PB closed our new pool a couple weeks ago and I noticed today after some rain that the cover has a little sag to it. Does it need to be tightened a bit more? This is a brand new “micro mesh” cover and we are in southwest lower MI so we do get quite a bit of snow. Thanks!!
Your cover is too loose. First year for me and after the cover was installed, I think it stretched out a bit or loosened up. As JamesW said, I checked each spring and now it looks much better. Per my manufacture’s instructions, each spring is supposed to be engaged by 50%. I’m not sure I got that precise but I made sure each spring had some tension on it.
Not sure if there’s a right way to tighten, but I have a rectangle so I started on the short ends and then went to the middle and worked out on the long ends. My main goal was to make sure that there was balance. I didn‘t want a spring on one side being very tight and not have any tension on the spring on the opposing side of the same strap, if you know what I mean.
