I have an inground pool that overflowed this past winter due to sudden heavy rain. It caused a huge mess and I'd like to be able to prevent that from happening again.
My pool has a "rain drain" (hose bibb) near the filter and pump area, but when I open it up no water comes out. I've tried opening it when the filter is running too, in case that needs to be on in order for it to drain. Still, no water comes out.
I'm a fairly new pool owner and have no idea what the problem is. Seems like it should be pretty simple...you open the drain and water comes out. But it's not working out like that. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your help.
