Pool covers today come in a wide range of shapes, colors, and sizes and also serve a variety of functions. Just to give you a few examples, safety pool covers protect against accidental drowning when you’re not using the pool; winter pool covers protect your pool against harsh winter weather; solar pool covers help to heat your pool; and spa covers protect against drowning, harsh weather and hold in heat. Royal Pools and Spas carries all types of covers and is sure to have the right fit for your investment.
Damage to your cover and pool can occur when water is displaced out of the pool and cause stress on the cover. This will also cause potential structural issues to the pool when there is snow and ice load on the cover that is already stressed. In this instance, the cable becomes too taught and the weight of the snow load can crush the top rails and result in other types of damage. Mother nature does not care how well your pool was installed. If there is not adequate water to support the weight of winter precipitation, or if other winter issues are present, then your pool can suffer damage.
If your cover has accumulated snow and ice, remove the cable from the pool so that undue pressure is not placed on the top rails and ledges.
As the weather begins to warm, DO NOT remove any snow from the pool cover! This may cause the ice mass to shift inside the pool and you could rip the liner or pool wall.
Keep in mind that a low water level is not necessarily cause for concern. If there are no structural issues and you cannot see an obvious hole in your liner, water may have been displaced out of the pool.
Fill your pool with water till it is raised 6″ . Monitor the water level. If it holds, continue to fill in 6 inch increments until the water is up to the proper mid-skimmer level.
