You should never completely drain an above ground pool. The chemicals in the vinyl liner that allow it to stretch when originally installed do not last. If you drain the water, the liner will shrink and when you refill the pool there is a good chance that instead of stretching back the liner will rip instead. NEVER drain your pool.
you should drain the pool and wash it out with a hose
no all you have to do is use a pump or the drain if the pool has one
No , above ground pools are different in that you can drain them , the reason you cannot drain an in ground pool is because the pool is built to have water pressure , and it is very stressful on the walls , I hope this answered your question :) .
It will be empty. Hope this helps.
It depends on how many gallons the pool holds.
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.
Just enough so that the skimmer is above the water and the pipes to the filter and filter can be drained.
NO water must stay in you pool at all times.
Yes, the pool will not collapse if you remove the water as long as it is not broken.
If there is no drain plug then you can use a sump pump.
