Hello everyone! Just closed the pool today and heard of some people using tractor tire inner tubes to float in their pool under their mesh covers. Reason is for the snow weight on tope of the cover to not cause as much issues with the ice buckling onto the sides of the pool liner. I can see for compression as well, but I have had this pool for a number of years and my mesh meyco cover is just fine without doing that. I do try to keep the weight of the snow off the cover in the winter is all, and that way I never have to worry about the snow buildup in weight causing issues with the ice in the pool.
What other ideas do you guys use so maybe I dont have to do any snow removal on the pool cover. I figure I would need to put something under the mesh cover.
I did add an aquador skimmer face plate to the pool this year so that part is good and could allow me to fill my pool up further and when the ice freezes and expands, then shouldnt the mesh cover full of snow be just fine on top of the ice underneath or will it buckle come spring?
Just wanted to see what other people are doing.
Sigh! Hard to cover that pool when it lookes so AWESOME all year long. Best pool season every this year as our climate was much warmer than in the previous 2 years.
