Leaf scooping is a common task for pool owners, especially in autumn when the trees shed their foliage. Leaves can clog your skimmer basket, filter and pump, and also make your pool look dirty and uninviting. To keep your pool clean and clear, you need to remove the leaves regularly. There are three tools that can help you with this task: leaf skimmers, leaf rakes and leaf shovels. Each tool has a different shape and size of net that is attached to a pole.
A leaf skimmer has a flat net that is good for skimming leaves from the surface of the water.
A leaf rake has a deep net that can scoop leaves from the bottom of the pool.
A leaf shovel has a wide net that can collect large amounts of leaves from anywhere in the pool.
By using these tools according to their design, you can make leaf scooping easier and faster.
Skimmer Baskets, Your Last Line of Defense
By making sure that your skimmer baskets are in top condition, you're preventing pipe clogs, pump clogs, and other plumbing issues that are caused by Autumn leaves!
Pool Covers and Rollers
Don't want to deal with leaves and other debris during Autumn? With the right pool cover you don't ever have to! Not only do pool covers prevent debris from entering your pool, it also prevents water evaporation so that you'll save pool chemicals and water as well! Pool Rollers on the other hand ensure that you get to use your pool covers. Let's face it, nobody wants to roll and unroll the covers since they're big and bulky. With a proper pool cover roller, you can cover and uncover your pool in a matter of seconds.
