    Pool Cover and A-Frame ladder

    How does one cover the above ground pool with an A-Frame ladder in it? In southern California we get some heavy duty winds and I would like to keep the debris out. Thanks.

    You take the ladder out of the pool.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Darn - that's hard when the ladder is bolted to the frame and the legs are filled with water. I wish there was another way to cover the pool without removing the ladder.

    I thought you were talking about a winter cover for end of the year. I'm sorry.

    I have cut around my ladder too.

    Yes, I was referring to the pool's cover, not a solar cover. I wanted to be able to put it on and off, like a car cover, when the weather turns inclement. In southern California, we can have sunny one day, rainy on the next, and high winds on the third. I guess the solar cover will have to suffice. - Thanks!

    You'll have to remove the ladder to use the pool cover.
