    24" Above Ground Pool Liner Failure-Need Suggestions

    I have enjoyed a great summer using our 24' AG Pool. Been using the Trouble Free method of cleaning and water balance. Also went to a SWC generator two years ago. However I have closed the pool for the winter. Lowered the water level, put pillow in center and covered with winter cover. Everything fine until today. I have lost all my water in the last two days. Just pulled back the cover and found the liner torn/separated 2/3 of the way around the pool and laying in the bottom. All the water is gone. What choices do I have now to fix the problem. It is currently 26 degrees outside. Has anyone else ever run into this problem. Liner is/was 5 years old. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    You will need to support the pool somehow until spring otherwise it has the potential to sail in the wind. Placing fence stakes all around might work.
