I live in the Northeast & have an above ground pool. The past few years we've had problems with our winter covers & it seems to be such a pain. My question is whether or not I can leave the pool uncovered over the winter? I thought I had read something about this before but can't seem to find it. I wondered if I could just use a leaf net to keep the big debris out. Obviously, I would probably need to keep the pump running until the temps dropped regularly below 50 (that would be my guess) and I would probably need to open up a little earlier in the spring. Any thoughts or comments? Has anyone tried this before?
I should add that I have an Aquador skimmer cover so I don't need to lower the water.
