The best way to empty a pool is with a portable water pump, they have small pumps that can pass 2280 gallons a hour (small 43cc 2 cycle motor and pump). You can buy one or they have them to rent at hardware stores and tool rental places.


Use the pool's existing pump. Set the spider valve to waste and the suction to pull only from the main drain.
