|You can see the ground still gets wet when washing the pool|
and duckies splashing but this is far less water than before.

The drain hose is toward the back and left.
|"sunken" duckie pool - the drain is low and at the very back|
the hose you see in front is the drain hose from the above
ground pool. Both hose drains are buried and run between
skirted hardware fabric to keep predators and snakes out
