We're into the last week of Dec of our first yr being pool owners. I was on my secong cover, looks like now I need a third.
Winds have been shredding our covers. The last one was split in two, litterally.
Question---lost the last cover last week--had no time to replace, now cold weather moved in an froze the pool up. What remains of the split cover is now froze into the pool, along with 2 inner tubes for ice expansion.
Where to go now??? Replace cover--leave it as is, as sure as type this another good storm will certainly destroy another cover.
What do folks in high wind areas do???
Drained pool 3" below skimmer. Water from storms has entered pool. I now have frozen ice line @ maybe 1" below. I have no skimmer protection. Saw someone say put a piece of cut noodle in skimmer as ice expansion material?? Is this good enough??
This pool thing is starting to get old?? Did I do the right thing?? Help???
