We were able to drain most of the water in the pool with the small electric pump we found in the shed. However... the last few inches, leaves and all, will need to be taken out by hand. We will hook up the wet/dry vac tomorrow to suck up the rest of the water. But what about the leaves? Aha! That why we had kids! (Well, not really, but they were willing to jump in the pool and scoop out the leaves.)
DD started getting a little grossed out, but Max just went to town with the net. We finally came up with a good division of labor:
Max tossed the leaves up on the side of the pool deck,
DD swept up and threw the leaves into the debris pile.
Worked great... and I didn't even get wet. I love supervising.
