VERY POOR POOL COVER QUALITY
Completely a piece of junk and a waste of money, PLEASE DO NOT BUY!!!!!! . I paid $104.plus and now it's on sale for $49.something, which I can understand why there is such a price decrease, they are trying to get this pool cover out of thier stock because of it problems. Remember what I said about it being a big waste of money. The trim around the pool cover that has the rivets in it. completely shredded and pulled away from the cover. Plus!! I went to pull the cover when removing the cover this month (which I pull just little bit on one side then on the other side, like I always did before). Which was not a hard pull at all) and it made a tear about approximately 2" long. BTA-MALL says it has a 10 year warranty, lets see if BTA-MALL will stands behind their word, this is really a piece of junk....Plus all the nasty water leak through to the water under the pool cover, what a mess did I have this year. I even purchased a leave net cover to go on top of the pool cover trying to save on the pool cover.

seems to work pretty well, but I found out for fall I have to keep it very taunt so the water will go thru it and the leaves will blow off of it. then after all the leaves are down, I am going to let the slack down so the heavy snow can lay across the water and not pull on the sides of the pool. if water can go down thru it, then obviously it can go back up through it too.
remains to be seen how well it will hold up by spring... my fingers are crossed.

A WASTE OF MONEY
A WASTE OF MONEY!!! I purchased this cover in the summer of 2015 to cover my pool at the close of the season. It was flimsy at best, but I decided to use it anyway. Well, as I expected it did not hold up. In fact it gave way to the weight of a small animal that wandered on to the cover. Very tragic. If you are considering purchasing a new cover for you above ground pool, do not consider this one.

Inexpensive doesn't always mean cheap. But in THIS case....
How does one say "Cheap" in Chinese? "Robelle". Weak seams started tearing without much stress, irregularly placed grommets make installation difficult (especially when some of them fall out as you unfold the cover). I don't expect to get more than one season out of it and will be saving my warranty card. To be continued.

Cover works good. It allows water to seep in, but keeps the debris out of pool.

The cover is a nice sturdy cover big enough to cover the sides of the pool, exactly as shown in the pictures.

Unaccpetable quality and construction
This pool cover did not meet my expectations for three reasons. First, it was not as sturdy as the description led me to believe. Second, straight out of the box one of the grommets was bent completely in half, I had to use a pair of pliers to open it. Third, I used rope and stakes to help hold the front end in place while I pulled the cover over my pool and when I went to install the cable I found the material ripping around several of the grommets. I did not, in my opinion, put undo stress on the cover such that the material should rip. The only reason I did not remove the cover and send it back was I had already treated the pool water and drained down to winter layup. I could not wait another week for another cover. Very dissatisfied with this product.

Good price but I guess with that's comes poor quality
Good price but I guess with that's comes poor quality. The wire tightened broke when fist put it on. Then it ripped in a couple places we duct taped it to get through the winter. I guess if you don't want to pay a lot this is the one but if you want it to last more then one season then this is NOT the one.

Time will tell
The sizing and material appear to be what was advertised but the quality is questionable. There are loose threads of the material all around the cover, if you pull on them they continue to remove material from the cover so I had to cut them. This is the first season to use it so we will see how it holds up.

Jury is out
Easy to attach to the pool. It looks substantial and fairly well made. Some of the stitching is not top quality. If it makes it through this winter and can still be used for future winters, I'll give it 4 or 5 stars.
