I did a quick search but with the words drain and pool it is a bit hard to find the specific answers.
I am draining my pool (35,000 gallon concrete).
We did not hit water when we had the pool built. There are 2 plugs in the deep end. I have heard about pool float.
At what point do I have to get to the plugs. How do I get them out? They look flat and smooth against the bottom of the pool. Is it easy to get them out and back in?
If I take them out while there is still water in the pool how do I know if water is coming in or not? If there is water coming in can I not full drain it? Do I just put the plugs back in and fill it up?
Also I put the DE filter on waste to drain it. Is this ok? I searched around and it seemed like people rented a pump from Home Depot to drain their pool. Is it bad to just use the filter?
