Pool Draining Guide/Codes

Posted in: Westleigh
POOL DRAINING TIPS (excerpt from Southern Nevada Water Authority?’s web-site ( under ?“swimming pool?” search)
Before you drain your pool, check with your pool professional and check your pool chemistry. It may be time to drain your pool if the:
?• Total dissolved solids (TDS) exceed 1,500 parts per million (ppm), or
?• Calcium hardness exceeds 350 ppm (or about 20 grains)

Local water-waste ordinances and some water providers' Service Rules prohibit discharging pool water to the street or storm drain. Pool water must be drained directly to the sanitary sewer system, which allows the water to be recycled and reused.
