Fine Mesh Winter Pool Covers for above ground pools
Do Not Buy This Cover
This is the worst pool cover. Water accumulates in the center, you cannot get the water off without all the debris falling into the pool. I don't think the mesh lets any water pass through but water does come up. If you take the water off with a pump, it drains the pool. This is a no win situation.

A GREAT COVER!! (W3830)
Our above-ground pool was installed in 1988--we've used MANY pool covers over the years, and this one has been the BEST!! Purchased our first one in 2006, and it finally needs a replacement--I just ordered a new one. It catches all debris, small to large. We live on a farm, so there is always debris flying 'round here! Twice during the winter, (Nov & Feb) we use our leaf skimmer to remove the debris from the cover to prevent any decomp from entering the water. We add one bag of SUPERSHOCK at the same time, which we have found prevents any algae growth or discoloration of the poolwater. When we open the pool the beginning of March, it's pretty darn clean & is ready for swimmers in less than 48 hours. A great product for less than $100.00!

Worst Mistake in Purchasing
I purchased a fine mesh cover for my pool last autumn (2009) and installed it properly according to the very little directions that was provided. The cover accumulated leaves, dirt and bird droppings all winter long and sagged into my pool water. I could not get the water off the cover and thus all this accumulated dirt went into the pool when we took the cover off yesterday (May 2010). And to our surprise our water was a medium color green! How could the water turn green if no sunlight was hitting it? Obviously, the sunlight penetrates through the fine mesh and turns the pool water green. So, obviously we can't enjoy our pool this upcoming Memorial Day weekend because we are still struggling in getting our pool water clean. DO NOT BUY!

Recently purchased fine mesh cover. Cover's fine, the cable is garbage. Company should offer different grades of cable. Cable tangled very easily. Took forever to untangle. I do not reccomend the cheap cable that comes with this product. Need higher grade wire.
