Carefully follow these instructions for above ground pools:

  1. Properly prepare pool to receive cover.
  2. IMPORTANT: Before placing cover on pool make certain that all of the exposed sharp edges which might contact the cover are protected with cloth tape or masking tape.
  3. Insert cable through grommets on pool cover (under and over) as illustrated.
  4. Place cover over pool so that it hangs over side of pool about 12" - 18".
  5. Bring both ends of cable through opening A and B into tension clamp - one end of cable through opening A and the other end of cable through opening B.
  6. Continue to bring ends of cable through opening C - end no. 1 over and through opening C and end no. 2 under end through opening C as illustrated. Pull ends through until cable appears reasonably taut around pool edge.
  7. To supply additional cable tension to ensure pool cover is securely fixed, turn tension handle clockwise until cable is appropriately tightened.
  8. Rachet lock will automatically lock tension drum into correct position. NOTE: To loosen cable tension, simply turn tension handle clockwise about 1/4" and lift rachet lock out of its position - hold up and allow tension drum to unwind in a counter clockwise direction thereby releasing tension on cable.

FOR INGROUND POOLS:

  1. Properly prepare pool to receive cover.
  2. IMPORTANT: Before placing cover on pool, make certain that all of the exposed sharp edges which might contact the cover are protected with cloth tape or masking tape.
  3. Place cover over surface of pool and about 2-1/2 feet onto decking around entire pool. Insert empty water bags in sleeves, then fill bags with water. This will secure cover to pool deck.

The following diagrams show the correct method of installing your pool cover.
