If this a newly built pool then have the company that built the pool ~ or the plasterer ~come back out and finish their job of prepping the pool before the start up. Whatever it takes to clear the main drain of the cement is their job and they have shirked their responsibility. If they say they have to drain the pool this then that will be at their expense. There should be no charge for this task and they should also pay for the water to refill the pool. k

Trick question. The pool is empty but the drain is open. With an open drain, the pool will never fill, unless the water entering exceeds the water draining.True,-----------> 20 hours


Drain it, disassemble it and start over with the first step -- levleing the ground.


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.


drain it, chip out around crack repair it with a cement sealer.


They should not be cleaned in the kitchen sink and YES, it will harden in the drain.


No. An older (possibly better) type of Fiberglass pool was constructed in this manner, with a concrete/Gunnite/Marcite trowled bottom and Fiberglass panels at the side of the pool. Panels are caulked together along vertical joints. Actually not a bad deal, but caulked joints must be maintained. Once the concrete starts showing through at the bottom of the pool, its time to drain and resurface. Bottom of pool should be acid washed every 3-5 years to keep it sparkling and remove mold, mildew, stains. If bottom surface is chipping off, its getting close to time to resurface bottom of pool. Bottom is treated just like any concrete/gunite/Marcite pool surface. Sides are simply brushed, caulked in timely manner.


Vacuum the pool. If you have to drain it, only drain it half way. Floating pools are a disaster.


Gunite, cement does not rust.


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


no all you have to do is use a pump or the drain if the pool has one


a deep hole in the group commanly lined with cement, the it is filled with a blue denim substances called jeans* no gene haha silly wiki question


someone told me the pool pops out of the ground but idk if that's true i bet you can drain them


One slang term for a pool is a cement pond.



Dug a hole and filled it with cement. Then when it dried, they filled it with water.


you could drain the pool, but if you don't want to drain your pool, you could get a pool skimmer and get all of the leaches out of your pool and then carry the leaches to a near by sewer, or a murky pond/lake/river.


If its not connected through the skimmer I imagine it's there to empty it. hmmm, on the above. The main drain in pools is for circulating the lower part of the pool and is not intended to drain the pool as in a bath tub.


backflip into the pool of cement


The pool floor drain you are talking about is probably not a drain but a hydrostatic valve which is there to allow water in from underneath your pool if your pool is empty or partially empty and there is an excessive amount of ground water around the bottom of the pool. these will stop the pol from floating in ground water by allowing the ground water into the pool rather then destroying your pool by lifting it out of the ground.


I don't know about your pool I do know however that most pool don't have a way out for the water other then through the static skimmer. and people often mistake the hydrostatic valve at the bottom of the pool as the pool drain


Drain your pool, then scrub the walls and floor with pool cleaner.


A strong cement adhesive must be used, such as Barge Cement.


How often you drain the pool depends on if the pool is indoors or outdoors. If the pool is indoors you may need to drain the pool if the TDS (total dissolved solids) get to high. This usually occurs if the TDS goes over 2000 ppm (parts per million) at that point you will notice the pool is cloudy and you cannot get it to clear up. If you should need to drain any pool you need to be aware of the water table in your area. At the bottom of every concrete pool there should be a hydrostatic relief valve that will allow the water under the pool to come into the pool relieving the pressure of the water under the pool and keep the pool from "floating" out of the ground. Before you drain the pool make sure that you have this valve, you will find it in the main drain in the deep end of the pool. DO NOT DRAIN THE POOL IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS VALVE AS IT CAN LEAD TO THE POOL POOPING OUT OF THE GROUND. If the pool is an outdoor pool when it rains it will be diluting the TDS and unless you have a very dry season or you live in dry area you will not have to drain the pool unless the surface of the pool needs to be cleaned. So draining the pool should be a very rare event.


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.
