Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Dirt Defender 8-Year Above-Ground Winter Pool Cover. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.60 stars, and the price range is $22.95-$70.00 (Based on size).

The Dirt Defender 8-Year Round Above-Ground Winter Pool Cover has the strength and durability to withstand hard use and weather. Rugged polyethylene scrim and coating means this cover can withstand winter's worst. The Pool Cover is UV-protected, so it won't surrender to the damaging effects of direct sunlight and lasts for many years. The cover's black underside retards algae growth and heat sealed seams means a crystal clear pool next spring. The big 4-feet overlap ensures a proper fit for above ground pools unlike covers with 3-feet overlaps. Dirt defender covers are held secure with a heavy duty cable and winch tightener that is anchored by rip proof metal grommets.

Some reviewers showed their discomfort towards the thin and flimsy material that allows water seepage.

Overall, the Dirt Defender Above Ground Winter Pool Cover is a perfect way to keep your pool clean from leaves and debris. Backed with good quality and durability, this light weight cover is highly recommended product at the right price. The Dirt Defender cover comes in many different shapes and sizes to covers all kind of pools.

Seems like this pool cover is made in China and imported from there and may not have any system to honor warranty in US. May be you can take it back to place where you bought it from or ship it back to seller.
