I just moved into a house that is in short sale(in the crazy bad las Vegas market) that was seriously neglected for who knows how long. I desperately need to drain the INSANELY DISGUSTING swamp that used to be a pool before it gets warm enough for mosquitoes to go nuts in a few days!!
Our controller is an AquaLink RS with a One Touch pad inside. Don't know if this matters; but there are 3 STA-RITE pumps(pool, spa, fountain) and 2 STA-RITE Filters.
Is there a way to drain the pool with the controller? Please see the gross pics - the backyard looks like Chernobyl! Is that the drain nozzle hanging off the left side of the filter?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and will surely save our street from impending West Lake Mead Disease!
FOLLOW UP: I want to thanks everyone for your replies. I should mention though that we have no desire to restore or maintain the pool because we don't know how long we'll be here... and we don't own the place.
