Looking to start the process of closing the pool this year as water temps are at 55 degrees, so I figure its going to be soon here.
Anyway, the cover I got last year was too small as I was looking at the wrong guide and its one that sits on top the water and lets water through. In theory it worked well, but since it was so short it bowed and tore slightly.
Looking at my pool, I am wondering if I plug the return opening, could I leave the water level at a place I feel will let the cover sit better. It would still be about a 12 inch overall drop and the return line would be plugged. Last year it didn't rise up much when froze.
is this is possibilty?
