After taking my rink down for the season I found moles had chewed through the liner in the shallow end. While water still in it and they created a leak. Does anyone else here of such a thing.

ice storm what to do ?

We had about 5 inches of snow yesterday, i got that off the rink but we had freezing rain and rain. That is still on the rink, about 2inches worth. the tempature will be below freezing the next couple of days. Should i leave it alone and let it freeze then flood over the top or try to scrape of the slush ? The rink now is smooth. what to do ?
