Welcome to TFP! Covering the pool will prevent leaf stains and greatly lower the chances of algae getting started. Without a cover, I doubt that there is anything you can do.
OK, that is probably right. Seems doubtful that even with a high level of chlorine it would suppress algae for the entire off season. I am curious why the paint is labeled as 'chlorinated rubberized'. Apparently doesn't kill algae! As to a cover, the original group which built the pool made it a very odd shape..it's pretty..but covering it is so difficult that we gave up. To save heating costs and such we may have to revisit this issue in the future. To cover it this off season I could imagine getting a big roll of plastic film, such as the farmers use to cover large hay stacks for example. It would be a throwaway in the spring, but maybe the cost would be justified. What I hope it would achieve would be to keep the leaves and dirt on top of the plastic. Of course we have to pump the pool down below the plumbing, but retain enough water to keep ground water from trying to float the pool and damaging it. That is worked for 40 years. Any suggestions are appreciated.
