Pool Covers: Some time ago I advertised a pool roller and offered to give info on where to get covers. The roller didn’t sell but I have had lots of people asking about the supplier and they have all come back to me saying they agree that they are good value. So I thought I would post this for everyone! The supplier is www.outlet-piscinas.com You have a choice of buying uncut or fully shaped and edged. You can size and buy online but if your shape isn’t shown contact the sales team, they are very helpful. We have had ours a season now and are very pleased indeed.
