Unless you had the pool installed with a bottom drain there is not a drain on an above ground pool. You'll have to pump the water out using a sump pump or siphon it out using a garden hose. Please note having a bottom drain in any pool does not indicate that it is an actual drain as in house plumbin…g. The word "drain" or "main drain" is used most likely for lack of a better term. The only way to drain any pool is to use a portable pump and pump the water out. k ( Full Answer )
YOU WILL NEED TO CHECK WITH THE MANUFACTURER .SOME ABOVE GROUND POOL OUTER WALLS ARE TREATED WITH AN EXTRA COAT OF PAINT OR TYPE OF PRODUCT TO KEEP WALL FROM RUSTING DUE TO CONTACT WITH SOIL.
Level Own Lawn for Pool . It can be done. We just did it. After clearing all the sod, anddirt away for the depth that you want, you need to take a 4 foot2x4, and tape a level to it. Then you need to slide, and smooth thesand that has been laid. **Note, it is easier to level it once youhave the san…d laid. . Continue to check it in all directions. When leveling, it isalso important to know that where your supports go, (the track andthe wall of the pool) is the most important part that needsleveled. The inner part can be eyed for levelness, and smoothness.You will need to lay your block, and then check with a string levelto make sure that all sides are level one across from theother. . You have to put sand on it and level with a rake. . After sod has been removed and sand has been placed in areaconstruct a square box out of 2x4 boards that are straight make box48" square place 2 more pieces between square equal distance apartplace 2 eye bolts equal distance apart on one end connect cable orchain to riding lawn mower. now starting on the high side to wardslow side drag across until level. Materials needed 3 2X4X8' 2 eyebolts with washers length of cable or chain and of course a ridinglawn mower or something to pull it with ( good luck ) . Here's how I did it: Take 4 metal poles (I used 3/4" electricalconduit about 2' long) and pound them in the ground in a square alittle bit inside the circumference of the pool. Take some stringand tie it off on the first pipe at the height you want the finalgrade of the pool, Then run it around the next pipe and then thethird and forth, but at each, be about an inch or so up the pipe.Then do the diagonals. Then get 4 (or 6) string levels and hangthem in the middle of each string. Pound the 2nd pipe down tillit's level with the first, then the 3rd till it's level with the2nd and the 4th till it's level with the 3rd. Go a little at atime. then check the diagonals. now grade the sand till it's justtouching the strings everywhere. That's as level as you can get it without a transit. . Well, it depends on the pool. If you plan to have it there along time you may want to consider removing or adding soil toimprove the level. If it is a smaller, temporary pool you canprobably get away with using instant paver's or propping up theside that needs it with plywood sheets or something similar. Aspirit level will be able to tell you how level the ground is. . we put a stake in the center of the pool site and cut a 4x4piece of wood and spun it around the stake in circles with a levelon top of it until the dirt was all level . A simple and extremely accurate way to determine if an area islevel. Fill bucket with water. Place the bucket next to the areayou want to level. Put a clear plastic tube in the bucket with aweight on top of it to hold it there. Suck the end of the tube andput the and allow it to siphon until it is full of water with noair bubbles. As soon as all the bubbles are out of the tube pick itup and you will note that the water level in the tube is the sameas the water level in the bucket. No mater where you take the tubethe level will stay the same making a perfect reference point forleveling the pool. In other words the level of the sand shouldalways be the same distance down from the top of the water in thetube. Level Ground is a Must For Above Ground Pools. You shoulddetermine were the pool will be located and always