How do I drain my swimming pool?


If you want to drain your pool, you should first allow the pool water to sit long enough to allow the chemicals in the pool water to reduce naturally. Once the pools water has lost most of the chemical content you should drain the water through a vegetated area to allow the water and chemicals to absorb into the ground and not run directly into the City's Storm System. In addition you should take precautions to not allow the water to drain directly onto adjoining land owners property and cause an adverse affect to their property such as flooding, pooling water and erosion.
