We only get to experience our first time closing our pool, one time. So let’s do it right. One thing new above ground pool owners don’t take into account when winterizing their pool, is the wind whipping and beating up their new winter cover and possibly blowing the cover into the pool. So, what is to be done about it? One can either wrap it with winter cover wrap , or snap on some winter cover clips and keep the cover tight and snug so that the wind can’t get up under the cover. When doing this, please make sure to take into consideration having enough slack material so that the cover is resting directly on top of the swimming pool water so as to distribute the weight of the water on the cover from rain water.
