Fall is right around the corner and I'm already dreading it. We have one oak tree, one pecan, one elm, three crape myrtles and five ornamental pear trees. The squirrels are having a field day with the acorns and pecans at the moment so most of those should be off the trees before the first cold snap. Last fall, before the pool went in I raked and bagged 50 - 30 gallon bags of leaves! My concern is once the leaves start falling I will be out there skimming all day long. The Polaris is running about three hours a day now and since we are in Texas my understanding is we don't need to close and cover the pool. My question is other than cutting down the trees - what's my best course of action to minimize a mess in the pool? Anyone tried the leaf gulper?
