Hi All -
Peeked under my cover here in upstate NY a couple of weeks ago and everything was looking grand.... then the snow melted... and it filled up with water behind my 5 month old liner. a real bummer.
Now my first liner was ruined because this happened, but i actually thought it was caused by the water level getting above the coping...and then leaking down behind. i was wrong....obviously.
So i know I will probably be able to fix it and might end up with some wrinkles...
I want to prevent this if at all possible.
Would digging a french drain around the edge be worth it? I have a wet backyard but i do have some grade around half of my pool that i could funnel water away.. My shallow end is 38" and my deep end is 72", how deep would the trench have to be? Also I'm slightly concerned about what is under my concrete deck....
Sometimes, i want to fill this thing in with dirt.
