It's fine to drain your pool; the problem is how and where you do it!
Draining your pool into the street or onto hard surfaces allows pool chemicals, solids, and algae to enter the storm drains, which run directly into the lake where families swim and play.
Unmanaged pool runoff is unhealthy for the water and the creatures living there. And discharging done wrong can be against the law! Make your lake happy, and make sure you—or your pool service—know how to do it right!
Pool maintenance doesn't have to be a problem. What will you do to help?
