Our pool is surrounded by trees and gets a lot of crud falling on it. We often have days between uses. Last summer I used just the solar cover as a cover but it got quite dirty and every time I removed it, all the stuff landed in the pool. I started to apply the vinyl Intex pool cover (the one with drawstring) but am wondering if anyone has an ideas on securing it to the metal frame. Ideally a spring clip over the top 2 inch bar and cover would hold it in place nicely.
What do other do in a similar environment - solar cover alone, solar and vinyl? How do you secure the vinyl?
