I have a new house which came with a pool. My neighbors have two gigantic Live Oak trees. For a month, the leaves from the tree filled my pool (and yard), clogged my filter, and generally gave me something to do for 15-20 hours a week. Then, when the leaves were done, 10 solid days of the "Oak Worm" pollen has fallen. It actually clogged my pump impeller - even though my wife and I were emptying the skimmers every 3-4 hours. The pollen also "ate" all my chlorine and deposited about an inch of **** on the bottom of my pool - more than the Polaris could handle.
So I want a cover. But I don't know if it's possible. Here's an admittedly terrible pic of the pool:
As you can see, the back wall of the pool is vertical - rising up in the middle to about 4-5 feet above the water, and there's a flower bed behind that extends about 8 feet to the back fence (there's even a tree there). On one side there's a brick pergola that almost touches my pool edge. The two tiled spots on the back wall are waterfalls and are inset about 1.5 feet with a seat below the waterline so you can sit under the falls.
Every cover I've ever seen has been on a pool that you could walk all the way around - where all sides are in the ground.
Is there a way to cover something like this?
