I bought a different net online last year with very large weave to allow snakes to safely pass around and through the net. I can't stand the though of snakes being harmed by a net. However, the weave is too large and lets in plenty of leaves, too. The snakes get around just fine.

According to the manufacturer, the net shown in the attached file can be placed over the existing net already on the pond and removed once all the leaves are down.

It's cheaper to buy a new net in the short term but I don't know what size weave. The snakes are garter snakes and rat snakes I think. The vendor says the net in the photo will last a very long time, but it's pretty expensive for our sized pond, which is 12 feet long, 7 feet wide, if I remember correctly.

I am so frustrated with this pond. It's a money pit. Pretty when it's working nicely, but it's a money pit.

I just let the leaves go in and net them out,the only pond I ever covered with a net was my little 150 gallon. Your ponds a money pit?! Besides electric and fish food I don't think I spent more then 20 bucks on my pond this year.

I have my pump in a skimmer with plenty of prefilter and inside a mesh bag. I'm usually done removing leaves this time of the year and don't have to worry about it through winter.

I have that net for one of my ponds. I ordered the 10x10 as that was the exact size of the pond. It worked great the first year although it is hard to see the fish. The second year it would not fit. It shrunk by almost 6" in both directions.
