Yes, I drain when it's a bit cooler and use a sump pump from Home Depot. I'll probably tackle this next weekend and start looking for pool startup info in the meantime.With that data a full drain/exchange is needed. This time of year you can drain using a high power sump pump and refill.
I would suggest getting a SWCG and ditching the pucks. Your pool will be far more pleasant to swim in.
I'll have to look into an SWGC. I've never been too keen on the pucks in the floater, so maybe it's time for a change.
Thanks again for all of the help everyone!
