It's been awhile and I've changed homes/pools.
I'm now in Florida with a 4-5-year-old gunite pool. It's been raining a lot and I don't see any way to drop the water level on this pool. Could that be possible? As far as I can see, the lines at the equipment pad are all accounted for and none of them look to be a drain line to get rid of excess water. Everything's manual, no automation.
I've looked inside the skimmer but I don't see anything unusual that might be a drain. The only thing that's different (to me) is there's a vinyl strip that goes all around the pool right underneath the coping but above the waterline tile. The coping looks to be pre-formed concrete sections with Kool-Deck or some such coating.
There's a long drain in the decking, but certainly, we're not supposed to let the pool overflow to that extent!!!
Any ideas where else to look? Do FL builders really build without an overflow line of some type??
Thanks for any help you can pass along.
