I'm from Boston, MA.
I bought this house last year with an in ground pool, so basically I am so new as a pool owner.
This is my first year closing the pool. I went to a pool supply store, and bought a closing kit. I followed the direction. First step was to put down the anti free 1 week before closing. I did that, but then that following week I had to replace my roof. So, I decided to cover the pool up to keep the dirt away. Once the roof was done, it was then raining like crazy for several days.
Now after 2-3 weeks, I have the pool covered, but I haven't finished the following steps in the closing kit.
1. Should I remove the cover and continue with about 10 other steps? Will I be ok to close it still and take care of the water next year?
2. I installed the safety cover myself, so basically I did an ok job, so the cover is not completely stretched, so now there are water on top and a lot of leaves. What is the best way to remove these ugly leaves?
Thanks for all the help. I already spent 5k at the beginning of the season on this pool, so I completely out of budget to hire someone for closing. They charge too much here.
I appreciate for all comments and suggestions in helping me with this matter.
