Regardless if you are using your above ground swimming pool or not you will need a swimming pool cover throughout the season. A cover for your above ground swimming pool will prevent dirt, bugs, sticks, and leaves from getting into your above ground swimming pool. You also need a swimming pool cover in order to prevent pets and children getting into the swimming pool when you don't want them in it.

Swimming pool makers will probably have a swimming pool cover that is designed to fit your swimming pool. If you have inherited a swimming pool or bought a used swimming pool you need to look at the label on the swimming pool and then look at the swimming pool company's website on the Internet in order to determine if the company also has a cover for your swimming pool. In addition, you should check with pool supply stores to determine if they have the brand of swimming pool cover that is designed for and in fact will fit your particular above ground swimming pool.

You can make an above ground swimming pool cover to keep out dirt, leaves, sticks, and insects by stretching a large tarp across your swimming pool cover. Drive some tent stakes into the ground at the places where the four corners of the tarp hang off the pool. Then you can attach some bungee cords to the four corners of the tarp.

If you want to close the swimming pool, simply attach the bungee cords to the tent poles and you will have a swimming pool cover. Remember that this swimming pool cover may not support much weight, and isn't designed to keep animals or children out of your swimming pool.

You can make a swimming pool cover for your hard sided above ground swimming pool out of plywood. If your swimming pool has hard sides that won't collapse if some weight is placed on them, you can use some pieces of plywood and lay them across the swimming pool. You should lay the plywood across the swimming pool after you have finished using it. Drive some tent stakes at numerous intervals around the swimming pool. In the plywood sections that are directly above the tent stakes drill a hole. Last attach a bungee cord to the holes in the plywood and the tent pole to keep the lid secure.
