    Pool near trees and plants, anything to help?

    Can anyone give me advice about handling a pool that is placed attractively near the forest edge, with lots of plants etc. There is a constant stream of **** that gets in --- leaves, dirt, etc. It it only loses 1-1.5 ppm FC a day. When i run the pump and polaris after several hours the water is very clear. And later it isn't cloudy, still clear, but loaded with organic stuff. I thought about a net of some sort-but i'm sure it would look terrible. Just how much damage is the debris causing, other than eating chlorine?

    I would say to make sure you have good skimming action and a good robot pool cleaner

    Unless it's staying there long enough to stain, it's only consuming chlorine.
