    10" of rain yesterday, had to keep draing pool

    Here in South Jersy we got hammered yesterday with over 10" of rain. I had to keep letting water out of my pool so it would not over flow and run between my liner and the side of the pool. Did anyone else get hit hard yesterday with that rain?

    I could only wish for that much "soft" water! I doubt we get 10" a year here!

    I got hit hard yesterday and we are getting hit hard again now. I definitely need to drain, but I am not going out in the rain to do it. (I've got a fresh hairdo to maintain....LOL) Hopefully I will get a chance after work today to drain, if it stops raining. If not, I will be out there tomorrow after work wasting more of my 72 degree water.....sheesh. The rain has killed what little temp build up I had, so my swimming season is now pretty much over. I need another 2 week stretch of 90+ degree weather to get back up to 80 degrees.

    Just checked my levels and took a swim, i was suprised that my tempature was 77 degrees i thought it would have been colder. Raked all my mulch back picked up some limbs and then jumped it and it felt great. I did have a slight George Costanza for a second! LOL

    I had to do that during April/May. We received record rainfalls here, and I had to keep draining my IG pool, and adding chemicals on a daily basis.
    Then the summer rolled around and we had a drought. Had to keep adding water to the pool.

    I'm in south jersey too, I drained down after the rain we had last Tuesday so this time I'm above the skimmer but still a few inches from the liner. We get so much sun usually it will burn off but I may drain some tonight since we are going to get more rain over the next few days.

    We got a lot of rain last week and I had to drain some water then. Just got back in from draining some more while it continues to rain. I just do a 'backwash' or it will overflow at the skimmer basket.
    My water temps are down to 74 . I hope we get another warm up.
