The winter safety cover just taken offf, the water level in the pool is a bit high by about 2-3".
I thought that I need to by a submersible pump to pump some of the water out. I was on the phone with my dad who also has a pool (I have a cartridge filter, he has a sand filter). I was telling him that I needed to remove some water and had to get a pump. He was telling me just to pump it out to waste.
I don't have a dial at my pump like he does that allows me to backwash (don't need to) and pump to waste, etc.
Does this make sense? Are these dials non-existent with cartridge filters? Is my only option to remove water a sub pump?
My pool equipment is controlled from a box at the side of my house. I have to go switch the breakers on/off to turn the pump on and off. I would like to get a timer installed so I don't have to manually shut it off all the time and not have it running 24/7.
The equipment is all hardwired into the electrical box outside. I have a limited amount of knowledge in electrical. The most technical electrical job I have done is a toss up between (a) installing a ceiling fan (b) changing a light bulb
Can you guys suggest a good timer to buy so I can call an electrician to come install it.
