Installing your winter cover varies on if you have an above ground or inground pool, and that effects what you need.
For above ground pools, we include a cord and winch, which is used to secure the cover. If you live in a windier area, you might want to consider getting cover clips
, wall bags
or a cover seal
, as well, to secure your cover even more. You also want to make sure you have an air pillow
to secure below your cover. This will help absorb energy as the freezing water expands, make removing water from your solid cover easier and ensure your mesh cover remains at your pool’s surface.
For an inground pool, you’ll want enough water bags or blocks
to go around the perimeter of your pool. Once ½ or ¾ filled with water, they will anchor your winter cover in place.
