Forum Title: Need advice. Pros/Cons solid vs. mesh cover...
Newbie looking for cover advice. My pool is small so expense is low on all of these covers. I don't have any trees near the pool or leaf issues. I am leaning towards a mesh cover so that rainwater will refill pool and I would expect that I wouldn't have to deal with pumping water off of the cover. What are the plus and minus factors for mesh vs. solid covers? Recommendations appreciated. Thanks, Dave

I don't have the tree/leaf issue either. So I don't bother with a cover at all. just my opinion

Mesh covers let the pool get noticeably dirtier over the winter and have a higher chance of algae getting started. They do allow rain water into the pool, though that can be a problem if you get too much rain and the water level goes too high. Also, it is possible to pump water from a solid cover back into the pool, if you are concerned about getting as much rain water as possible, which gives you more control. Micro mesh covers minimize nearly all of these issues, as much less light and much less debris get through the micro mesh. Solid covers really need a cover pump or enough attention to get excess water off the cover when needed.
