Draining Water From a Pool


How Do I Drain Water From the Pool?

If you have a filter with a backwash valve it is simple.

  1. Turn the valve handle to “waste” until the required level is reached.
  2. Do not move the handle while the filtration is running. Turn the power off before moving the handle, and back on after, or you will damage the backwash valve gasket causing it to leak.

If you have a cartridge filter then water can be siphoned out with your garden or vacuum hose.
