I don't want to run into the same problem I did last year. I put a garden hose on the cover, started a siphon, and let it go all night. In the morning a massive amount of water was removed from the pool itself, not just on top of the cover. I assume this is because water can get through the cover (it's a cheap one).
Does anybody have any suggestions for removing the water from the top of the cover with minimal loss of water under the cover?
