    AGP cover blowing off

    A friend of mine has a new Intex above ground pool that came with a cover. Wind is getting under the cover and blowing it off. Has anybody else had this problem and if so how can it be prevented. We tried putting a long 2X4 across the top of pool to hold the cover down but that didn't work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    20' x 40' IG with vinyl liner volume approx. 35,000 gal.1.5 H.P. main pump, Polaris 280 cleaner W/ 3/4 H.P. booster pump
    Hayward sand filter, 3.14 sq ft, 62 gpm. Stenner 45 MPH10 chlorine feed pump. 1 micron final filter bags (home made and very effective)

    They can get clamps at Home Depot or lowes to clamp the cover on. That is what we did.

    They undersize those covers a lot. You could order a bigger one, they are inexpensive.

    Those clamps are a good idea. Wish I had thought of that.

    My husband thought about it last year.
