    Water flooded back in the pool

    Not sure if this is right sub to post in but any ideas on fixing flooding problems around the pool?

    i recently posted about mysterious green pool after fc and levels were perfect. A few days later we got 2" of rain and saw my yard was flooding into the pool

    i am currently in the SLAM process but want to know if anyone has any similar issues and how they fixed?

    i am thinking maybe a french drain around the edges

    You need to find a lower area around the pool and then figure out a way to divert the water away to the lower area.

    I would call a landscape person to see what they come up with. Like Jason said you have have find an area to direct to the water to BUT you want it to be pretty in keeping with your area and pool.

    Could you put in a French drain to the street or other draining area in the rocked corner area to right the side of the pool? Looks like that is the low spot to me.
