So my solid safety cover is coming apart after last season's snows, the pool was built in 2006 so I assume it is 8 years old. Bought the house in 2011. I sent it out for repair through Leslie's but they would not do it stating there is too much stitching rot. They use Raynor and they quoted me $4,500 for the same replacement, I think they had some mesh covers also that ran from $4,000 to $5,000. Currently what I have is Yard Guard. Most other places I will need to pay shipping for the cover to get a quote. This price seems way too high for me and I was wondering if anyone here had experience replacing their cover and can suggest a more affordable solution? I called Backyardcity which I think someone suggested on this forum but they do not do replacements any more (only new covers) and sent me to MightyCovers who also suggested Raynor as the other two companies they use charge for shipping and estimates. He said they all charge more or less the same for the cover itself but not sure how true that is.
