No, you should be fine. I bought this particular cover because it's supposed to be a micromesh cover that lets water through, so come springtime I don't have a mini-swamp on top of my cover. Seriously, last year I rescued about 200 tadpoles from the water on top of my winter cover before I took it off, and then ended up dumping a bunch of Crud in the water when the cover tore while trying to take it off.Candi said:hmmm, I've never removed snow or ice from my winter pool cover, and I am in PA. Should I be doing this?
Does it matter if the cover is weighted down? Doesn't it just sit on the water anyway?
