No, turn the filter off so that you do not forget it and drain it past the filter and burn it up.
No. Just don't drain on other people's lawns.
Where is the drain located? If it is on the wall near the top then you can keep the water in the pool. If it is near the bottom then you may have to drain the pool.
You can rent a sump pump and place the hose in the pool and simply turn on pump. Depending how big your pool is, it may take a while. They do have hand pumps but you'll be there awhile and you will get a good workout.
Vacuum the pool. If you have to drain it, only drain it half way. Floating pools are a disaster.
no all you have to do is use a pump or the drain if the pool has one
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 plumbing. 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
someone told me the pool pops out of the ground but idk if that's true i bet you can drain them
