Draining your swimming pool

Just a reminder that the City of Chandler requires that all swimming pool and spa water discharges be maintained on private property, or in a sanitary sewer cleanout on private property. During general maintenance, when backwashing your pool, drainage into the sewer cleanout is not necessary as long as the discharge is maintained on your private property.

The sewer cleanout is typically a three- or four-inch black pipe about level with the landscaping, typically located close to the home. It may have a black cap with a raised square nut or a recessed slot, which can be unscrewed providing access for the pool water disposal.

Draining your swimming pool onto the street or the golf course is a violation of the city’s ordinance.
