How low will you be dropping your water level for winter?
If you plan to drop your pool water more than a foot, add that distance to your overall length and width measurements.**A good rule of thumb is to compensate for your water level drop. Any measurement over a foot should be doubled.**For example
, the water level is dropped 2 feet below its normal level in our 20'x40' rectangle pool. Therefore, the distance added to both the length and width would be 2 feet. So, we would be looking for a cover meant o for at least a 22'x42' pool.Another example
, the water level is dropped 3 feet; that is 52 feet more than the standard 1-foot. To compensate for the level drop, 4-feet should be added to both length and width. The necessary cover for this example would need to be recommended for at least a 24'x44' pool.
