    Pool cover--clamps, hooks

    How do we keep the pool cover ON the pool at night? Dh and I tighten as much as possible..but every morning the pool cover is OFF and floating in the pool. Isn't that so not the purpose? lol Are there any clamps we can use for it to clamp it to the metal frame to hold it? If so..what kind do I look for? I looked at Lowes and Harbor Freight today..but left with nothing as I didn't know what the heck to buy. Also...does anyone make some type of hooks that can be hung off the frame to hold the cover up off the ground? All I found were small type hooks.

    We ended up using a couple of packs of self adhesive velcro.
    We stuck the fuzzy side to the pool (in case the kids rubbed against it during a swim) by each leg and then stuck the 'hook' side on the pool cover.
    It worked a treat.

    If you have a solar cover with the bubbles then that would lie flat on the water anyway

    I use these when I put my winter mesh cover on. They come in different sizes and they work great.

    Um, do you mean the solar blanket (bubble wrap stuff)?

    It's supposed to float on the surface.

    No..we live in way south texas..so no solar cover is needed at all. Thank goodness. LOL The water is always nice and warm for us. Just the blue cover that comes with the pools when you buy them.
