    Ballast/Balance tank over filling

    Hi Guys

    I wonder if anyone can help me.

    I have moved into a villa with an overflow pool. The problem im having is that unless i shut the main drain valve, the balance tankballast tank overfills way past the ball **** auto fill. if i shut the main drain it levels out correctly.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Welcome to TFP!

    Those symptoms suggest that there is a check valve somewhere between the main drain and the ballast tank that is not working correctly.
