I am repairing my pool deck which entails power washing to remove all paint (who knows why it was painted) and loose decking material (concrete texture). There is a lot of material getting in the pool. I currently have everything running, but I am thinking of draining to pool to make it easier to clean and work on (especially the cantilever, where all the decking is coming off). I am concerned that draining the pool (plaster) will cause more problems. There is a lot of deck so this will take a while. I live in Tucson. Any thoughts, ideas, and advice would be appreciated.
