Should you drain your pool in heavy rain?

It is generally not recommended to drain a pool during heavy rain, as it can put added stress on the pool structure and surrounding area. Draining a pool during heavy rain can also increase the risk of ground shifting and settling, which can cause damage to the pool and surrounding decking. Instead, it’s better to wait until the rain has stopped and the ground has had time to dry out before draining the pool. Additionally, if you have a pool cover, it’s important to keep it on during heavy rains to reduce the amount of debris that enters the pool.
