My current AGP is still covered (just a little longer ) so right now the only draining is from the cover after a rain storm. But when I do hook things up, the discharge is going to do the same thing... empty on the lawn.
This is my first year with the pool (and house) so I don't know how big an issue it is. But here is my thought.
Why not dig a whole (maybe 4' deep by 3' wide) fill it mostly with stone, run a pipe to it from the pump area and cover it with dirt. Then when I drain, it will go underground and not make my lawn a water trap.
What are your thoughts?
