LEAF NET COVERS: BUYER’S GUIDE & FAQ


YOU ASKED
WE ANSWERED

Why should I use a leaf net cover? [open]
Leaf covers do more than catch leaves and keep them out of your pool — which is still great. When placed over a winter cover, they can help keep your cover pump from getting clogged by leaves. They also help protect your cover from potential damage, which can come from falling debris like sticks. [Shop Leaf Net Covers]
Can I leave my leaf net cover all my pool all winter long? [open]
If you live in an area where snow is rare, you can leave your leaf net cover on all season long to catch any remaining leaves. If you live in an area with heavy snowfalls, you want to take your cover off before it starts. Your cover will last longer if you remove it after most of the leaves have fallen.

After the snow is gone, consider putting your leaf cover back on in time to catch the spring blooms falling. [Shop Leaf Net Covers]

LEAF NET COVERS

Whether it’s spring, fall, winter or even the dead of summer, leaves always seem to find their way into the pool. Using a leaf net cover over your winter cover makes dealing with pesky leaves a breeze and prevents them from clogging your cover pump. They are especially good for heavily wooded areas but are beneficial to almost any pool.

Leaf net covers are made of a tight mesh. With holes that are only a ¼” wide, they’re small enough to keep debris from falling through. They also have an overhang of 3’ for round and oval pool and 4’ for rectangular pools to help secure the cover.

While they can be easily used any time of year, they’re most commonly used during the months your pool is closed, placed over a winter cover.

To clear away the leaves, carefully fold your cover up as you take it off. Then you’ll be able to shake them away and clean it off. If it sits smoothly above your pool, dried leaves may blow right off without assistance.
