I'm having a panic attack over the 12 inches of water I just drained out of my fiberglass pool!! I have been battling algae for about three weeks now. I finally found the source of my algae returning. It was hiding inside my Fiberstars PAL treo LED light. So I did my best to clean the light (while still under water) . Unfortunately, I took it apart a tad too far & broke the air tight seal under the lens😢 So now I have an algae free pool with a broken light. After googling every video about pool lights & speaking to a rep at the light company I was convinced I could easily pull it out & place it on the deck to dry out. So after I shut off the power at the breaker I unscrewed it from the wall only to find out that my installer did not leave any extra cord behind the wall. So I have a service guy coming out Friday to look at it. He said to go ahead & drain some of the water to expose the light. I opened the main drain & shut off the skimmer & vacuum & opened up the hose to the yard. But now that I have reached the light, it seems REALLY low & I'm freaking out that my pool is going to pop out of the ground while I sleep!!
I really want my light fixed as this is only a two year old pool. But I also can't afford to have it pop out of the ground in the process! Please advise!
