I recently bought your 20x40 inground "mesh" pool cover.  We've had a lot of rain recently and there is 6 inches of water on top of the cover.  Since it's mesh, I assumed the water would go through the cover and the cover would rise as the water is now deeper underneath it.  Instead, it's almost acting like a "solid" cover.  So my question is, shoud I pump the water off of the top of the cover.  I have a submersible pump that's easy enough to pump the water off.

Thanks! Matt

If the mesh cover was close to the water or sitting on the water, it is common for water to build up on top. We recommend using a cover pump to remove the water. Then pull the mesh cover as tight as possible so it is not sitting so close to the pool water.
