Measure Pool for a Pool Cover – Quick Easy Tips


I often get asked how to measure your pool for a pool cover so I thought I would post this to show you how to do it. It’s really simple and will only take you a few minutes to do.

Before you start, you’ll need a tape measure. It’s also easier if you have an assistant to help you.

Step 1

To measure your pool, simply measure the widest and longest edges.


For shaped pools, treat as rectangular


Step 2

Add 15cm to both measurements to obtain the minimum pool cover size needed.
e.g. If your measurements were 10×5.5m. Then you need a cover that is at least 10.15×5.65m in size.

Step 3

On the product page, select the appropriate cover size. Don’t worry if the cover you choose is too big. It is designed to be cut to size using household scissors when you install it. It is better to have a cover that is big rather then too small.
