Rectangular Winter Covers
Rectangle Winter Pool Covers
Inground winter covers protect pools during the cold winter months from unwanted debris and algae. The UV resistant material keeps sunlight and contaminants out of your pool, preserving your pool water while reducing the need for chemical application. The covers are designed to be incredibly durable with heavy-duty, heat treated seams – ensuring your inground pool is ready for the next season.
Some winter pool covers are thick and are designed to protect your inground swimming pool from falling debris and small animals. Other winter covers are lightweight and built for easy installation and removal. Thicker covers are likely to carry a longer warranty from the manufacturer, but are usually more expensive than lighter covers.
To find the best size for your rectangle winter cover, you will need to measure the length and width of the pool. Inground winter pool covers are designed to have a 4’-5’ overlap on each side.
Installing a Rectangle Winter Cover for Inground Pools
- After pulling the cover across the pool, use winter cover blocks around the edge of the cover – placing them 18 inches apart.
- Another option (besides winter cover blocks) are water tubes. To prevent breaking water tubes, only fill them about 3/4 of the way full.
