Bottom drain leak

Postby Jere Lutz » Tue 06 May, 2008 15:14

My inground pool bottom drain developed a leak last year and as a result I have to use my skimmer for return of water to my filter. Repair of the problem would be too expensive and I am considering installing a temporary flexible line from my pump/filter that would suck water from the deep end of my pool which is 8 ft deep. I propose to only use this when pool is not in use when solar cover is on to assist in better circulation or when brushing the bottom. Do you think this is feasible and do you have any suggestions to use to cover the end of hose in the pool.
