This is our first home with a pool. It's a 18x38 freeform pool with KatchaKid safety net installed. Also have a bubble-type solar cover. I'm in San Francisco area so the pool will not be closed but also not used till March atleast. We left the solar cover on the pool during the summer but can't do it anymore because rain water will collect on top of it. If we remove the cover, there is no protection from falling leaves and other debris. I'm just trying to reduce the pool maintenance chores for the winter. Here are some options:
1. Remove the solar cover and just rely on the automatic pool sweep to do the cleanup.
2. Install a leaf-net on top of Katchakid.
3. Somehow use the solar cover to catch the leaves.
All suggestions are welcome.
