Basic Plunbing

Postby vtxer02 » Mon 24 Jul, 2006 13:12

Help, just bought a house with 20X42 foot in ground, with I guess all the regular equipment. THe pool is nice and clear wiht just a touch of colorine smell, (it has a clorinator system). Everything is fine, except I don't know what to do with all these valves and swithes ect. has rained 8 inches in the last 2 days and the pool is now way too full.
I don't know how to lower the level in the pool ect ect.
Any help would be appreciated, before I have to go to the local pool supply house for expensive help.
Thanks, Jimmy :roll:

turn all equipment off, turn multiport to waster, turn back on and make sure the water is going out discharge pipe and it will lower the pool level as it goes.

Is that the big valve on the sand filter piping?
