Well, as the weather warms up here it north Texas, I feel I can avoid my issue no longer. A couple of months ago we had some windy weather that picked up a tempered glass-top patio table and slammed it into the pool deck. A good bit of the shattered glass then blew into the pool.
Yes, I was very excited about the whole thing.
Here are the options I've come up with after consulting several of the pool servicing companies in the area:
1. Drain the pool, sweep up the glass, refill the pool.
2. Get the majority of the glass out with a leaf net, vacuum til the cows come home, and let the filters pick up the rest.
Any thoughts? I have an inground gunite pool, and have been cautioned against draining it due to the potential to compromise the integrity of the pool walls. Also, I'm a new pool owner (since July 2007) and have no idea how I would go about draining and refilling the pool.
I await your sage advice.
