    Rain Rain Go Away

    Quick newbie question: its been raining nonstop for about a week now, and the water in our new pool is more than halfway up the skimmers at this point -- for the first time. Should we aggressively drain it, or just wait and see if evaporation does the trick? Whats the rule of thumb?

    As long as you still have a little gap between the water surface and the top of the skimmer you are fine.
