Here are a few tips to find the right pool cover for your home’s swimming pool:

  • Always Select a Pool Cover Based on Size: Do not purchase a pool cover the exact size of your pool. Covers should have up to five inches of extra overlap depending on the shape of your pool. Be sure that you have enough slack to lay your cover over your pool.
  • Do Not Stretch Your Pool Cover: A cover should be laid over water, not stretched over the pool. Stretched covers with drag in the sides and buckle under the weight of rain water, ice, and snow.
  • Leave Some Water Atop Your Cover: When removing snow and water atop your pool cover, leave at least one inch of water to prevent wind damage during storms.
