I have a Lazy L pool and want to use a leaf cover this winter.

However, there is a sitting area on 1 side of the L and steps at the end.

So, a rectangle that would cover everything needs to be 26'x44'.

Leaf covers are available for 25'x45'.  So 1 dimension is fine and the other is a bit short.

However, covers typically have some extra on all sides.  Maybe 2' per side.  

Is this extra enough for my pool or should I go to the next size cover?  I worry that the next larger cover (30'x50') will be too large and unwieldy.
