Re: Do I need to cut a solar cover to fit?
You want to cut it about 1" smaller than the pool on all sides so it "floats" on the water surface. Use a separate cover on the spa. If it is too big to handle and you don't use a cover reel you can cut the cover into smaller sections and put them on the pool individually. THis is often useful with odd shaped pools.
