    How do I drain the pool?

    This seems like a dumb question, but I am closing my pool today. It has been at shock level for 24 hours and is a vacuumed and now it is time to drain 6" below the water return. How exactly do I do that?

    drop your vacuum hose with vacuum head in the water...submerge the rest of the hose under water, cap the other end with your hand and pull it over the side...presto siphon
