I have a small hole in my solid safety pool cover that is allowing the water that sits in the cover to mingle with the pool. It's maybe 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch and "L" shaped. I'm obviously not pumping it out since that would ultimately pump out the pool water. Looking under the cover the other day everything looked fine. I open in 3 weeks....so my question is:
Do I need to worry about the water in the cover that is starting to get algae in it mingling with the pool water, or am I safe as long as no sunlight is hitting the water of the pool?
I figured I would leave everything alone until the opening. My plan is to add bleach immediately once the cover is off (there will be about 24-48 hours from cover removal to pool startup. I will mix the bleach into the pool by hand to the best of my ability.
Then it'll be time to fix the cover.....and go swimming of course.
