    Water Over Skimmer

    I just had my pool installed and filled. This past weekend we had a lot of rain and the waterline is now over my skimmer. Is that OK or should I pump some of the water out? It is really too cold to swim right now, so i won't have any splashed out for a while. Sorry for the newbie question.

    It won't hurt anything, but your skimmer won't be effective at removing surface debris from the water.

    Thanks John. I have a solar cover on it, so that should keep most surface debris off.

    I have to do mine too.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
