    Installing Winter "Shrink-Wrap" on AGP

    I am not sure what you mean about rolling the excess, but mine looks like this. It's an Intex, so I removed all the plumbing before wrapping. I wrapped it around about 5 times.

    Intex Ultra XTR owners: Winterizing Cover

    I used pool wrap (like heavy duty saran wrap) and it seems like it will work great. The wind isn't able to get up under it.

    Intex 12x24 Ultra Frame Winterizing - sides bowing concern

    After reading what other people did, I did not drain mine at all. I left all the water in it. Also, it looks like your cover it too tight. I let mine sit on the water (around the pillow) with plenty of slack. Mine is round but I was worried about the same thing, so that's why I didn't...

    Intex Closing (pictures)

    Just wrapped up my pool yesterday and I love, love the pool wrap. It was so easy to put on and I don't think that stuff is going to move at all in the wind.

    Last Swim

    Well, no more swimming here in IL. I'm glad I closed the pool yesterday because it's snowing this morning! I guess snow is the official end :cry:

    Drain Water to Winterize

    Supposed to be 78 here on Thursday. Could swim if I was a polar bear.

    Winterizing 18’ Intex Metal Frame Pool Set (Newbie)

    Just wondering why you are draining so much water? I think a collapse is more likely with so little water? I am not an expert by any means, but I am leaving my Intex full for the winter and using a solid winter cover.

    Winter Mesh Cover. Is this normal?

    It's probably not normal if the grommets are tearing. I use a solid cover, but I wouldn't want all that weight pulling toward the middle. I can't tell if the cover is sitting in the water or outside water is pooling on the cover.

    Anyone had the 'rona?

    It's definitely a challenge. My son is a teen and he is not engaged, so I don't know how the young kids are doing the zoom. The teachers are getting mad cause a lot of kids don't show up on the zoom and less than half the kids are doing the homework. We are supposed to call the school when...

    Anyone had the 'rona?

    Our entire district has been on "Zoom school" since March. No one has set foot in a classroom yet. I don't think school is as effective in Zoom, but I don't have to worry about my son being exposed. I don't think teens think or worry about germs that much, so not as hygienic as an adult...

    Help! Can't decide - Pillow? or No Pillow?

    I think it's so that water and snow gathers around the pillow and not in the middle of the cover. I think the pillow will make it easier to pump water off the cover if you are short like me 😄
