Intex above ground pool questions

Postby jbrawneriii » Sun 02 Jul, 2017 14:02

Currently I have a 10'x30" round in text easy set pool. My yard slopes down so I leveled the area for the pool. My question pertains to drainage. What's the best way to drain the pool up towards the street so the water runs down the street to the sewer?

If you mean that the pool is lower than the street, you will need a sump pump and enough hose to reach the street or if you are backwashing plumb that to the street

I'm sorry that I am not in a position to recommend any sump pumps as I don't have one and i'm in the UK. However they are much the same and should be readily available over there
Although layflat tubing is good for straight runs, it doesn't like bends (coming over the top of the pool) as it flattens. A non collapseable pipe would be best for that, then join it to the layflat