find the lowestlevel in that area and remove dirt to match that level. If youalways dig down to the hard ground before assembling an aboveground pool, you will 99.9% of the time never have to worry aboutsettling or shifting in the wall or legs that support the wall.Always for extra peace of mind put cement blocks under each legbrace. Get ground level, layout your bottom tract and mark eachfooter, then dig out under that marked area making the top of thefooter block level with the rest of the already leveled ground. Ifyou will take the extra time to prepare the base of pool wallsupport, everything else will be a breeze putting together. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nEarwigs are herbavors and generally will not harm pets or humans. They also like to hide in dark or shady places during the day. Their favorite habitat is near damp areas. (sinks,leaky outside faucets, pools) Control them by dampening a newspaper and placing it in a shaded area. A day… or two later, throw out the newspaper along with the bugs. ( Full Answer )
This would probably not be a good idea, the problem would be that after having dug the hole and having successfully assembled the pool, you would have to fill it with water before you back filled around the outside of the pool. The problem lays in the fact that should you ever have to empty the pool… to repair it the sides would want to cave in. Also what is the pool framework made of will it weather the conditions of a constantly damp underground environment? ( Full Answer )
Answer . Yes, if you can build it to hold several hundred cars. The amount of water in small spa or hot tub is probably equal to one car. The real answer is no, you could never build a wooden platform to hold all that weight.
We built a deck on one end, about 10x10x(the height of the pool), with cement pavers under it making a floor for storage underneath it. Then around the pool (15x30) we put double landscaping fabric about 3ft wide, covered it with decorative gravel about 3" thick. Garden edging keeps the grass out, a…nd the gravel in.. We use large potted plants, small potted trees, and other decorative items, setting them in the gravel around the pool. Do not put plants and flowers directly into the ground, the roots can get under your pool and cause damage to the sides of the pool and the liner. ( Full Answer )
Answer . You'll need to see if your county has a code concerning that. We have a pool, but live in the city and our city had a code that was more stringent than the state code.. Keep in mind liability. If someone or something (pet) drowns in your pool and you don't have it secured you could f…ace some serious financial problems. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Not so much the pool or the water but it will plug the filter in no time at all thus reducing the quality of the water and the chlorine levels.
If the pool is partially or fully in the ground make a sand cement mix of 10 to 1 and back fill with it leaving a couple of inches for soil to grow grass on.
Answer . Get the garden hose, run it from the pool to a drain and siphon the water out.
I've heard that the liner needs the water to prevent it from drying out. Also keeps the pool upright with the water weight. Wind can't blow walls down when filled.
If the terrace is strong enough to support the weight I cant see why not.
(1) Because its not plugged in. (2) Because the plug is damaged (3) Because the lead to the motor is damaged. (4) Because the fuse or power relay needs attention. (6) Because the timer has broken down or is incorrectly set (7) Because the motor is broken down.
Yes you can landscape around anything. You could plant a flower bed around the pool, space out the flowers, and add a few garden ornaments - something to do with the beach, or summertime, or swimming - perhaps give it a little nautical or tropical theme. You could add a border around the flower bed,… and fill inside the border and around your flowers or plants with small decorative rocks or even sand, which looks really good. ( Full Answer )

