Okay, our pool was finished a few weeks ago and I bought the TF100 test kit. I've been reading and learning all I can and I'm figuring all the chemistry out pretty easily. No worries there. And before I get blasted, I know it's fall, and worse than other times of the year. But the last few days, with 98 degree heat and no rain, I've had to clean my skimmer baskets at least 3 times a day, or they get completely clogged. That's not easy while working during the day. And tonight, I was in the middle of using the leaf net and a storm blew in. I was nearly finished, cleaned the skimmer baskets really quick, and ran inside. A 20 minute storm passed, and I went back out. My baskets were completely overflowing, and there were thousands of leaves in the pool. I used the leaf net again, and checked the baskets. Completely full and overflowing again. So, it appears that once the baskets are full, the water circulation slows down (makes sense), and leaves just pile up in the pool instead of moving into the skimmers. Is there anything that can help this, or prevent it, or is that just part of owning a pool? will it hurt if I let this happen, and just use the leaf net and clean the skimmers once a day? How in the **** am I supposed to go anywhere during the fall? Do I need to hire someone to come over and clean the baskets out daily, or just let it get backed up? I'm not complaining. We absolutely LOVE the pool. Just trying to figure everything out and will do whatever needs to be done to take care of things the way they need to be taken care of. Thanks in advance for any advice.
