Pardon if this is not the right forum for this!
So, we had a brutal winter here in Ohio. The snow started in mid-December and didn't melt until last week. At some point in time, the tie downs on our deck broke under the weight of snow and ice and the cover started to fall in. I was unable to get it reattached because of how heavy the ice was. Annnnnd, now that the ice is melting, it has folded under and is submerged.
I ordered a proper cover pump to replace the cheap one I had last year and am going to start clearing water from the top. The lovely brown color is from the leaves that fell on the cover in the fall, and have now made their way into the pool.
My question to you folks is: do you think I will need to drain the pool entirely? I know cleanup is going to be a pain due to the leaves alone, but is the water recoverable with heavy treatment?
Thanks in advance!
