My circumstances require me to drain my pool, completely. In ground, plaster, 20 years old(as far as I know). I can't afford to repair or maintain a pool at this time, as it needs a complete upgrade.
So, sump pump is in and working. My question is, the current sludge in the pool...is it best to stir it up and hope it gets sucked out, or let it dry(as I am in AZ) and vacuum it out?
Thanks in advance, as every post I've read pertains to the pool being refilled and that is not the situation here. Oh, yes, per city code, no chemicals(i.e. chlorine) can't be added.
