winter pool covers

Postby strider » Sun 09 Sep, 2007 15:37

I have a 15 foot inground pool. Should I use a solid or a mesh cover. The pool is located in montreal canada. Very long and cold winters here.

mesh or solid

Mesh covers are safety first. They allow silt and sunlight to reach the water. Besides the safety benefit, a mesh cover is the easiest to remove. It does not require cleaning and may be folded and stowed while wet.

A solid cover will keep your pool clean however, it must be cleaned and dried before stowing.

Mesh safety covers cost several thousands of dollars and solid covers cost several hundres.
