What Is The Ideal Pool Water Level


From SwimmingPool.com

This may seem like a very obvious, and silly question to some:  What is the ideal swimming pool operating water level?  Why is this important?  Well, the operating level of a swimming pool can determine how clean the pool is, and when not at its proper level, can destroy the pool pumps.  If you aren’t clear as to what the proper level is, then you will need to understand the content in this post from Swimmingpool.com.  Monitoring the water level of a swimming pool is an essential and simple way to ensure safe and clean operation of the pool.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

The level at which the swimming pool skimmers operate best is between one third and one half the way up the opening of the pool skimmer.

If the level is higher, the water moving into the skimmer is going so slow that debris may pass by the opening without being pulled in. If the pool water is so high that it covers the skimmer opening, floating debris can’t get in.
