    Best way to get the cover off the pool?

    Our cover has maybe 1" or less of green water in it so I don't think I can siphon it out. Is there a trick to getting it off and getting the least amount of water in the pool? We've had a lot of rain lately so the water level in the pool is high (there are holes at the posts and I guess that's where the rain gets in) so it's all spread out. It is an 18' above ground pool.

    Blow it off with a leaf blower. "Pull" it off with the pool brush.

    By pulling sections of the cover around you can get the water too all pool in a fairly small area, where it will be practical to syphon most of it off.
