With the threat of storms forecasted, we would like to inform our customers of the following information to avoid the filling and overspill of pool water due to heavy showers. In the event of a large amount of rain, your pool will either drain with an overflow line
automatically or will need to be drained manually. An overflow line is usually within the center of the pool, and in some cases, in the mouth of the skimmer. The overflow line will allow the excess water to drain out of the swimming pool automatically. In the case that you DO NOT have an automatic overflow line, you will need to manually drain the pool. The instructions are as follows
depending on the type of equipment you have: (Note-if you do not have this equipment-please contact us for further instructions).
