Pools are beautiful features that you can have around your yard, and you can use them at many times during the year. There is a problem they face, however, and that problem has to do with debris. Pools can become dirty fairly easily, and in the fall, leaves are a common culprit for causing messes in people’s pools. It isn’t uncommon for a swimming pool to have a pile of leaves along the floor, as well as some leaves floating along the top.
You’ll want to deal with these leaves as soon as they pop up in order to keep your pool clean. Here are the methods we recommend for keeping leaves out of your swimming pool.
Use a Leaf Net
Leaf nets are handy tools that you can place on the pool’s top surface. With the help of deck anchors, you can secure leaf nets with ease, making sure they stay where they need to be. With these nets, leaves aren’t able to get into your swimming pool from the start.
Trim Trees That Are Around Your Swimming Pool
If you have trees that are in close proximity to your swimming pool, you should trim them once every 4-5 years during the fall season. When trees are trimmed, it’s harder for their leaves to reach your pool, which significantly reduces how much leaf removal you have to do. Pruners are able to be found at local hardware stores, and they can be fitted with poles that can be as long as 16 feet.
Windbreaks, Such as Fences and Hedges
Fall can be a breezy season, and it’s this wind that helps pluck leaves off of trees. If you have an effective barrier against these winds, such as fences or hedges, it’s harder for leaves to get blown into your swimming pool.
If that wasn’t enough, fences and hedges are also useful at pretty much any time of year, and it’s not just for blocking out wind. You can also use them to create more privacy around your yard, and they can be used as great landscape decorations.
