    IRENE Aftermath

    Yeah...

    IRENE hit and we lost power for more than 24 hours, I'm not sure the exact time that power was restored as we left for the vacation we had scheduled and decided to deal with the aftermath when we returned.

    Well, today we returned. Oh boy. Power is back on but my pool lost a good foot of water and the vinyl liner has pulled off the walls in numerous spots. Oh and she's green (but I know how to fix that).

    I assume I now have a hole in the liner... please help me figure out where without calling a pool service company!

    What do I do first? Fill and balance chemicals? I'm thinking finding/fixing the hole has to be done before worrying about the placement of the liner.

    I may be wrong, but I would look for the hole somewhere around where the water level is now if the hole is in the liner.

    Any advice on what to look for? The water level is about 2" below the return ports so I looked there first to see if I could spot a tear without success.
