Because of high CYA (vacation, neighbor taking care of pool, heat and too much rain, not followed BBB method in my absence and instead shocked it over and over with pool store chemicals) I have to drain 50% of my pool...
How in the world do I drain my pool? I'm sorry for the silly question... we did this once (my husband did), 3 years ago, and that is when we switched to the BBB method; but hubs is not home and I want to get this going ASAP so we have a functioning pool for the weekend. The pool has a 'connector' for a hose next to the pump. I plug a normal hose and turn it on and the water flows out, so far so good... my question is, once the water level gets below to the skimmers and there is no water to go into the skimmers and these start suctioning just air, won't that damage everything????????? I do have the drains at the bottom of the pool, will these kick in and shut down the skimmers at the walls (top?)?
