I don't know how many people look at me cross eyed when I tell them the cover is as dangerous as the pool itself. I almost bought it a couple of winters ago when I stepped into deep snow and it gave way into a pool which had been covered, with no fences or signs that it was there. Now that the spring thaw is here, many covers have two to three feet of water standing on them.

Warn your clients!!!!
