    wow these are all so interesting looking………..
    you will ruin your pool cover if you let it freeze and thaw……… no?

  • It’s 20 years old, has survived many winters by the Grace of God.
    I wish I could control the weather, then I’d be Al Gore! haha
    The cover is designed to take the abuse.

    that is so good….I used to use solar covers and they lasted 2 seasons………

  • These covers are built by Anchor Pool Covers.
    I’ve seen it hold 4 ft of snow. Pool has to have water in it to support that weight.

    the water must freeze as well….

  • Usually does, we have to keep the level below the tiles, or they pop.
    Lost a bunch two years ago. I’m now an expert at tile repair.
