Has your pool water turned green and you are thinking about draining the pool? If so, call us to chemically test your pool water first. You may not have to drain your pool. We will try everything in the book before we suggest draining the pool.
First, you need to look at Why you may need to drain your pool.
Why You Need To Drain Your Pool
The reason that you may need to drain your pool is because the water has been subjected to harsh chemicals and a harsh environment because of hair, dead skin, oils, dust, minerals and other types of biological remains. Over time your pool will collect these materials and phosphates that are so small that your pool filter cannot filter them out. Plus, chlorine isn’t enough to treat the materials, because it only kills bacteria and algae. These materials are food for algae and bacteria. So if your phosphate and organic material levels are high, you may begin to struggle keeping the bacteria and algae under control.
Other Pool Drain Reasons:
Pool draining may be needed for: green pool cleaning, pool tile cleaning and chlorine blasting of the pool walls and surface. Once your levels of materials get too high, your pool water won’t be able to use chlorine to kill the bacteria and algae in your water, which turns your pool walls and surfaces green.
How Often Should I Drain My Pool Water?
Many pool experts do recommend changing the pool water every 3 to 5 years, depending on the type of pool you have such as chlorinated, salt water, mineral water, or saline, etc., how often your pool is maintenanced, and climate of the pool.
Pool water can’t be treated effectively after 3 to 5 years. It will take too much chemicals for your pool as well as money to clean the pool water once the water is over 5 years old.
If you haven’t drained your pool every 5 years, you will have constant issues like cloudy water, algae growth, and a money pit of expensive pool chemicals.
Contaminated pool water can also damage the pool walls and surface. Environmental things like hard water will cause calcium and mineral build up on the tiles which costs money for tile cleaning. Weekly maintenance is much cheaper than cleaning pool tiles.
We specialize in cleaning and draining green pools. The green stains that are left behind after it drains, we can clean those up with our pressure washing services. We also provide tile cleaning for mineral and calcium buildup on tiles.
We will follow the city codes for proper drainage of the pool water. According to AhwatukeeAZ.gov, swimming pool water must be drained onto your property first.

The last option will be to drain your pool water into the sewer clean out which is normally in front of your home.
After the pool has been drained, the pool will be easier to clean and maintain once there is fresh water in it. We will do the following steps to ensure that your pool water is properly drained.
