    Cover pump draining pool?

    I think my cover pump is sucking water out of my pool. I have a solid vinyl cover but suspect water is seeping up through it an the pump is draining it off. I added some water yesterday and moved the pump up higher on the cover to see what diff that makes. How do I fix this situation?

    Is it a waterbag cover, automatic cover or safety cover?

    This is a cover logix hard cover that keeps water from going into pool.

    It's probably too loose. Do you have a picture?

    The cover should be snug but not super tight.

    The automatic cover pump should keep the cover pumped off enough so that the cover just barely touches the water most of the time.

    I put water in it this past weekend and relocated the pump a little and so far it appears the level is the same. I also moved my drain hose to a little bit higher ground as the end of it was down a hill about as low as the bottom of the pool. Now the end it about 2 feet below the normal level of the pool.
