We tried to siphon the water off our cover a few days ago, but after 24 hours decided that we're taking water out of the pool, too. So now I have clear water under the cover and the green murk on top. The cover is shot anyway, so is it a bad idea to cut a hole in it near the skimmer and then use a vacuum hose to pump some of the water off using the pool pump...backwash to waste? There shouldn't be too many leaves, just a bunch of maple seed pods. I just hate to see me dump too much of the much in the pool.
