Not sure if this is the right forum, but I'm assuming it would involve equipment, so here goes...
We live in Canada, giving us about 3 months of swimming in a pool that might hit 80 (which is actually fine with me, I like it cold!) We have in inground vinyl liner pool.
Anyone ever convert their pool to a skating rink for the winter months? I'm trying to figure out a safe way to do it. I'd need something to protect the exposed liner from skates, and then would need to figure out a way to get a layer of ice while still covering the pool. For protecting the liner, I could make up boards for around the pool, or maybe sand bags.
