Your pool equipment and your automatic pool cleaners will need to continue to run on a scheduled basis to keep the debris out of your swimming pool. With winter comes, wind, rain and falling leaves, broken twigs, bird nest and anything else that is not nailed down can land in your swimming pool. If you do not have an automatic pool sweep, Pentair’s Kreepy Krauly Legend Series (note link to our pool equipment page) can certainly take care of removal of larger debris from the bottom of your pool. If you do not have an automatic pool cleaner, you will need to get out regularly with a larger debris net, and manually remove the leaves and other items from your swimming pool. However, a leaf vacuum, such as a _ _ _ can do the work for you as well. Remember to keep your skimmer baskets and automatic cleaner bags emptied.
