Need help with ice probem

Postby Cobrajetken » Sat 23 Feb, 2019 10:56

I have a problem. The evel if my winterized oval oil has risen to the level of the top rail. The pool is covered with a layer of about 4 or 5 inches of ice which is now up against the underside of the metal top rail., I afraid that any additional rain or melting snow will cause the ice to push up and destroy the top rail. But likewise, I’m afraid to drain out any water for fear that the movement of the ice layer will tear the brand new liner. Can anyone offer me any advice on what to do please!! Thanks.?

Wow, I think I would drain about and inch so the ice can thaw and gently move down, then another 1 inch once that has happened unless you have heating you can put on?
Would love to see a picture.
