We had some very strange weather here in Maine this year...... Long story short warm cold warm cold warm cold lots of snow, warm then immediately cold.
Wife sent me a picture yesterday with the center of the pool cover near the bottom.... which was about where my heart was.
Called my pool guy, cut the line around my pool for the pool cover. We are now at the mercy of the weather until spring thaw. My best guess is with this last "thaw" we had a few inches of water between the pool wall/floor and the ice mass in the pool... the weight was too much, displaced the water that was acting as a barrier and a sharp piece of ice punctured the liner in the area near where the water was coming out of. Im going to contact the liner company to attempt a warranty coverage ( doubt that will work ) more than likely:
300$ for liner
50-100$ for small pool floor repair ( sand, possibly have pool guy come check rest of pool )
150-300$ in water
All of this assuming after the thaw a stiff breeze doesnt come around and blow my pool in. YAY!
There is almost 2 ft of ice at the top and 6 at the bottom all the way around the pool on the inside under the cover, what you see below is just stuff that was ontop of the cover.
