Man, I really stink at owning a pool. Just don't have the time the last two summers. For the second year in a row, I'm the owner of a frog pond, that I'd like to try to get a couple of months out of. A broken filter slowed me down but I have a replacement and I'm ready to get started. Today, as I removed the skimmer basket cover, I noticed the liner stretched down during the winter. I've attached a picture that shows what I'm talking about (and about 500 of my closest frog friends). You can see the holes from last year's skimmer basket are about 1" below the holes in the pool wall.
Am I screwed here? Can I pull it up without ripping?
