So the past couple years I've had a heck of a time with our 27' above ground pool's winter cover. Before and after the pool freezes wind gets underneath the winter cover, pushes all the water to one side of the pool, and puffs it up like giant balloon. I've already started seeing damage to the cover in areas that are being buffeted the most, so I'd like to solve it this year.
In the past I've tried:
-Jugs of water inside the edge of the pool. Turns out the wind was strong enough to toss them out of the pool.
-Plastic wrap around the outside of the pool. Didn't stop the wind and blew off in the middle of the winter.
-Air cushion in middle of pool. I was hoping it wold prevent the water from moving around... but it didn't.
My only other idea is to line the inside edge of the pool with water bags, but that's going to cost >$50 and I don't even know if it's going to work.
Does anyone anyone have any suggestion or advice?
