My wife and I just had an in-ground, vinyl, steal wall pool installed. Unfortunately I did not do my due diligence ahead of time and had the excavated dirt used as backfill. We would like to wait until next Spring to allow time for the dirt to settle. My concern is leaving the pool uncovered over the winter. I live in update New York and we tend to get a lot of snow. I am not sure if the snow will have an damaging affect on an uncovered pool without a supporting deck as will. We had the pool backfilled this past Saturday and in some areas it has already settled close to a foot. Any insights would be much appreciated.
