    In-ground pool cover for catching leaves - solid or mesh?

    Hi,
    I'm looking into getting a pool cover to reduce the amount of leaves that fall into my pool. Should I be thinking of mesh or solid type? And recommended styles or DIY guides?

    Thank you.

    Don't go with the cheap mesh ones on amazon. Had two of them and both ripped. I have a solid winter cover and like it but it would be a pain to install and remove just for leaves.

    Ive tried both and the mesh is a real pain. I now just use my solar cover and blow the leaves to one end. They won't blow off the mesh and eventually drop into the pool.

    Are you looking for something for during the swimming season or during the winter?
