    back wash hose to drain above groundpool

    I had to drain my pool. There is still a little bit of water left can I use a back wash hose to get the rest of the water out? Garden hose not an option, water level too low

    Welcome to the forum. I don't understand why you think a backwash hose will get it done if a garden hose won't?

    I am new at this I drained my pool with a garden hose there is still water in the bottom but will no longer drain through the hose. How can I get the rest of this water out?

    Next question: Why do you need it TOTALLY drained? What kind of pool is it?

    I use utility pump that hooks to a garden hose, then sop the rest up with towels. I just wring them out over the side, and it gives me a chance to also give the pool a good wipe down before I store it away for the winter.
