My elderly parents just bought a new home with an inground pool.
- Los Angeles
- Pebbletec finish
- 3' to 7' deep
- Two main drains on the bottom and skimmers on the side
- Attached raised spa that's connected to the pool and creates a small waterfall into the main pool
They don't swim and will never use the pool but they (and I) are concerned they could accidently fall into the deep end.
Can I simply drain off about 2 feet of water from the pool to reduce the deep end and still keep the pool running? I assume the pool will just use the main drain to circulate the water and the skimmers won't be in use?
Would this affect the spa?
I've gotten different responses from different people as to whether or not this is possible.
If I could, I'd just drain the whole pool but I'm told the pool might crack if I do.
