How Do You Drain a Pool for Resurfacing?

To drain a pool for resurfacing, you can follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the pool pump and all equipment connected to the pool.

  2. Locate the drain plug on the pool pump and remove it. This will allow water to drain out of the pump and into the pool.

  3. Attach a pool vacuum hose to the pool pump and place the other end of the hose outside of the pool area.

  4. Turn on the pool pump and use the vacuum to remove as much water from the pool as possible.

  5. Once the water level is low enough, you can use a submersible pump to remove the remaining water from the pool. Place the pump in the deepest part of the pool and run a hose from the pump to an appropriate drainage area.

  6. Once all the water has been drained from the pool, you can proceed with the resurfacing process.

It’s important to note that draining a pool can be a complex and potentially dangerous process, so it’s recommended that you consult with a professional pool service company to ensure that the process is done safely and correctly. Visit our Home page for more information.
