I have read a couple of threads on the forum that ask the same question but I wanted to bring up the topic again hoping for more responses. Anyway, I am basically not planning on closing my pool this winter since I am in Florida and don't deal with too many freezes, but I do have lots of oak tree leaves to deal with, especially in the early spring. Can these leaf net covers I have seen mentioned on the forum be used WITHOUT a cover underneath them? The ones I have seen online all are designed to be used on top of a cover. Has anybody actually used one of these nets without a cover under it? If so, is it easy enough to pull the net full of leaves off the pool without losing debris into the pool?
