Unhappy Pool about to overflow

8 inches of rain have caused my pool to rise above level. I don't have a manual to operate the Hayward Super Primer pump, self-priming. I am a new homeowner. Please, tell me how to drain off excess water. my pool has turned green with algae!!! I have an inground pool, with vinyl pool liner, 14,000 gallon.

if you look on your multi-port valve on either the top or side of your filter. It will say waste on it, turn pump off and move valve to waste then turn pump on. After returning to regular water level turn pump off and put back to filter. Now add 2-3 lbs shock depending on how green.
