    Please start your own thread for questions Thanks, Butterfly

    Unfortunately due circumstances out of my control our pool was not covered this winter either and although there is no serious damage i have a layer of leaves at the bottom that probably exceeds 2 inches, its a vinyl lined in ground pool, i have a place to dump the waste near by. Have you heard of anyone using an external pump to pump out leaves ex. a dredge pump. What kind of damage could i potentially be doing to my vinyl lining. Any other alternatives that does not include bagging or scooping leaves?

    All I can say is that I've been in this situation with my inground. The leaf volume is often worse than it appears. Try a half hours work with a leaf net and let it settle then look again. A bunch of them will break up and then could be dealt with by vacuuming with a normal pool vacuum if you have that ability. Otherwise, trot out to a tool rental store and talk to them about something that might help.
