On the advice of my PB, we choose to leave the pool open all year. Although we are not heating or swimming, it is nice to hear the waterfall running and be able to look at the pool.
When I got home from work yesterday, I noticed a bunch of leaves in the pool settled along the steps. The skimmer basket was nearly empty and all seemed to be floating in the in the area of the steps. The water was several inches high due to 4" on rain in two days.
When I backwashed to drop the pool level, everything seemed okay. I'm just concerned as to why the leaves collected at the steps and not in the skimmer. Any thoughts.
