    To cover or not that is the question

    4th year with the pool, last year I covered with a leaf net, I'll never do that again. I like to have never gotten the net off full of leaves. Year before last I used one of the cheap tarp like covers and the pool was perfect next season. This year I am thinking about buying one of the safe cover but not sure. I'd leave it uncovered but I have to big trees behind it that will fill the pools with leaves and stick and I know I am not going to go out in the cold and clean it out. So is the safe cover a good thing or should I go back with the cheap trap like? What are you using?

    Another question, anyone in Tennessee close their pool? I have never closed mine, just covered and went on. Is there an advantage to closing it? Thanks

    Safety cover all the way. Leaves will just blow away.

    Safety cover. I'm using a loop-loc. Keeps the leaves and junk out of the pool and if someone falls on it, they stay dry.

    My vote would be for the safety cover too.
