tubes under the cover to support the weight of snow and water, but you'll have to take the blue wrap off and redo it.

    The cover wraps over about a foot of slack around the outside....

    That slack should be up in the pool.

    With your larger top rails that cover is too small. I would go for a cover that is 6' larger diameter than your pool.
