Many people believe that by draining their swimming pool it will not overflow and then cause flooding in their yard. THIS IS INCORRECT! In-Ground Pools are very vulnerable to the excess water that the ground may be holding causing your pool to "float" or "pop" out of the ground. When water is in your pool the weight of the water helps to keep the excess ground water away from your pool.
Pool screens are designed to allow us to enjoy Florida life to its best. You may have noticed some love bugs floating about. They are a little earlier than normal so leaving a pool screen torn or damaged is NOT a good idea. Cleaning up those bugs off your pool deck AND off the pool is no fun and can be quite costly.
