Water Level –Maintain a Proper Water Level – Protect your tile, coping, and pool cover
We strongly recommend you pump out excess water before a winter freeze to prevent freeze damage to your tile & coping. Your water level should be down approx. 12″ from the tile but no more than 18″ below the top of your pool before a hard freeze. Heavy snow weight can displace your pool water under your cover, and this allows ice to form and potentially cause damage to your tile and coping. Ice damage is not covered under warranty. Water level should not be below 18″ from the top of the pool in order to avoid ice or snow damage to your Loop Loc pool cover. Ice or snow damage is not covered under warranty. If you would like to purchase a pump to lower your water level please let us know to have it delivered.
