We live just outside of Austin, TX and this is our first year with our Intex 16x32' AGP. I'm looking for a cover that will;
- keep leaves out
- is easy to use
- may help keep it warm as we move into cooler months
- will be good when we winterize the pool in a few months

Between the cover that came with the pool, solar covers, and other options, I'm not sure what the best fit is. I appreciate your help.

Mike,

I do not use a cover to close my pool but I do have a solar cover.. almost any solar cover will work and you can probably get them cheap right now.. I have taken mine off as 50 degree temps at night it was only keeping the water at 70 degrees...

this is what my pool looks like after 3 months being closed :)

I love the “The PoolCleaner” We have been using this one for 6 years now.. It did get stuck and broke one of the gears this spring so I rebuilt it for 23 bucks :)
