    removing pool cover

    last year i was reading a thread which had lots of handy tips
    one of the tips was removing the pool cover on an inground pool and diverting all of the water, leaves and debris into the skimmer box
    i can't find that post now, does anybody remember how to do this or a link to the post
    thanks,
    Andrew

    I wouldn't dump the dirty water into the skimmer. What type of cover do you have?

    Re: removing pool cover

    haven't bought a cover yet
    we get a massive amount of leaves etc in the pool
    during summer need to vacumn every other day and would like to avoid that over winter
    skimmer basket needs emptying every 2 days as is completely full of leaves
    a few trees will accidentally fall over in the winter storms but the council will notice if a lot of trees suddenly fall over

    You can get a safety mesh or solid cover or a water bag cover. The mesh will stay dry as will a safety solid with a drain panel. A waterbag or safety solid without a drain panel will need a cover pump.

    Lucky you. At times I have to empty mine twice a day! Still, I enjoy the trees and the wildlife that comes with them.
    20,000 gal in-ground plaster pool with sand filter. Replastered recently. Mostly adding bleach and acid. CYA was high when I took over.
