I am a Houston pool builder in business for 10 years building custom designed pools. Even with ten years you are always learning and this deep freeze found me in uncharted territory so always looking to learn more.
Welcome to TFP! Crazy stuff right? I've been here several decades and never seen snow remain on the ground more than a few hours, so we're in uncharted territory. But take a peek at the Everything Else sub-forum and you'll see many similar discussions about how we've coached some TFP members through this situation. Stay safe!
