Gettin ready to winterize my new to me in ground pool, but I cannot remove the ladder to make room for a cover. The bolts that attach the ladder to the cement are loose. I can pull them out with my fingers. I placed a car floor jack in between the hand rails and using lumber, attempted to lift it straight up. No luck.
I'm about ready to order an oversized cover so I can go up and over the entire ladder. I am in South Carolina and many area pool owners don't bother with a cover. I have a tree line of pine near the pool and it is a magnet for pine needles, thus my only reason for a cover.
Thanks for your suggestions!
