We recently bought a house and the pool is in good shape.
We made sure the pool was topped off before we went on vacation and came back to what was certainly the same amount of water, perhaps more (this is impossible after a week in direct Texas sunlight in August ....)
We noticed the water level was way too high though and staying very steady. We siphoned some water out so the skimmers would once again be able to work, but the next day it was filled again.
It's become obvious we have an autofill valve (....or something) somewhere that's maintaining our water level. It desperately needs to be adjusted before we end up with foundation problems, but we can't find it. There is nothing along the edges of the pool, in the skimmer, or on the skimmer flaps that keep debris from floating back into the pool.
Could it be somewhere in the pool equipment? I'm not sure where to look or what I'm looking for ....
Thanks so much for your help in advance!!
