This is the first fall I have spent in the house I purchased with a pool in the back yard. I have a lovely white oak tree that overhangs the pool and it has been the greatest blessing throughout the summer... now I am paying the piper. Acorns. I have been sick for the last couple of days and haven't gotten out to do my regular maintenance and I must have had 1000 acorns on the bottom of the pool today. I vacced everything up but of course I was met with some pretty ugly stains. Going to up the chlorine and give it a good scrub again tomorrow.
So, other than buying a cover - which I am loathe to do because the entire back of my house looks out onto the pool and aesthetically I much prefer the look of a pool to the look of a cover - what should I be doing to help make acorn season as painless as possible. Also, any guess on how long acorn season lasts?
