first off i'm glad to find a forum like this filled with people of great exerience.. I know i'll get a lot out of using this website trying to make the most of our new pool..
I was wondering, we live in Florida where we have daily rainshowers in the summer months.. also we're in a fairly wooded neighborhood so I have 'slight' debris every day, more when it storms..
but my question is.. would you recommend covering the pool (18' x 52" round) with a totally sealed cover and pool pillow beneath.. or use one of the covers designed with holes in it to allow rain to go through..
ideally i didn't want rain to go into the pool but i'm afraid of the water damage from the water flowing over the sides until we can build up more.. also i don't think the sealed version will drain all the water off before it pools into a weighted nightmare that will go into the pool trying to undo the cover anyhow..
another thing was to cut down on mosquitoes overnight and whatnot..
if anyone lives in florida, or anywhere really, and has a pool outside without being screened in.. what do you do to cover it.. or not cover it? the only reason i specified Florida is we have a specific climate here.. it's not like the desert or northern areas.. summer rains and mosquitoes are big here and unfortunately leaves and spanish moss...
