    too much water/rain?

    My water level is at the top of my skimmers because of a lot of rain we've had the last couple of days. Is there a point where I should get concerned? Should I pump to waste?

    If you are expecting more rain you may want to go ahead and drain a couple of inches off. If you liner has a habit of coming loose you want to make sure the water doesn't spill over the top of the pool.

    WHenever it gets to the top of your skimmer you should pump it off unless you have an auto drain. Once it gets close to the top of he skimmer(s) they quit being effiecient.
