    Time to pay the piper

    Hi all, happy Memorial Day O got a late start in closing/covering my pool last fall due to the birth of my daughter and now I have to attone for my sin. The punishment is leaves... lots of leaves on the bottom. What's the best way to remove them without vaccuming and having to empty the strainer every 5 minutes?

    Invest in a leaf rake (net bag that goes on your pole) or a leaf eater (also attaches to your pole, is a vacuum with a large leaf bag that is powered by your garden hose. Works on exactly the same principle as a pressure side pool cleaner except you push it around with your pole.)
    Leaf eaters easier if there are a lot of leaves!
