    Draining Water

    Morning All--been having torrential rain since last night (just over 6" over night). So woke up this morning with pool about to overflow. Setup the backwash line and pumped out water to middle of skimmer.

    Assuming I'm going to break out the test kit when it stops and check my levels but wanted to know if there's anything else that should be done with this much water replacement in such a short amount of time. Pool is only a few weeks old and was getting to where I wanted. Numbers from yesterday.

    Fc. 5
    Ta. 60
    Ph 7.3 (bought some washing soda yesterday to raise)
    CYA 70-80
    Salt 3600ppm


    Just wanted to check everyone's experience on this forum with draining and next steps. Appreciate the help!

    Most of the time, a heavy rainstorm has less effect on your pool than you might think. Since your numbers looked good going in, I doubt you'll have to tweak them very much.

    I would leave your pH alone. It'll tend to rise on it's own anyway.

    Appreciate that duraleigh. Will leave ph alone and just test when the rain lets up. Still pouring!
