Yes, get hold of them. I had issues with my first order. They immediately shipped out another order. Then, the first order showed up. Thankfully, I got to them before the second set left their site. So, it all worked out. The point is though that they acted quickly to get me a new set once we thought it was lost.
It won't do any harm and will certainly help clear out any solids still lingering in the pool. Just be sure to keep any eye on the water level so it doesn't get too low. You will likely fill up your skimmer basket pretty quickly with leaves and other solids.Just to clarify, vacuuming to waste won’t do any harm correct? I was thinking of trying to get as much dead algae and organic matter out of the pool as possible before the SLAM process so that I do not lose my levels AS quickly
i turned it on waste and let it go for an 25 minutes so far. Try to flush out as much water as possible.Looks like you’ll be fine. It would be better if it didn’t go up to the coping, but it looks like you have some room there yet. As for being over the skimmer, it’s still circulating the water if you’re running the pump, just not skimming. If you can easily drain a few inches, I’d do it, but I wouldn’t worry about it tonight. I certainly wouldn’t risk my well being (lightning) over it.
If it’s not actively lightning out draining to waste would be an excellent time to vacuum to waste.i turned it on waste and let it go for an 25 minutes so far. Try to flush out as much water as possible.
