  1. What do I need to do to empty my Intex pool manually?

    Can you tell me how to empty an above-ground pool without using a pump? A simple garden hose and a syphon can be used to empty an above-ground pool. However, the siphon’s rate of water removal will gradually slow as the pool’s water level drops, making the process much more time-consuming than using a sump pump.


    Intex Recreation Corporation makes above-ground pools of all sizes, from small ones for kids to ones that can fit a whole family. 

  2. How to Get Ready to Drain an Above-Ground Pool ?

    You’ll need to get ready for a few things before you drain your above-ground pool:

    Plan how you will get rid of water. Check with your city about how to get rid of pool water, especially if you are draining your whole pool. Most places won’t let you empty your pool water into storm drains, so you’ll need to empty it directly into the sanitary sewer line outside your home.

    Bring down the chemicals in your pool. No matter where you’re going to dump the water, you need to make sure it’s not full of chemicals first. Stop adding chemicals a few days before you drain the pool, and make sure the water is chlorine-neutral before you drain it. Then, ask your local water authority if there are any other chemical needs. If you want to move things along faster, you could use a chlorine neutralizer.

    Wait for it to be warm and mild. Depending on where you live, you may not be able to drain your pool at certain times. Ask the water authority in your area if there are any rules. But if it’s not clear, you’ll have to wait for a day that isn’t too hot. If you want to keep your pool liner in good shape, try to keep the temperature at or below 85°F (29°C).
    Pumps, filters, heaters, and timers should all be turned off. Pumps and other pool equipment with automatic timers should be turned off before the pool is drained. If the water level drops below the level of the skimmer and the pump turns on, it can get too hot.

    Plan to stay close to your pool while it empties.

    Don’t leave your pool alone when it’s draining or filling up. Depending on the size of your pool and whether you use a pump or a hose, it could take anywhere from 8 to 14 hours to drain. And remember that it will take about the same amount of time to fill it back up. You can use our pool fill time calculator to figure out how long it will take to drain or fill your pool.
