We live in the southeast and have a new above ground pool with many trees surrounding it. The leaves and gumballs clog up the filter daily, which we clean. We are heading on vacation for a week and are trying to figure out how to inhibit the clogs.
Can we put a pool cover on it to keep out the leaves and such?
If so, what kind would be good for the southeast? Just a tarp? One that we can use for winter? What is a recc'd winter cover for above ground pools in the southeast?
If not a cover, any other suggestions on how to inhibit the clogs?
