From the Pool truck: Drain pool water to avoid it overflowing
Today’s pool is located in North Shore off of Moss Park Rd in Orlando.
We’ve been getting flooded (pun intended) with calls about pool water levels after all the rain we’ve seen lately.
First, pools and pool decks are designed to handle the pool overflowing. The water “should” flow off the deck in a way that would avoid going into your home.
If you don’t trust your deck, you’re in luck. Most pools have a very simple way to drain water, and it’s often overlooked.
If you’re worried about the water level in your pool, head out to your pump and look for a spigot. Most pools have spigots plumbed into the pipes, and all you need to do is attach a garden hose to it, make sure the pool is on, and turn on the spigot.
It takes some time for the water to go down, but it WILL go down – just make sure you don’t forget to turn it off.
As always, if you have any questions, ask us in the comments or give us a call.
