We have had couple of good blasts of snow, followed by some warm weather. I came home today and found that the ratchet tie mechanism had broken and the cord came loose and now the weight of the snow on the cover pulled the cover off the top rail.
I inspected the pool and all is well, no damage what so ever. The cover however can not be pulled back its to heavily weighted down by snow.
my concern is not the cover blowing off as the weight of snow will keep in there. but the outer edge of the cover exposes the pool water.
Not sure what i should do at this point. It seems i am going to have to ride it out and when the snow starts melting I should get my utility pump to drain the water from the cover.
Any suggestions on what else i could do would be greatly appreciated.
