Now is the time to start thinking about getting a leaf net, if you don’t already have one. What is a leaf net? Leaf nets are lightweight covers made of an open weave material that fits over your winter cover or solar cover and helps you avoid accumulations of wet, heavy, saturated leaves and twigs on top of your swimming pool. Leaf nets ensure faster removal of leaves and help prolong the life of your winter or solar cover.
Leaf nets can be used in any season, but they are especially helpful in autumn when leaves are the most problematic for swimming pools. The open weave allows water to pass through the net but will block twigs and other natural debris. Leaf nets make spring pool cover removal much easier and less messy.
