I have an intex metal frame pool and this past month my area has had a bad drought with no significant rain fall so we are now on water restrictions and aren't allowed to fill up swimming pools. My water level has already sank below the return so we now have a fountain lol. I was hoping that it would rain soon to help add water to the pool but it hasn't. The problem now is that the level is so low that I had to remove the skimmer and now the level is almost to the intake line. Does anyone have any advise on how I could keep my pump running if the water level goes below my intake? Like could I run the intake through the main drain plug?
