We had our AGP already closed up for the off-season and went on vacation. When we got home, one of our dogs* had dug under the deck so far that it punctured the pool liner and the pool was 1/3 drained. So we removed the winter cover and leaf net and there it sits. It was about due for a liner anyway, so it's not a huge deal, but I am wondering what is the best way to leave it until we can replace the liner?
I thought we should keep the leaf net on so all the gunk doesn't build up on the bottom, but my husband thought it could mess up the walls or rails to do that. We have leaves falling all the time so it's not like all the leaves fall and that's it.
edit to add: I'm in FL. Our normal closing is just to shock, add algaecide, and cover. We leave the water level up so we can run it on nights when it may freeze.
* Our neighbor was feeding and checking in on the dogs while we were away. This was never a problem before but we have a new young dog and he obviously got bored.
