Hello! My fiance and I live in Texas and have an inground pool. Because we live in Texas, we don't close it and have an automatic pump that runs at a designated speed if the water temperature drops below freezing. So this post isn't about closing our pool rather what to do about the GAZILLION leaves when we go away on vacation for a week during the Fall! Our baskets fill up twice per day since we have overarching trees. I was wondering what y'all do - I've heard mixed reviews about temporary covers due to water collecting in them and then they tear and cause a mess. I bought a net to put over but I worry about squirrels etc getting caught and drowning (who wants to come home to a bunch of dead animals in their pool?!) And we also considered having a neighbor come by and empty our baskets once per day but we would rather not have someone on our property if possible. Just curious what y'all do!!!! Thanks!! PS We have a Polaris pool vacuum that fills up daily as well. I know, we have a lot of leaves!!!
