Keep your pool cover clean in winter
If your pool opens in the spring, it may look like the black lagoon. There is a better way than to allow this and then throw a ton of chemicals into the water just to clear it up.
During the winter, use a pool cover pump to remove the water from the top of your cover. Each time it rains or the snow melts, maintain your pool and remove the water from the cover.
If the cover is dry, use a broom and remove as many leaves and debris as possible from the top of the cover.
In the spring you will thank for having a clean blanket. It’s much easier to remove and you can reuse your cover for the next winter. Nobody wants to buy a new pool cover every year. It can be very expensive.
