Hey, pool owners.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to drain and clean your swimming pool.
In a previous article, we showed you how to clean a green pool by bringing the chlorine up to shock level and continuously cleaning the filter until all the algae were removed.
In this video we will drain all the water from the pool do a chlorine wash on the walls refill and balance the water chemistry.
Let’s go ahead and get started.
Okay. A couple of things to consider before you drain a pool is you probably don’t want to do it.
if you’ve had a lot of rain ,because the water table could be high.
What that means is if you have a shell of a pool sitting empty and the water table is high underneath it.
It could potentially pop the shell out of the ground.
We’ve seen that happen in Florida from time to time.
Another thing you want to keep in mind is when you’re draining it you want to drain the water far away from the pool.
