The 12×24 rectangular above ground pool cover is manufactured by Intex and is one of their most popular items in the consumer pool accessories business. This is one of the best quality above ground pool covers on the market today. The Intex cover is produced out of anodized aluminum which is a strong material that is light weight. It offers excellent resistance to rusting as well as the corrosion that usually forms with other more flimsy cover materials.
The Intex cover comes standard in a single color but you can inquire about a double or triple color option if you so desire. It has the standard “sail away” snap closure with the “intake/reception” area being left open. This model of pool cover does not have an attached drainage hole. The manufacturer guarantees that with proper care this type of cover will withstand winds up to 130 mph. Intex offers a lifetime warranty on the swim cover and bumper, which is why they offer such great service and compatibility with other manufacturers products.
The Intex cover offers great design and is designed to resist the UV rays which are natural elements that contribute to discoloration and fading of metal covers. It also features heavy duty grommets which are not found in some other models. Some of the other attractive features of this model include the bull nose effect, skimmer edge, and the “chip and seal” system which helps with water leakage.
The Intex cover is also available in a variety of sizes to fit most standard size pools. It is also weatherproof and can be installed over a concrete base or on top of it. This model is fully licensed and meets all local guidelines for your particular area. It also offers lifetime warranty and unlimited mile warranty coverage.

One of the best selling points of this model is the rain cover which is designed to keep your pool dry during storms. It provides an added layer of protection from the sun and rain. This cover is weatherproof and waterproof which ensures you maximum protection from the harmful effects of water. It also helps keep the pool clean and free from leaves and debris.
Intex cover also comes with a special rubberized padlock which can be locked to secure the cover against intruders. You can also add an adjustable cable release for added security. This model also has two mesh net covers which can be added to prevent leaves and debris from entering the pool. The two mesh sides will allow you to separate the cover into two sections. This helps to keep the water from entering the pool while the padlock prevents unwanted guests.
Installation of this pool cover can be done by professional pool contractors. If you want to install it yourself, you can follow the installation instructions provided with the product. However, due to the complex design of the Intex cover, it may not be suitable for DIY installations.

Air pumps can also be installed using the included mounting bracket. All you need to do is attach it to the pool cover and you’re good to go.
