Looking for tips on how to get leaves etc off of my new solar cover. My pool is surrounded by oaks and pines on city property next to our property as well as a neighbors ginormous pine west of my pool (which also shades my pool starting at 2:30pm...:sigh: you would think living in the south I'd have a warm pool but due to neighbors shade early in the day it's a struggle. Put on a new 12 mil blue 2 days ago. I normally lose 2-3ppms of chlorine per day and have to add 1 gal bleach per day but I'm happy to report since adding the cover I have only lost 2 Ppms in 2 days which is fantastic........however, after only 2 days we had a bad storm last night and now the solar cover in covered with rain water, leaves and pine needles with some escaping into the pool. I feel like I'm back in the dead of winter faced with cleaning the top and pumping water off the winter cover. Now I'm questioning my purchase. Any suggestions?
