You see that little velcro strap above your finger? Those are there for a reason, pull that tent down over the base properly. :/

Thanks for the tip, I'm going to try your Technique. I see exactly what you're doing unlike someone else. I'm on my second canopy, my first one completely collapsed. I take it camping and I've sat out there for hours pushing the rain off many times but this past year it got me in the middle of the night. Total collapse. Those velcro straps just don't pull it tight enough.


Cool we have one that covers our new deck. Thanks for the tip, It pored down rain yesterday yesterday and our stood up. I have it anchored on our deck with screws to hole the legs down and it didn't even try to blow away


something worked better for me just place one pencil size hole in the key spot each side.


Or you could also try setting it up as it’s intended and it should work better

Solid Vinyl vs Mesh Inground Winter Pool Cover; Which is Better?

Should I get a solid

Should I get a solid vinyl or mesh inground pool cover?

Mesh pool covers typically cost $200–$600 less than a solid vinyl pool cover and last 10–15 years. They don't need a pump on top and generally require no work during the offseason. However, the pool water gets dirty and algae can grow. Solid vinyl pool covers last 7–11 years and keep the pool water clean so that it requires less maintenance in the spring. However, they cost more than mesh covers and need a pump.

So you can close a pool and winterize with a solid vinyl pool cover and use no chemicals or automatic cleaners until you open it again in spring?

Now a new mesh cover has been launched by Loop-Loc called "Aqua-Xtreme" which deters algae growth and drains lightning-quick. Unlike other light blocking covers, this one drains up to 80 gallons per minute without clogging, giving you complete peace of mind. It gathers to my opinion, the advantages of the Solid and of the mesh, so you don't have to choose ;)

Marien Cole

After 30 years of vinyl, your video allowed me to explore the mesh option.  No thanks.  I'll stay with my solid vinyl pool covers.  Crystal clear water when I open my pool in the spring is what I want to see.  THANK YOU for the informative video.


How do I keep snow buildup off it, or huge puddles during winter or spring. Most pumps work but water freezes in hose.
