Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Having an above-ground pool is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy life — in the summer, that is. Once winter rolls around, it can quickly become a pain to keep the thing clean, as leaves, dirty water, and debris can all collect inside. If you install one of these covers, however, you can prevent all that nastiness from penetrating your pristine water, saving you lots of maintenance time and money. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best above ground pool cover for winter on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 27, 2018:

Since all options basically do the same thing, the primary focus was on durability. Don't expect any of these to last forever, but given their relatively low price tag, they'll likely still save you money in the long run, even if you have to replace them every year or two.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
