Winter cover on above-ground with deck around one side?

Postby KFS » Tue 29 May, 2007 12:18

Our above ground pool is set-in to the side of a deck meaning that on one side it is basically an "in-ground" for all intents and purposes.

How do we install a winter-cover (it came with it) when it is designed to be "cinched" around the outside and we can't get to the out"side" on the area that is below deck.

Any input would be much appreciated so we can plan ahead.

TIA!

My last above-ground pool was just as you describe. I had to poke the cover down between the deck & pool, then crawl under the deck (amongst the spiders) to attach and cinch it down. A pain-in-the rear, but it worked great all winter long.

There isn't an end of the deck somewhere to crawl under? If not, you might consider cutting a "hatch" in the deck in an out of the way place. Then you just unscrew a few boards, and drops down to do the cover work. When in place you wouldn't even notice.