i have an estherr Williams pool 1988 still in good shape with everything new liner new carpet and cover how much can i get for it 27 round with all filter and chemicals linda thanks
Well, there are basically 3 different kinds of filter systems, sand, cartridge, or Dichotomous Earth. DE Filters remove the most particles from a pool and are also the most expensive. Cartridge Filters remove debris well, but sometimes the filters need cleaning and changing. Sand filters are the sim…plest and require only sand to do their job, however they fail to remove the smallest particles. So the answer is what is best for you? I think most people would choose a cartridge system. It is easy. Hook it up. If, after a while, it is not working as well, simply remove the cartridge, soak it and clean it. If it is not cleaning up, order a new filter. ( Full Answer )
Whether or not you are legally required to have a fence is an issue that depends on your local laws and ordinances. You can contact your county or town building department for more insight on your county or town's laws.\n. \nYou may need a fence for liability purposes, though.

Will a fence around the property be enough for a home with a swimming pool or will a separate fence be necessary?
That depends upon the laws in your community. Call the health department in your city for that info.
It depends on the size of the pool and the prevailing conditions. Run it for 3 hours morning and 3 hour's afternoon for starters and see how the water is. if it stays clean and clear reduce it until you have found the balance.

There are three different systems for above ground pool liners. There are beaded liners which click in to a top rail, there are overlap liners which overlap the frame then something clips over the wall and liner to hold it in place, and there are unibead liners which work on either system. Please ch…eck your original users manual that came with your pool. If you have lost it or moved into a house that already had the pool, you can find the information online. Definitely do your research before you buy, because you can find the information to buy the correct liner the first time. ( Full Answer )

Of course you do. Put a little thought into your question. Is it possible that a child or animal might accidently fall into your residential pool and drown? Then put up a fence to prevent that accident. Note that this answer does not refer to where your residence is. Perhaps it's in Ware County… Georgia; perhaps it's not. Put up a fence. ( Full Answer )
Absolutely not! It is not safe to walk on, make snow cones with, or skate on.
Typically just a couple days to maybe a couple of weeks if its already been filled and had chlorine in it. The chlorine will make the vinyl liner dry out and not let it stretch when refilling it... and its very important for it to be able to stretch cause it will bust if it cant. If your looking for… a new liner... expect $600- $1000 for a quality liner and maybe another $600 to have it professionally installed. ( Full Answer )
This fee is regulated by your local governing body, code enforcement division. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce. They will direct you to the proper department of your local City Hall.
Yes. a snake can go about anywhere it has a mind to. They climb trees, go up drain pipes to get on a roof. It surely could climb a step ladder to get into the pool. It more than likely wouldn't want to if chlorine was present.
I assume that you are shopping for a pool and are looking at an above ground. I have had three above ground pools. No nothing was wrong with them. We just keep moving. To answer the question: NO, the uprights are not buried. They are not even dug in to the ground. Make sure you pay a professional to… set it up, it's money well spent. The ground should be leveled, then a stabilizer ring is put down in the shape of your pool. Then the uprights are placed in that ring. The uprights really do nothing more than join the top and bottom rails of the pool and give a little stability to the wall. Enjoy. ( Full Answer )
If the pool is properly grounded and bonded, with ground fault interupt circuit, it is safe. I would not run if a thunder storm is approaching. Of course, they should not be in the pool during a thunderstorm at any rate.
Same as inground pool the pH is lowered hence check the pH and add base (soda ) i.e. you can use baking soda also To make pH normal.
Different cities have different codes, so you'll want to be sure to check with them and see what is required, if anything. Personally, I like the look of wrought iron fencing; and it's good, because kids can't climb over it as easily as they can a chain link fence.
it depends. you can make it as long or wide as yoou want if you have enough space.
It is important to have where nobody can get to the pool without going through a gate.
there are a few possibilities, depending on what kind of filter you have: if you have a: - small filter about 2 feet tall, shaped like a cylinder, it's a CARTRIDGE FILTER and can be cleaned by first closing the suction and return valves, and removing the cartridge, and rinsing with a water hose. … - SAND FILTER(identified by its large rounded shape and a spider valve that has 6 settings). turn all pumps off. turn valve clockwise to "backwash". turn on main pump. wait until the sight glass is clear. turn off pump. turn valve clockwise to "rinse" or "rince". turn on pump for 10 seconds, then turn off again. turn valve clockwise to filter. turn pump on, and you're finished. i've never seen a DE filter on an above-ground pool, so i won't go into those steps.

Yes , it filters out the water taking out any bugs or so while cleaning the water.
Absolutely, just like an in ground pool, leaves, bugs, etc can get into it. A pool cover is just to protect the pool water from those sorts of things.
I hear that rubber mulch is the way to go. Supposedly you don't have to worry about replacing it for at least ten years.
If you mean under the liner yes it protects the liner and makes it more comfortable for the users.
Many insurance companies will require at least a 4 foot locking fence around the pool. Even if the company decides to write they policy, they may exclude liability coverage due to the pool being onthe property. Read you.r policy carefully and shop around.
