To use a leaf net for your pool just lay the Pool Leaf Net on top of your winter cover before Fall comes and the trees shed their leaves for the winter. The fine meshing on the leaf net will catch the falling leaves and make cleanup simple for you come spring.
You will leave the leaf net on top of your winter pool cover until all of the leaves have finished falling for the year. To remove the leaves, just gently slide the leaf net off of the pool cover with the leaves still on top. Once you are finished, simply let the leaf net dry and store in a cool and dry place until next season. They are very light and easy to use and will save you hours in leaf cleanup.
Just about all the leaf nets on the market are made the same way with the same polycarbonate or polyethylene materials. They come with manufacturer waa=rranties that are prorated during the life of the warranty. Pro-rated means that after the 1st year, you will be given a discount off the MSRP for a the new leaf net cover and the discount will be less for each successive year. How long your pool leaf net lasts will largely depend on the weather, wind, amount of leaves and debris you may have, and how you store the cover between uses. Here in Canada, we are subjected to pretty harsh weather at times so regular maintenance and care will help extend the life of the leaf net.
Swimming Pool Leaf Nets are purchased according to the size of your pool. The cover will be bigger than the dimensions of your pool so you can anchor them with water tubes around the pool for in ground pools, and with water bags or cable/winch for above ground pools.
