The pool mate cover has been working really well for us. Our backfire neighbor has 3 Oaktrees that come over into our yard and makes a huge mess into our pool!
The cover serves its purpose, but is just a round Tarp. The bottom is held with a racheted cable, so air/wind & dirt can get into the pool. If you live in a windy area (as I do) would not recommend.
This cover held up well and stayed secure to the pool all winter long. It is permeable, so rainwater will flow through to the pool, but all the leaves, bugs and other debris are prevented from getting into the pool. It got covered in algae, so we just threw it away and will get another one for next winter. But the price is good enough to make that feasible.
