OK... I started ignoring the pool when it started getting too cold to swim and now it has gathered a ton of leaves in it. I have cleaned out the leaves but unfortunately, they stained the bottom of the pool. Is there a fairly simple way of removing the stains? I've tried brushing but it didn't do much. I NEED to get a pool cover to keep leaves and other things out of the pool and thinking of a safety cover. I'd like to hear advice from more experienced pool owners on dealing with leaves and stains as well as what to look for in safety covers. I've been to a few websites for safety covers and see so many options from a wide variety of materials and specifications. I don't personally want anyone to walk around on the cover, but would like to make sure that it wouldn't be ruined if it were to accidently happen.
