    Emergency Response Needed If Possible - How much snow can safety cover hold?

    Hello folks,

    I'm looking just for general information if possible as I have absolutely no guideline to go by as far as this goes. I'm currently experiencing the snow storm in the northeast and I have a solid vinyl safety cover for a 2040 inground 8 feet deep pool. I'm just curious if anyone can give me an average of how much snow a solid safety cover (By ft or in) can safely hold?

    The water level is currently about 12-18 inches below the top of the pool so I'm concerned about needing to shovel off some accumulation. But if i could avoid it altogether that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Normally a safety cover can with stand a good bit of weight. They can handle a couple of feet of snow.
