    Intex 26' - cover that came with pool sufficient?

    Is there any reason why I can NOT use the cover that came with the pool? It has about 10 quarter-size holes, which I'm guessing is to help the water drain off the cover.

    I am certainly willing to buy a "real" pool cover if needed!

    I'm thinking ...
    drain water below 2 holes
    put a couple floats in pool
    cover floats & pool with Intex cover
    put tarp over Intex cover, until leaves finish falling, so I can pull leaves off of cover......
