I was reading another similar post about high CYA and the OP posted a pic that showed water well below the skimmers though the pump was running.
Is that safe to do or should I turn the pool pump off and drop in a sump pump?
My post on that thread:
"Curious.... I see your water level well below your skimmers and the pump is obviously on since water is pouring out of the return jets.
Is that okay to do? I'd really like to know because all I've read is to not let the water level below the skimmers.
I'm a newbie to pools too; well I've got 2 months under my belt. I'm in the same boat as you were with high CYA and the need to drain my pool. I'd love to do what you did but I'm afraid I'll burn my pump up if it runs when the water level drops below the skimmer. I've been thinking about using a sump pump while the pool pump is off and then refilling.
Just curious as I said, your pic caught my eye and prompted my post..."
Thanks for any helpful info!
