    Help with Leaf Net!

    Well...I put the leaf net on my 24' AGP. However, the whole thing is laying in the water...is this normal? All the leaves will just fall in the water and rot....it would be awesome if it were tight across pool so that it does not touch water. Can someone shed some light on this? Should it be tight and above the water? Thanks.

    Re: Help with Leaf Net!

    You can work it 2 ways:

    #1 is let it sit on the cover until all the leaves fall and then remove the soaked leaves. (it's easier if you leave one end secured and pull the net off to that end)

    #2 You can use whatever wights to keep the net taught, so it doesn't fill with wet leaves and use a leaf blower to clear it.

    I've seen folks do it both ways and it seems to work
