Overflow water level correction

Rookie here, be patient. I need to drain my pool level due to rain. I know how to go to service mode and how to turn pump on; do I turn filter to Backwash, Rinse or Waste just to suck water out and put down the drain it is hooked to?

Welcome to TFP.. A Great resource for all pool owners with flow issues... :wave:

Use your waste setting..

Does your pool not have an overflow pipe in the wall of the pool? Often at the water line with a little grate over it.
