    Width of a replacement pool cover ?

    I am going to replace my coverstar pool cover this season.

    I have a kidney pool inside a rectangular step down so the rectangular cover glides over my pool deck first and then the pool.

    Because the deck is only 2 1/4 inches lower than my track there is wrinkling of the fabric and this has led to cracks along the wrinkles where water seeps through.

    The cover that I have had is 6 inches wider than the guide rails which is what the company recommends.

    What would happen if I ordered a cover only 4 inches wider? I think this would eliminate most of the wrinkles that are failure points on the upper deck. I could keep the water level in the pool higher. but not in the winter. Too much stress ?

    Can anyone comment on a covertsar cover vs a PCS cover as well.

    Bad Idea??

    To measure the cover they want the track to track measurement. You have to have the extra, without the extra any rainfall that the cover pump cant remove could cause track failure.
