Just looked outside in my backyard and this happened.. Yeah cover tore and ripped the aluminum guide rails right out of the concrete.
My thought is it must have a leak or multiple leaks in the liner an/or the bottom drain line is broken underground. It was full when we closed it. I may try and submit this through my insurance. I’d assume pool is partially covered under my policy. I will likely need:
Cover (solar and maybe mesh?)
Concrete Repair since rails are ripped out
Not sure why the previous owners replaced the mesh suspension with this other vinyl cover that glides on rails. Mesh would have likely still supported weight of snow even with water loss.
