    Uhmm, why can't they just backwash the pools, thereby draining them. :eek: :confused:That way you also eliminate the problem of toddlers or pets wandering in and drowning as well as ridding neighborhoods of malaria breeding grounds.


    Sounds like a decent business idea for someone out west. :smile: :yup:

    probably cheaper to throw a few fish in them instead of spending man-hours flushing them, Only to have rainwater fill them again

    First of all, backwashing a pool is not draining it. It's reversing the flow of the water to clean a filter and pump system. Draining is draining; backwashing is backwashing; backwashing is not draining.

    But in any case, let me get this right here -- you'd rather the kids and pets fall into a drained pool so they have no chance of survival akin to falling into a filled pool where they could swim to safety. In a drained pool, certain death is most likely by falling on the concrete/cement/hard bottom of a pool whether instantly or because of injury they cannot escape, climb out, get out and bleed to death or die from exposure. If that happened, I'm sure you'd be puling about having the pool drained causing harm.

    Get it right, first off, and then make up your mind -- drained to kill or filled to give someone/something a chance at surviving ...

    Besides, no money for chlorine and maintenance probably indicates getting paid to drain them isn't going to happen either.

    After reading the story about the mother in NM that killed her child at the playground. What I think ought to happen with these places is that they be made extremely affordable, start moving apartment dwellers into them and then level the older dilapidated apartment buildings and getting rid of those eye sores for urban renewal ? Some/many of those new places are still overinflated for the economic times and incomes of the area. It's evident the only way those places are ever going to be sold is at next to nothing at foreclosure prices in a foreclosure auction anyway ?

    Because we're talking about banks. Do you really think they would cough up the money to do that unless it was mandatory? I don't...

    Maybe if they sued the banks that foreclosed on the owners they might be less inclined to foreclose so quickly. Whats the sense of throwing someone out of a home that is then gonna sit empty for who knows how long. Let them live there and keep up the place until they sell it. Now I hear that they are renting the places out to people because its easier to sell a property that looks lived in. Its all fucked up.
