Looking to prevent pool problems? When it comes to pool maintenance most pool owners usually just pay close attention to the pool parts. However, problems can be caused by external factors that aren't even near your pool, like plants (more specifically, trees).
Even though trees are a safe distance from your body of water they can still do damage. A tree has height so falling leaves, branches, and flowers can fall on an angular path—right into your pool. One tree might not be bad, however, 3 or 4 trees can reek havoc with your equipment (like surface skimmers and filters), especially after rainstorms. So, you might want to take a look up before you settle on a ground location.
