Pool overflow question

Postby Crazy Neighbor » Sat 25 Sep, 2010 17:24

Hello, I don't own a pool but my seriously disturbed neighbor does. We have had torrential rains. He is not living at the house with the pool but it hasn't overflowed (it should have). Does he have an overflow valve and would it be the normal backwash hose (which has had diverted underground to our property) be taking up the overflow?

It's hard to tell if this is a question. Are you asking if he would have an automatic overflow valve, also, you think he has a backwash hose pointed at your property underground? As far as I know the only way to lower the water level is to manually "waste" or "backwash" the system. Also, if he does have a pipe aimed at your property, is it actually physically in your property, or just aimed your way? Only one would give a legal ground for him to cease that operation.
