    IG pool cover recommendation

    I have to order an IG pool cover and wanted to make sure I was ordering from a vendor with a good product/track record. I am leaning towards a mesh cover b/c a hard cover may be too difficult to manage. Thanks

    Are you asking for online vendor suggestions?

    If so, I just ordered and received in timely fashion a solar cover from www.intheswim.com

    http://www.poolgeek.com/ offers a discount for TFP members, unfortunately he does not carry covers. Just thought I'd let you know for future purchases.

    Try these guys, they're who we use for most liners and covers http://www.vynall.com/index.cfm. Your pool should be easy to make a cover for, and I'd assume that anyone could do it but these guys have a good product and good 'turnover' time. If you need any tips or help with the installation, just ask

    Yes - I am looking for online vendors. Thanks for the info

    I expect to take my time and install the cover myself (I'm sure my wife will be nervous). Just wanted to make sure I get a quality product from a place that has good customer service. There are many cover manufacturers (artic armor, meyco, etc...) making my decision a little harder. Not sure if my pool will be OK with a 5x5 panel. A salesman told me that the manufacturer will determine if 5x5 is sufficient, or I need 3x3.

    Re: IG pool cover recommendation

    What cover did you go with. I see that poolgeek.com now has covers. Does anyone know the discount to TFP members?
