Hot. Put too much chlorine in ours and after hours of playing chemical voodoo, I’ve given up and will drain it and start again.

If you put too much chlorine in, just leave it and it will dissipate over time. It doesn't usually take too long either.

Cheers. Tried that but at 10x chlorine, it’s taken days.
used the 20g tablets and followed instructions (“fill the hopper”) but it meant with smaller tabs or granules, not those bad boys.

You’ll get the hang of it
Waste of money if your pool is above the level of where you're draining it to, which most inflatable/temporary ones will be.

Just submerge an entire hose in the pool/hot tub and move it around, angling both ends upwards whilst still submerged to get all the air out.

Then place your thumb over one end of the hose whilst the hose is still submerged, removed that end from the pool and put it into the drain. Release your thumb and the water will start to flow/pool will start to empty due to the fact that water will always find its own level.

All you then have to do is ensure the other end of the hose remains at the lowest part of the pool and the pool will effectively drain itself.
Better off with a dirty submersible water pump. Cheaper, faster and more useful than the one posted. You can get a decent one for £25-30 and will empty a hot-tub in under 10mins. Mines great!!

That works, takes a long time though.

Slight overdose then. Lol. Yeah, I'd say start again too. Lol. Good luck with it.

If time is an issue, just use more hoses simultaneously!

Seriously, why bother with a pump for an above ground pool/hot tub? Just use hoses and gravity, no power/filter/pump needed. Nothing to go wrong.
