    Guys I posted a while back asking for advice on something I could use to empty my pool, I can't find the thread lol! What does everyone use? I have no idea about these things, looking for something reasonably priced. Thanks!

    A hand held bucket and good old fashioned elbow grease!! Once the kiddie pool is half empty, I just lift it by one side and dump it on the ground. All the "kids" enjoy the mess it makes!!! and end up playing in the mud puddles for hours, long after the kiddie pool is filled back up and ready for more. For our slightly larger pre-fab pool, I use a siphon hose and let it run onto our garden, or at least where the garden used to be...

    Lol sounds like fun! I've upgraded the paddling pool to a bigger and deeper one. I've a syphon, a drill powered suction thing neither of which work! It's just me and my trusty bucket which I have to say is going to give me a hernia lol!!
