So, one of the pipes on our filter came apart and was spewing water. The water level dropped, and now the liner is all jacked up. The water level didn't seem *that* low, so I don't know if that's why the liner got jacked up, or if something else happened.
I hate, hate, hate this pool with a passion that I cannot even begin to describe. I have no idea what to do next. I guess I have a few questions.
What should I do with the pool right now? Obviously, we turned the pump off. Can I just cover the dang thing with a winter cover for the season and deal with it in the spring? Will that winter cover keep it from freezing and giving me more problems? I'm in So. Oregon, and it can get cold overnight in the winter, but we don't usually have extreme weather, lots of snow, etc. If I have to deal with it now, what exactly should I do?
Second, has anyone ever removed/filled in a pool? Is there a direction you can point me in for that? What do you think is the cost difference between getting a new liner and taking the pool out completely? Best case scenario, I would prefer grass there, but I have to keep cost in mind.
Thank you for any insight you can provide! I am just frustrated as all get out right now.
