Overflow line - need advise
My PB forgot to put the overflow line in at plumbing and I just noticed and brought it to his attention. It was suppose to go on the side of the pool, I guess under the coping. Now they want to put it in the skimmer, as in the back of the skimmer there is a 1" plug that can be drilled out and then a line can be fitted from there. It seems to me that if it was done at plumbing then it would be in a higher position than the skimmer overflow line that they now want to do. If this is done in the skimmer, do most people plug it and either when it rains or they go away for sevral days + do they take the plug off? Any pool builders please comment.
