    Dealing with leaves - cover recommendation

    We live South of Houston, so our winters are mild. Most years we only hit freezing a couple of times, and almost never for 24 hours straight. Last year we took our pool down, and it was a huge pain.

    We have a 13' Intex metal frame, with a hard plumbed sand filter with swg.

    We are already starting to get a lot of leaves falling, even though the days are in the 90s and the pool is still getting used. Any suggestions on leaf covers that can be removed easily?

    I am thinking about leaving the pool open and running all winter. Any thoughts on that?

    Thank you,
    Rick

    No reason to close your pool if you just add a little chlorine and circulate some. Not much difference in leaf covers. Welcome.
