When you need to drain your pool to make repairs, the city encourages you to use this water to irrigateyour landscape. City Code prohibits homes, businesses and HOA’s from discharging your swimming pool water into the street or directly into a sewer manhole.

If you have excess water from your pool that cannot be used to irrigate your landscaping, residents can use their home’s sewer clean out, if done properly. It’s important to understand if you use your sewer clean out to drain your pool, you may be liable for any backup or other damage caused by draining a swimming pool into the city sewer.
