    opening pool

    So, we pulled the cover off the pool today. We have several tasks at hand: fill up the pool and get everything connected so we can run the filter, figure out how to handle the tons of tadpoles and frog eggs, and try to determine if there is a leak in the liner because the water level is quite a bit lower since we closed it.

    What can prevent the tadpoles/frogs/frog eggs from overtaking our pool again?

    Any suggestions on finding leaks in above ground pool liners, when there is no obvious water from the outside? If its small, can it be repaired, or should I look now into a liner replacement?

    Will test the water tomorrow as we work to add more water to get the levels right.

    Is it possible that you had a leak in the cover? That is more likely than a leak in the pool.

    Yes, we think that might be the case, so we are hoping we just pumped out water from the pool when trying to drain it from the top of the cover.

    the pool turned out gorgeous! we didn't find a leak, don't seem to be losing water, and I still LOVE the BBB method. I can't stop talking about how great the pool looks.
