I am sure this question has been asked a thousand times, but i am wondering what people recommend for keeping leaves from building up in the skimmer basket?
I am going to be going away for 12 days, i have someone keeping an eye on the pool, but we have a tree right over our pool and i am concerned about leaves filling up the skimmer basket.
I created an external filter, similar to the picture below with pvc piping and plastic netting material. It seems to work ok for now, but i tested it by putting a cloth all over the whole thing, even the bottom, and i found that it took about 10 secs to it to run dry. I am sure it will never get that bad, but i still have it on on mind.
Does anyone have any other recommendations?
