Last night we got 2" of rain on top of all the rain we've received this spring/summer. I expected to see the water almost to the rim because it's been pretty full. Oh yea, there's a skimmer and it can only go as high as that. Do I need to drain my pool down some? They are predicting more rain for the weekend.
If I do need to drain it, is there a way I can vacuum while draining? I've got some fine silt on the bottom that no matter how much I vacuum I cannot seem to get rid of. I was thinking if the vacuumed water got dumped, it might help with the silt. I don't believe it's algae because the chlorine numbers only change when there is sun and the pool is uncovered for the day and we add more water because of rain.
