    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    Lol..It’s mostly my tree , my pool is under it. It shades most of my backyard, which I love, but it does make a huge mess. I’m getting a little obsessive about getting the leaves and twigs out that drop all day. I’ll probably use the cover that came with the pool for the big drop of leaves and...

    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    Thanks for your reply! I guess there is no perfect solution except tree removal which won't happen unless a hurricane takes it down.

    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    Lol,my kids are adults now so it's my job to deal with the leaves. I bought a leaf rake but I'm trying to decide between a leaf net and a solar cover. Is it easy to remove the solar cover without dumping the debris into the pool? I have a 16' AGP and thought I could cut the cover in half or...

    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    LOL... My pool feels cool to me now because it's in the shade and because the air is so hot and humid. I jog in circles to get used to it.

    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    Thanks for the suggestion. The pool did come with built in skimmer that works quite well for the daily dropping of leaves. I used the vacuum that attaches to a hose and I was surprised at how well that works, too. Maybe just using the skimmer, vacuum, and cleaning net will be enough. I did...

    Leaf net or mesh net for very large Oak

    My AGP has been up a few days and so far looks good, thanks to this forum. I knew from the start that my very large, mature, Oak tree will constantly drop leaves, sticks, and pollen. Right now, the leaves aren't too much trouble, but, looking forward I know they will be and I want to be...
