Ok we have our pool cover on with a pillow in the middle. The wind seems to blow here a lot and the cover is lifting. I drained the pool down below the lowest outlet. Which means it's about 1 and a half foot down from top. I'm wondering if I take a few gallon milk jugs and fill with water, tie through grommets on cover and set on ground if that might hold it! We leave in Jan. and gone till April so a little worried we might come home and find no cover and the pool walls pulled in! I worry that to much water or snow build up on cover while we are gone might also cause damage. I know I worry to much or so my hubby says! I had thought about just not covering since we will be gone. Any tips or such on anything else I might do to keep all safe while we are gone. Missouri winters can be very cold and snowy.
Again we just bought this house so is our first year closing the pool. Just hope we get to swim in it next summer! Pool info below.
