It depends on if you mean damage to the liner, the bottom or the walls. The liners go bad and shrink if not kept wet and evidentally this can happen very quickly. The walls should be held in place with braces and a concrete footer if it was installed properly and the weight of the concrete apron (sidewalk around pool should keep walls in place so these should normally be safe. The pool bottom if it is not too old is probably a mix of vermiculite adn cement from 2-4inches thick and this can be damaged if your water table is high in your area. If this is true them hopefully who ever installed pool should have put in a sump or french drains ect..to help keep water from coming up under pool and pushing the bottom up. You have to remember that at some point your pool didnt have water in it. ie during construction.
Vacuum the pool. If you have to drain it, only drain it half way. Floating pools are a disaster.
You don't drain an inground swimming pool, unless you are trained to do so. Doing it alone or even with assistance is extremely dangerous. Save yourself some trouble and go contact a local and trained swimming pool cleaning service.
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.
sounds like there is ground water getting in there somehow
To remove excess rain water in an inground pool, you likely want to get a filter. You can also install a drain at the very bottom of the pool, but this will need to be closed if there were water in the pool for swimming.
another clog, further down the drain pipe. You need a drain snake.
The skimmer is the healthiest method for removing water from a pool for filtration at all times
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.
Nope. Sorry, but the only way is to drain the oil, find the reason for the water in the oil,repair the problem and check for bearing damage.
is it a liner or concrete?...if it's a liners DON'T drain it any more then about 6 in. in the shallow end the liner will shrink...if concrete.....it should be fine as long as you don't have a high water table close to the pool.good luck
No. You just drain out enough water to close up the skimmers/plumbing, but the pool remains mostly full.
It's a floor drain without a strainer that you can run other drain lines to, such as the drain line from a freezer in a supermarket.
I need to drain my inground swimming pool I have never done this I know that I use a hose but I don't know where to place it and how get the water flowing my pool has been very neglected newly divorced and need help please. Or can I just treat the existing water with chemicals and always cleaning my filters clean. Thank You very much in helping me if someone can.
Yes. Both caustic and acid based drain cleaners can do damage to your metal pipes. Instead, you can try an all natural remedy of pouring baking soda down the drain followed by vinegar.
Well, it could if ~ You install next to a foundation and you develop a leak in the pool. The extra water being splashed from the pool into the ground may also be causing a problem. It may pay to put an agg drain between the pool and the cellar to handle the excess water
When it's really hot outside, the heat can case the battery case to swell. The heat can also drain the battery causing it to go dead, and can cause permanent damage.
Your answer depends on who owns the driveway, and who damaged the drain. Best practices dictate that you file a police report and contact your insurance carrier, who can sort out who pays for the repair of the damage.
It is not recommended to use bleach or drain cleaner in garbage disposals. the chemicals can cause corrosion and can splash up, causing damage to counter areas and nearby persons. It is best to follow your disposal's instructions for cleaning and remove and clear the j-trap of the sink instead.
For Draining a pool, I use my pump that I use during the winter to pump off the cover. I start it out on the first step of the inground pool and move it down accordingly.
If the defect is causing a parasitic drain, yes.
Not recommended. If the fiberglass pool floats, it will do considerable damage.
You should install a small pump 1/6 horse lets say, let it run.
