    We are expecting to get several inches of rain from hurricane Sally starting tomorrow. Should I drain some water from my above ground pool or just let it run over?

    Yes thats what my color mine was. Brownish, vacuming and filter on high cleared it up. Water wasn't realy cloudy, it just settled on the bottom. You could see the dirt settled on the bottom but we hadn't started swimming in it yet.
