I'm a master of this stuff.

Have you got a pump room?

Dad's emptying function never emptied it that quick, we just used to backwash and open the overflow and it would drain in no time.

Otherwise, get a man in.

The guy sitting in the next office is a world expert on the design of swimming pools. He says "get a man in"

I say, act like an engineer, turn the thingy and see what happens.

The pool is half empty and green, I want to learn how to do it myself. I think I will just turn it to various positions and see what happens. I am thinking either 'backwash' or 'waste'

You have to be really careful emptying a pool, get the experts in and watch them for next time.

It is already half empty, I just need to drain it a few inches so that they can re tile the small pool

It is like the washing machine question on another thread. Get the servants to do it.

You seem obsessed with "servants" why?

Obsessed ? I am taking the p*** ! And/or suggesting you pay someone some money to do something you cannot do yourself. "The labourer is worthy of his hire."

Leave a floating turd usually empties a pool pretty damn quickly. I find.
