Pool covers, while an essential part of your pool’s maintenance, are often a hassle to deal with. They can be bulky and awkward to move around. However, there are several ways you can make it easier to roll up your cover at the end of each season. Below are some tips on how to roll up your pool cover with a roller so that next spring comes sooner than expected.
Check your coverage
Before you roll up your pool cover, make sure it is in good condition. Check the stitching on both sides of the cover and make sure they are tight and secure. You should also check for any tears or holes in the material.
If your pool cover is too large for your pool cover roller, then it will be difficult to roll up properly and may even fall off while you’re trying to roll it up. Make sure that your pool cover fits tightly around all four corners of your pool before rolling it up so that no water escapes through gaps in between seams or panelling lines (if applicable).
Finally, determine how heavy or light your roller is based on how much force is required to turn over each section during use–and whether or not extra help might be needed from another person during these processes!
Make sure water is gone from your cover
To ensure that your pool cover is ready to be rolled, you must first remove all the water from it. This can be done with a hose or vacuum. If you have a leaf blower, use it to blow away any debris on top of your pool cover.
Use the right roller
A good roller will have a solid base and be able to support the weight of your pool cover. It should also be made specifically for your type of pool cover, which can vary based on material and thickness.
Rollers are available in both manual and electric models that make rolling much easier than it would be with just your own strength alone.
Clean the pool cover before rolling it up
To ensure that your pool cover is clean before you roll it up and store it for the winter, there are a few steps to follow.
First and foremost, use a brush to remove any dirt or debris from the surface of the pool cover. This will help prevent stains from forming on your pool cover when storing it during inclement weather. If there are stubborn stains on your cover, use water pressure from a garden hose or leaf blower (or both) to dislodge them before washing with soap and water in order to avoid damaging any part of your equipment or injuring yourself in the process.
Remove any debris from the edge of the pool cover before rolling it up
Use a leaf rake to remove any leaves or twigs that have been collected on top of your pool cover. You can also use a leaf blower to blow them off, and then use a vacuum cleaner to clean up any remaining debris.
Now that you know the tricks to roll your pool cover with ease, it’s time to get rolling! Remember that this process can take some time and effort, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be able to roll up that big piece of plastic in no time.
