Ask Mud Slingers: What is the Best Way to Remove Snow from the Top of my Pool’s Cover?

Best Way to Remove Snow from Pool CoverAsk Mud Slingers: It’s winter, so of course, we’ve been getting a lot of snow. What is the best way to remove snow from the top of my pool’s cover?

It’s great that you are being proactive by looking for solutions to a pool problem like this one. Leaving snow on top of your pool cover for long periods of time can cause more issues than you’ll want. Heavy snow is known for stretching pool covers and even ripping them. In addition, those who do not remove the snow could be left with water to remove later.

The great thing is, it isn’t that difficult to remove the snow from your pool cover even if you don’t have expensive equipment.

The easiest way to remove the snow involves a broom with a long handle. Many pool owners likely have one and it can for sure come in handy during the winter months. If your area has continuous snow, you’ll want to keep the broom nearby to clear off the cover to keep the snow from accumulating.

Whatever you do, make sure you don’t use a shovel or any other sharp objects that could damage your cover.
