    Re: winter cover

    I did a bunch of research. You want a solid safety cover, preferrebly with mesh drains. And electric cover is nice, but about $15,000 and can't handle a snow load. You'd need a safety cover anyway. I went with loop-loc, one of the name brands. it was $3300 installed. Super happy with it. Mother in law fell on it and no problems, kids wandered on it and no problems. Looks great after a year in the weather too.

    I put a automatic wayne sump pump on the step of the pool to keep the water level down about a foot. Worked great.

    Here's the cover:

    How the water looked when I opened it this spring. Cleaned up quick!
