above ground winter pool cover

I am beginning my search for an above ground winter pool cover. I am looking for a heavy duty cover that will last a while. The websites I have visited do not state the thickness of the cover in mills so I have no way to gauge which one is the strongest. I just bought a small tarp to cover stuff in my yard and it was 10 mills which seems to be pretty heavy. Any suggestions in buying a pool cover. Thanks...

usually the thickness is measured by the warranty. Longer warranty thicker cover

That is exactly right. Stay away from the one and two year warranty covers. I made that mistake and it got two holes in it while it was being installed for the first time over my in-ground pool.

In 2008 I purchased an Oval Gold 15 YR AG Winter Cover $53.00.
In 2011 I purchased a Oval 8yr Ultra Armor Maxx Silver Winter Cover $33.97.

Needless to say I did not get anywhere near 15 or 8 years use of the covers..
