Keep Leaves from Becoming a Problem

Keep Leaves from Becoming a Problem

Leaves blown into your pool water can clog your skimmer, introduce algae into your pool water and create an unattractive nuisance for swimmers. But there are steps you can take to keep leaves from becoming a problem.

Frequent Skimming

Regular skimming of your pool’s surface will remove leaves before they have a chance to create problems. If you don’t do this frequently enough you run the risk of developing algae problems, cloudy water, and clogged skimmer baskets.

Empty Skimmer Baskets Regularly

It’s important to empty your skimmer baskets often. Leaves can clog up skimmer baskets and compromise the circulation of your pool water which can cause a range of water chemistry problems and put undo strain on your pool pump.

Install a LeafVac

If all of this sounds like too much hassle, we recommend installing an A&A LeafVac. This product is installed at your equipment instead of on your pool deck, making for an easy and more affordable installation process. The LeafVac uses high water flow and a large basket to effectively remove leaf debris from your pool surface. It’s basket has been specially designed to accommodate a higher capacity of debris without clogging, so you don’t have to empty it as often and you don’t have the added worry of burning out your pool pump. With the LeafVac, leaves are no longer a concern so you can spend more time enjoying your pool and less time maintaining it.
