We have a 20 by 40 rectangular pool (26,000 Gallons) and are trying to figure out what to do about our cover. We have a mesh cover that was ripping along the seams when we opened the pool. We recently tried to sew parts of it together when we noticed that many of the seams are coming apart. It's an old cover and we can't afford a new $3000 cover at this point. Would it be a good option to simply close the pool but not cover it (we live in PA)? Our pool is away from trees and fenced in. Or are there any others cheaper solutions for us to consider? Thanks in advance for your advice.
