    Those AG pools are tough

    Pool draining method

    I found this pretty impressive. I don't think I've seen this method recommended here.
    15x30 IGP; 20,000 gallons; plaster
    Hayward SP2607X10 Pump; Purex Triton Tagelus Sand Filter
    Hayward Goldline T-Cell 15 SWG; Aquarite G1 Control
    Southwest Spas 400 gallon hot tub w/ozone
    TF 100 with speed stir

    I agree, no details on velocity, speed, distance, or height of ramp. BBB method does not have the details but I am sure they have some other method that would work better. LOL

    ProSeries Above Ground 20x4 Sand filter 1 hp

    I thought it might be in the Winterizing section of pool school, but couldn't find it.

    you know.. I have been giving that very idea some thought.. minus the ramp though.. F150 right into the side, maybe back it into the side hard with the slider from the hitch hitting first......slider would just rip through the aluminum nicely....
    24' abg approx 48" deep. Sand filter(unknown brand) possibly hayward pump..details to be corrected later..Sunsetter hot tub approx 7'x7'x40"
