    Question Pool covering

    I have a 24' above ground pool with a deck built around it and the deck makes it impossible to put the round cover on it with the synch cable.
    What I have been doing for the past 5 years is laying a tarp over the pool and placing bricks around the deck to hold it down. The bricks have worked better than bungee cables as the eyelets do not hold.
    I am tired of this situation and the tarps are only good for one season as the wind whips it and the shock level water deteriorates the tarp.

    Any ideas on how I can get something better going?

    This the cover I use. It's on it's 3rd season with shock level water. Eyelets are reinforced. It's in great shape. http://www.poolandspa.com/catalog/pr...Pool-Cover.cfm
    You could use these pop up anchors for a wood deck and attach the cover with the tarp straps that are supplied with the cover. 😎

    Re: Pool covering

    My covers always collect leaves and I then in spring its the yellow pollen. I would rather it not have a mesh and let water through as it my let the bird **** water and muddy leave residue get into my clean water.

    Pool covering

    I've got the same things and it doesn't do anything to my water. Water is crystal clear when I open. Maybe some silt on the floor but nothing the vac can't take care of. I also put a leaf net on top of the winter cover. 😎

    Re: Pool covering

    I was wondering, could I use those double chamber water tubes to hold down the cover? Are they any good? I worry about the eyelets taking a beating, as some of my other tarps have done in the past.

    Pool covering

    Sure you could.
    If your talking about the eyelet's on the cover I suggested to you they are reinforced. 😎
