I have the net across the pool now. Once the leaves fall, I’ll blow them off, drain down and cover with a tarp. I don’t bother buying winter covers. It’s all just tarp anyway. I’ve ripped enough fancy ones to know In the spring I plan to move my pump 60-70 feet to the garage area. Then I can fill in the back side. Or deck it. I don’t know. It’s been like this for six years so I’m in no hurry to fix it I guess. The water of still in the low 70’s.
