Ok, so with my new business I am closing pools, most have been easy to get water below the returns, one had main drain plumbed to skimmer and then some idiot glued a plug in there, so I had to get inventive to get water lower then skimmer.

9 pools are now covered with their own winterizing tarps. These will have a lot of water on the top that will have to be drained off before removal. I have more to do and like to plan stuff out.

I am thinking on getting a Honda water pump and 2" water hose but wanted to see if there was a better cheaper way?
