    Did the water go too low?

    In our effort to avoid a swamp on our cover this year, we drained the snow melt off occasionally. I just noticed that the water level in the pool has been draining a little each time as the cover is a few years old now and holey. I think we're probably 30-40% drained. Did we just ruin the liner?

    Shelley, the liner is most probably OK Draining a little water out of it from the holes in the cover shouldn't be an issue

    Fill that pool and start enjoying it as soon as the weather permits 8)

    Don't I know it! It has mostly snowed and finally this weekend it rained for the past 5 weekends I'm thinking it's going to take 2 weeks to get her open due to my husband's schedule. Alas, patience is a virtue.

    Thanks Ted.

    Shelley what do you mean the water level in the pool has been draining each time? Do you mean the water level of the pool is going down, or the water on top of the cover is going down?

    Beave - My husband has been putting a stone on the cover to make a low spot to put the hose end at. As a result the leaky cover allows pool water to seep thru and we drain pool water with every drain. It's a solid tarp like cover, but it's 4 years old so it it not a waterproof barrier. It kind of snuck up on us because we weren't looking for it to happen.
