    Wind Damage....no more pool

    Here is what 50 to 60 MPH winds can do to my above ground swimming pool. Insurance adjuster is coming tomorrow. Click image for larger version.

    Hopefully insurance will help replace the pool. We had the kids trampoline about 15 feet up in a tree this year, and the swing set toppled over for the third time in 5 years. Both the swing set and trampoline were staked into the ground with 3 foot lengths of rebar, 6 on the swing set, 4 on the trampoline. The wind still ripped them out. I was able to save the trampoline with a couple of welds, the swing set had to be rebuilt. I never called the insurance company...

    Been pretty windy here as well. I was out in the yard earlier and heard some really good cracks coming out of some of the trees. I expect to have some carnage when I wake up tomorrow.

    Our horse shelter got up-ended in the august storm. The replacement is held down with nine 6" posts that are driven 5' into the ground. I'm guessing the tin will all peel off long before this one gets up ended. I hope.

    Wow! Yup!, the insurance will pay out for the damages..... Hang on to your wallet, guessing they will raise your premiums beyond normal or outright drop you. Keep us posted.

    Depends on the company. We have had GA Farm Bureau for the last 10 years and our claims have literally been more than we paid in premiums. I guess we are still a good risk as our premiums are about the same.

    Wow. What a shame! I hope the insurance company takes care of you. Our above ground pool fell victim to the extremely cold winter we had last year. The ice in it shifted and tore the liner. I ended up with 15,000 gallons of water frozen 6 inches thick in the barn, can we say "instant skating rink?!!!??? Insurance wouldn't touch any of it. Luckily we had no damage in the barn or to the pool structure. I would think with the wind damage, er destruction, you have a better shot. We kind of lost confidence in that old insurance adage of covering things that are an act of God. For us, apparently it was all up to Mother Nature. But after 15 patches in the liner and $600 worth of water truck water, we were back up and running. Hoping for the best for you!

    I need to call Farm Bureau. We have State Farm and get a "no claim discount". That's messed up. If we make a claim, they don't raise our rates, we would just lose our discount. Our agent is terrible too, but that another story all together.
