If you have an above ground pool, you probably have a winter cover. Now is the time to start thinking about the best possible ways to hold your cover in place this winter to ensure that your pool stays clean and protected. There are several methods available to hold your cover securely in place. Here are the tools that we suggest:
- Cover Clips – These handy fasteners are tough! They grip your top rail like a clothes pin and hold your cover on tightly. Cover clips keep your above ground pool’s cover in place and helps reduce the wear and tear on a winter cover from wind damage. Use two clips per upright or approximately every 16 to 18 inches.
- Cover Loc Jr. – If you are looking for a stronger hold that regular cover clips can offer, you should consider the Cover Loc Jr. system. It offers deluxe two-part cover locks that will not pull off in the strongest winter winds. Just snap together the 5″ male and female clips and your cover will stay firmly secured. They are perfect for high wind areas.
- Winter Cover Seal – In addition to cover clips, winter cover seal is a great option for keeping your cover in place. It offers a very simple solution to keep the wind from getting under your winter cover and causing damage and premature wear and tear. Its unique blend of tough poly-blend film wraps around your pool to seal out gusty winds. The secret to Cover Seal is a special blend of resins that enables this unique material to stretch and hold tightly over a long period of time, even during extreme cold weather. Cover Seal is also packed with U.V. inhibitors so that the sun will not weaken it.
