I live in SE PA. We still have a few weeks before we would normally open our pool. Unfortunately the pool cover I bought for the winter was supposed to be for a 30 foot round pool but left very little overhang and even though we had cinched it with a cable and weighted it down with water bottles all around the pool the cover has been pulling to one side - leaving the other side exposed. Today we had strong winds and the cover is now off a quarter of the pool pulling to the other side.
The water is crystal clear but I am seeing some leaves now falling in because of the cover being pulled to one side. Also, we had drained the pool about a foot below the normal water level and the exposed side faces southwest, directly into the sun. Besides debris getting into the pool I am concerned that the exposed liner could be damaged. Should I just pull it off and fill it and start filtering? I probably won't add chlorine until it gets above 60 in the pool. We could still get a few days close to freezing in the morning. None forecast but I do not want any filter problems. I am very happy with the BBB method. Last year we had a green mess with regular chlorine pucks and this year, if it were warm enough it would be ready to jump right in.
