Last year when I closed our pool I did not have a winter cover. Living in the Lower Mainland of BC, I did not think I would need one. A Pool newbie mistake indeed. Leaves, dirt, and more ended up in our pool and opening it this spring was a huge task. Well this year, I am not making the same mistake. This year, I have an awesome Premium HD Tan Winter Cover from Pool Supplies Canada.
Pretty quickly after draining the pool we ended up with it looking like this…
See those leaves, dirt, algae starting. Argh. So even in closing, I needed to get the leaves out, dirt out, and algae out. I needed to partially fill the pool for the cover to sit on, and I needed to put the pool closing chemicals in.
Pool Supplies Canada has an entire lineup of Winter Pool Covers in all shapes, sizes, and level of protection.
We get quite a bit of rain and wind where we live and that rain can freeze and thaw a lot. So in assessing which winter pool cover we would need, we needed to keep in mind the weather patterns we get in our area. In the end, we decided on the Premium HD Tan Winter Cover.
Detailed Product Description
Protect your above ground or inground swimming pool with the new heavy duty, Premium HD Tan Winter Cover. It is made with the heaviest-duty and strongest rip-proof polyethylene fabric available for pool covers. The tan coloured material is reinforced with 14 x 14 threads per square inch for maximum strength, and the material used is 50% stronger and also lighter than other comparable covers. The premium-quality marine grade 1.5 inch binding along the perimeter of the cover further protects against wear and tear.
Made from high-density, rip-proof polyethylene material
14 x 14 scrim count (threads per square inch) for maximum strength
Top surface is protected to resist damage from UV rays, and the under side of cover is black to prevent algae growth
Perimeter boasts heavy-duty binding to prevent wear and tear
Round and Oval covers include a winch and coated cable to secure the cover to the pool
Rectangle covers have water bag loops to secure the cover around the outside of the pool
Every cover comes with additional material (round and oval covers have a true, 4 foot overhang, and rectangle covers have a true, 6 foot overhang) to ensure your pool is fully covered during the off season
Manufacturer’s warranty: 15 years (3 years full) – Against seam separations only. This warranty does not cover any punctures, tears, excessive abrasion, pest damage, etc.
Since we have an 18 foot round pool, our 18 foot round Premium HD Tan Winter Cover came with a winch and coated cable to secure the cover to the pool. Take that wind storms!
I am really excited to open our pool this spring as I think we are going to have an easy time with having closed it properly with a good winter pool cover that will keep the leaves, dirt, and small rocks the birds tend to drop in the pool, out of our pool. I will have to provide you an update of our pool opening experience in the spring and let you know just how well our winter cover worked and helped us making opening our pool an easy task.
