Thread: I'm looking for a good cover.

    I'm looking for a good cover.

    My green tarp finally bit the dust. I'm not sure if I want to go back with the water bags and tarp/cover. I was looking at those covers that you need to drill holes in the concrete and put in hooks? Do they hold snow? Would anybody know best place to buy either cover? Thank you. Filix.

    You bet they hold snow! We live on top of a hill in the country and get blasted with snow and ice. I cannot even begin to imagine the weight that has been on our cover already over the winter when the entire pool area is buried under several feet of snow and ice. You're right - you need to have them measure, custom fit, and then drill and put in the anchors that attach to the cover springs. Your best bet is Meyco or Merlin. I just replaced my 21-year old Meyco with a Merlin. They are great covers. I would NEVER go back to those old, bulky solid covers with the water tubes. For one thing, I got really tired of that disgusting swamp that you wind up with on the top of the cover. Check out both websites -
