The micro mesh lets the water through, as a result, the leaves blow off with the wind.
I do have a float in the center of it, and the bottles hanging from the cover keep it tight to the pool, and across the top, which helps.
I will post a picture of it this weekend, as by the time I get home at night, it is already getting dark.
My pool has opened to clear water ever since I found TFP. All I end up doing in the spring is vacuuming the little bit that has filtered through the micro mesh.

Thats awesome! I’m leaning towards the micro mesh. How can you tell what the water level is when the cover is on? Did you have to drain lower than people with a solid cover, I assume? I live in an area that has unpredictable snowfall. It’s nothing like northern Ohio where they get a ton but we definitely get snow, just some years more than others.

EDIT: Just noticed you live in Alabama so snow is a non-factor but I’m sure you get quite a bit of rain so same idea. I really just mean any precipitation in general. Thanks in advance! :)

Can anyone recommend a good mesh winter cover? Like the name of it or even a link would be awesome! I don’t know which one to get and I HAVE to close this weekend! Thanks everyone!
