Nobody has discussed the displacement issue. By filling up a pool with milk cartons (full enough to sink to the bottom) a lot of water would be pushed out when the jugs are placed in the pool, and will then require additional cold water from the water supply to be introduced to bring the water to the proper level, lowering the temperature even further. ...


Why don't you try draining it now? Its unlikely the entire pool is frozen solid. Depending how thick the ice is, you could cut or auger a hole and drop a submersible pump in to pump the water out (since you probably don't want to operative the pump now). If the ice is thin you could just break it.
