I'm getting my pool started way late this year due to getting a fence destroyed by a storm fixed before opening. It's incredibly, incredibly green.
When I fired up the pump, water started flooding up from underground around where the return lines go into the ground. Questions:
- Is it a safe assumption that the break is right where the water is coming up?
- Do I need to blow the lines out before cutting out the broken piece?
- Do I need to drain the pool below the returns or plug the lines before I start working?
Any advice is welcome. Thank you!
