Pool Discharge

Help keep our waterways clean and aquatic animals healthy by following these three steps to safely drain your swimming pool:

Step 1.  Dechlorinate the water

Let the pool sit for a few days without adding any chlorine.  Or, add de-chlorination tablets, purchased from a pool supply company.

Step 2.  Position drain hose on a grassy area

Make sure it does not flood your house, or your neighbor's house.

Step 3.  Slowly drain the water. 

The ground will absorb it, act as a natural filter and clean the water.
