Depending on your water costs draining and cleaning is probably your best option considering the neglected state of your pool and just a few more swimming months left this year
Make sure you close properly and have a cover to prevent debris collecting in your pool

My suggestion - Go for a robotic vacuum which is a fantastic tool to help keep your pool clean regularly. It is not cheap but will do a great job in-deed.

Save your money and vacuum it manually, quicker, won't miss bits, nothing to break and no large expenditure which would be better spent on a good cover to avoid the dirt going in.
After of course you get the rubbish out and clean the pool.
