In respect to this, what happens if pool is too full?
The quick answer is no. You don't need to drain your pool, as there is no risk to your pool by it being full. The only thing you lose with a pool filled to the rim is your skimmer's surface cleaning action. Overall, it still draws water and the equipment is just fine.
Also Know, how does pool overflow work? It's alonside your pool so the water level in both is the same. The water gets too high and it starts to run down the big pipe down to the drain. If you want more control, you can do some plumbing modifications.
Similarly, it is asked, why is my pool pump overflowing?
Pool Overflowing. Is there a manual fill line plumbed into the pool plumbing, usually at the filter pad. If so, the valve to the fill line may have failed open, or partially open, or may not be closing completely. You may hear water running when the filter pump is turned off.
Is it bad if my pool overflows?
If you get more than five inches of rain in an hour, or if your pool wasn't properly designed with sufficient overflows, then your pool may overflow, which can put you at risk of water getting inside of your home and causing serious damage. As your pool fills with water, it may overflow into your yard.
