Pool Draining and Refilling

Because storm drains flow untreated water into Lake Mead, it is illegal to drain swimming pools into the street, gutters, or storm drains. The penalty for violation is $500 per incident. To properly drain your pool, attach your drainage hose to your sewer clean-out pipe. The clean-out pipe is usually located by the hose bib, and may be inside a green box.

Once your pool has been refilled, please note that your water bill will increase in the following billing cycle.
