Mesh leaf covers are designed to sit above the surface of the pool to catch leaves, sticks, bugs, and anything else that may fall into your pool. Leaf covers are great for pools in heavily wooded areas, and can also be used in the spring and fall to prevent debris from getting into your pool during yard cleanup.
Mesh leaf covers can also be used after you close your pool for the season. Once your winter pool cover is installed, simply install the mesh leaf cover on top. Once the leaves have fallen and the trees are bare, remove the mesh cover along with all the leaves and debris it has accumulated for quick and easy cleanup. This will also help increase the lifespan of your winter cover, as it will not be stressed by the extra weight of leaves and debris.
