Quick backstory -
Bought a house in December with a pool and I know NOTHING about pools. My 18yo dd has a friend who works as a pool boy and he said he could open the pool for me and charge less than his employer does. The end result was that he dumped the leaves off the cover into the shallow end and disappeared.
About a week ago, I realized that disappearance was terminal and started trying to figure out what to do. Kids and I started raking out leaves. Took a sample of nasty brown water to pool store. Got the water level to the right place and started running pump. Found this forum.
Yesterday I found a Dolphin pool robot thingy. Stuck it in the water and it seemed to work. At least it was moving around under the brown stuff. Took it out of the pool last night after dark and left it lying on its side as the instructions said. Today, I went out and looked at it and saw a twig sticking out of the bottom of the thing. Water level is lower than it was yesterday.
Question: Do you think the twig has slashed the vinyl liner?
What do I do now?
