Hello to all,
If you have seen the news w flooding in Texas, Houston took 4-5" on the low side, 10-12" on the high; we got 9.5"
I could never go to sleep, so I periodically turned on the outside light and looked at the pool to see if it was overflowing. Since I always saw the bull-nose on the coping, I would say it did not overflow, but w 9+ inches of rain, a lot of rain water mixed w pool water and flowed out the drain.
The pool is chorine-based and is about 15Kgal w Spa. 3.5-4.5 & 5.5' deep and daily temps are low 70's to mid-80's, pool water is 79-80 degrees. The water is not crystal clear like usual, and has a tint of opaqueness to it. There is not a lot of debris in the pool except a few pieces of mulch and a few earthworms. The skimmers have hardly had anything inside them.
I have been running the pump since 7am and the Robotic QC Shark for the last 4 hrs and it looks like it has cleared a bit, but that could have been bc there was no sun early am.
So, what are the usual results of a lot of rain-water and what impact do they have on pool chemistries / water clarity? If you have any other questions, pls let me know?
Thank you very much,
