    Intex drain plug for hose homemade replacement options?

    Trying to drain an Intex AGP with the single drain plug that it came with, but wondering if anyone has any luck fashioning a homemade drain plug for an additional hose to double the draining speed on a pool with two drain holes.

    Meh... I never drain with that garden hose size fitting (I assume Intex pools have something similar). Much quicker drain speed by siphoning over the edge with a pool vacuum hose (larger diameter means higher flow rate).

    I don't believe there is any good reason to risk making an additional hole low down on the pool for draining purposes.
