    Another freeze question

    We're having the longest spell of below freezing weather here in southern Indiana that we've had since we've had our pool (10 years). It is winterized, but we don't do air pillows- just a mesh cover. There is about 5 inches of solid ice under the cover. Is this likely to cause any problem, especially since it will probably only keep getting thicker? Thanks, Joy

    Joy, welcome to TFP!!

    I don't think there's much you can do anyway, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    It's a joy to meet you
