Because the level on my pool has been dropping, I filled it up this morning. I forgot to set my alarm and I just noticed it after... well a few hours and it's higher than I've ever had it. Not over the deck.
At the deep end, there is a rolled up retractable pool cover - in the early days (before I owned it) it had a working motor that rolled it out along tracks along the side of the pool. It hasn't worked in ages. We took the motor out a long time ago. The water is up high enough that it can pour over the slightly lowered edge of the pool (that allows for the cover to move out and over the water) and into this cavity where the cover is. I'm not sure what the inside of this thing looks like - all spiderwebs and yuckiness..we've never looked.
Have you pool guys seen these before and if so, do you know what kind of cavity houses these retractable covers? Should I worry that the water is going to do some damage back there?
Thanks for a quick response!! :O
