STANDARD WINTER COVER INSTALLATION

TO INSTALL YOUR SWIMMING POOL COVER

1. Place the box containing the cover at either end of the swimming pool. Open the box and place the cover on the deck. Roll the cover out along the deck.

2. Loosely tie down the 2 corners of the cover to the corner fence posts or deck support. Make sure the proper side of the cover will be facing up when you pull the other 2 corners across the swim area.

3. Using two people on opposite sides of the cover, take the leading edge of the cover in hand and pull it tightly between you. Walk the cover to the opposite end of the pool, being careful not to dip the leading edge into the water or catch it on any protruding objects. Loosely tie down the remaining 2 corners.

4. Allow approximately 12-14 inches of pool cover to lay on the deck, with the remainder draped into and across the pool where it is supported by the underlying water.

NOTE – IF USING A SAFETY COVER, SEE THE DIRECTIONS FOR INSTALLING THE LOOP-LOC SAFETY COVER.
 

SECURING THE COVER

WATER SLEEVES

1. If the cover is so equipped, thread the water sleeves through the loops of the cover with the filler valve facing up.

2. Once in place, fill the water sleeves approximately half full. This allows more than sufficient holding power while leaving room for expansion as the water freezes during the winter.

TIE DOWNS

1. Tie one end of the rope to the grommets or tarp tabs of the cover every four feet and the other end to the deck supports.

2. To protect the pool cover from high winds, additional rope (not supplied) can be laced back and forth across the pool. This will hold the cover down from the top and help alleviate any stress from excessively high winds. For the best high-wind protection, water sleeves should also be used.

DANGER –WARNING                                                                                    

DO NOT ALLOW LARGE QUANTITIES OF WATER, SNOW AND ICE TO BUILD UP ON THE SURFACE OF YOUR POOL COVER

Two inches or less of water on your cover is permissible. Any more than this should be removed as too much water on the pool cover will cause excessive stress on the grommets and/or tarp tabs. Excessive weight will displace the water in the pool itself allowing an overflow situation. If you are unable to remove the water, loosen or cut the ropes and add new ropes.

CAUTION- FAILURE TO FOLLOW EXACT WINTERIZING INSTRUCTIONS COULD LEAD TO IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO YOUR POOL LINER FROM FALLING ICE IN THE SPRING.
