Best Answer

Depends on your setup. Do you have a working bottom drain and a side skimmer basket? I only have the side skimmer basket, so once the level goes below the skimmer the pump will run dry. I have to attach a vacuum line to my skimmer basket so that the vacuum head sits at the bottom of the pool then I can backwash as much water out as I want.

You should note that I have read draining all the water from an inground pool will damage the pool as the walls and liner rely on the water pressure to keep shape.

Is it wrong to drain your plaster pool when the temperature is above 100?

Why would you drain your pool just becasue the water is hot? Never drain your inground pool unless you have first cut holes in the bottom of the pool to keep it from floating. If the water table in your area is high enough, your inground pool could "float" out of the ground, effectively ruining your pool.
