Best Answer

After having heavy rains for two days, my in ground pool only lacked about a half an inch from coming over the top, I don't think it would have flooded my house but I didn't want to take that chance, so for $350.00 I had an overflow drain installed that runs out to the ally. This also eliminated me hooking up my garden hose to the pump and manually removing water.

Additional answer would be that your pool deck should have deck drains build in. That in combination to the overflow should be adequate in some or most areas if they are kept clean and are cleared regularly. Places with high rainfall may want to have a portable pump to remove excess water. Sometimes a sand filter can to that task.
