In past years our pool has often overflowed through the skimmer cover hole when we get a lot of rain. I believe this is adversely affecting our lansdscaping due to the high chlorine levels. Any suggestions on how to prevent this?
I can't seem to visualize any way to capture water escaping from the lid (hole), but perhaps a pic or two of your set-up might help. I suspect some sort of water-capturing method down below may be an option to help channel pool water in a way that works best for you and your landscaping. But a photo or two may help.
