I closed my Pool last year in late October (when the water temperature was well below 60 degrees) and opened it last week (pool temperature was again below 60 degrees). I had a LOOP LOC Mesh cover put on and followed all the procedures of Pool School. When it was opened on Friday, my FC was zero and I had a pool full of leaves. I cleaned the leaves, added a lot of Bleach, and my pool was looking good in 2 days.
My question is whether it is normal to have so many leaves get under the cover. Was the cover not as tight as it could have been, or is it just not possible to keep out the leaves? Picture of cover below.IMG_2773.jpg
