So recently we have gotten a TON of snow and rain. Yesterday the temp got to just about 60 and i had a chance to go out and check out the pool. It seemed like there was over a foot of water on the cover. So i proceeded to drain some of it off. And stupid me forgot about the hose last night. I woke up this morning to a pool with a water level not 2"-3" below the return, but almost a foot below the return.
My solid cover has somehow gotten a hole in it over the past few months and i was draining my pool for about 12 hours. The bad thing is, I even thought about a hole in the cover when i was putting the hose in. I should listen to myself more often....lol
Hopefully the spring rains will help fill it back up so I wont have to fill it much later.
Maybe me posting this will help somebody else to not repeat the same mistake.
