Does anyone have any tips on removing a solar cover? I have a 30ft, 8mil cover and the pool sits right next to several large pine trees. After leaving it on for a day or two, it's pretty covered in pine needles and tiny pine cone thingies. When I remove the cover, about 90% of that stuff falls into the pool and I have to spend about 10-15 minutes skimming to clean it all up.
I don't have a reel, though I don't see how that would keep the stuff on top from falling in either. So, I wanted to see if anyone has any tips on removing the cover while keeping all the junk on top out of the pool water. Keep in mind that it is a very large cover, which is pretty difficult to handle, especially with only 1 person, though we typically have 2.
