    Lightweight tarp\cover to keep debris?

    Hello All,

    I'm getting different opinions on the usefulness and how easy\hard a more lightweight cover is to manage for one person. I don't think it would be that difficult to take on or off given my pool is about 20 ft at its widest and 36 ft long, so not that big.

    Does anyone have experience with covers designed specifically to help reduce debris both in functionality and covering\uncovering the pool?

    I don't cover my pool. My neighbor did and I helped him sometimes and it was a lot of work. Even for more than one person. We have lots of trees (100+), we run our pump 24x7 a lot of the time to keep the stuff skimmed and off the bottom and in the skimmer baskets. Our VS pump gets good skimming action at 1100rpm and only draws 150watts.
