You may have noticed that the majority of Bestway pools don’t include a draining feature. Even though this is common with most above ground pools, it does make things a little more challenging for you. Luckily, there are still ways that you can drain your pool with ease.
In this post, we’ll give you some tips on how to drain your Bestway pool using a hose adapter and a few other materials. Draining your Bestway pool isn’t as complicated as it may seem – with the right equipment and setup, you should be able to complete this task in no time at all.
Using a Hose Adapter to Drain an Above Ground Pool
What You’ll Need
There are a few things that you may need to successfully drain your Bestway pool. We’ll go through each one below.
- Hose Adapter: This is used to hook up a hose to your pool’s filter. The hose adapter will then allow you to drain your pool from outside.
- Garden Hose: You’ll need a hose big enough to fit over your pool filter. The garden hose is what you’ll use to siphon out all of the water from your Bestway pool using the hose adapter.
- Shower Drain: If you want to hook your hose up to a shower drain, you’ll need to connect it to your pool as well. You can find shower drains at any pool supply store.
- Sump Pump: Sump pumps are used to pump water away from your home or basement. They are often used in conjunction with a swamp or other wet area of your property. You can hook a sump pump up to your pool’s filter and use it to siphon the water out of the pool.
- Hose Hookups: You’ll need to have a hose hookup or spigot near the filter and/or pump so that you can easily hook your hose up when it’s time to drain the pool.
Using a hose adapter to drain your above ground pool is one of the most common ways to do so. If you’d like to use this method, all you’ll need is a hose adapter and the appropriate size hose.
