Pool Cover Water

Postby Waterdog » Sat 29 Apr, 2006 18:24

My above ground pool cover has a large ammount of water on it from over the winter. I tried to pump it out with an electric pump but the water level on the whole pool just keeps on dropping. This is a new cover but looks as though there could be a leak although I can't see any. Should I try to refill the pool through strainer to raise cover, or just keep a pumpin?

Pool cover leak

Sounds like the cover has a leak. Pumping further will only empty the pool even more.

I would fill the pool and remove the cover ASAP. Inspect the cover for damage and have it repaired before using it again.

Thanks for your help! I'll start to fill it today.
