    Water Draining During Initial Fill

    Our pool was plastered on Friday and just this morning it reached just to the tile line and the skimmers. As soon as water went into the skimmers, the water started draining out the tube they said was just in case of the pool overfilling. According to my PB, I would think we still need at least another 3" of water. It is Sunday, so I am not sure if I will hear anything back from PB today, but wanted to get thoughts from anyone on here who might know what is happening.

    Never mind, just talked to the PB and the crew forgot to install the PVC floater for the auto fill system. I stuck in a 1" pvc pipe as a temporary fix and that solved my problem.
