We're renting a pump to replace half the water in our pool- can we just drin the water into the street? I've looked online and have found nothing.

I don't think there's any issue draining to the street. However, it's so dry, why not put it on your yard. I know you're draining due to high CYA. I done this in the past and just drained the water into the grass. No harm done and I just move the hose when one area was soaked.

Does your pump have a nozzle to drain? A pump will be faster but using the nozzle and a garden hose is free.

Yes, we have done this on several occasions and I see pool companies doing it frequently.

My only suggestion would be to do it during the night time hours to minimize the impact on your neighbors having to drive through the water in the street (if there is any). I'm not sure it would be a good idea to water your lawn with all those chemicals so you should check with a landscaping company or maybe TruGreen to see if that water would be detremental to your sod.
