Installation is simple. Below we’ll tell you how to measure for your pool and how to install the cover yourself. 

Our pool covers:
* Will fit any shaped pool – easily cut to size with scissors
* Can be installed by anyone – no special tools required 

How to Measure Your Pool

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 x 5m. Then you need a cover that is at least 10.15×5.15m in size.

Step 3

Order your cover. Use the size selector menu on the order page to select the closest size. Don’t worry if the cover is larger than your pool

Step 3

With the broom, smooth and push the cover up against the edge of the pool. If necessary, trim a little more off the cover so the cuts are straight and even.

You’re done! Now you can enjoy warmer and cleaner pool water.
