From your yard to the street where it would drain. If you have a canal in the back you could send it that way. I'd just avoid low areas and your neighbors yard but once it hits the street its just like any rain it will go to the drain.

Dumping chlorinated water into a canal could be against the law and end up with you receiving a heavy fine! I would check with the town first.

You do realize that 99% of street sewers dump directly into surrounding lakes/canals right?

Yes City Guy I do realize that, but each County, Town, City might prohibit the dumping of chlorinated water into a canal. That's why I said "could be against the law."

side yard......

In storm prep, don't dump the pool! Backyard would have to be totally submerged to flood your home, if the whole backyard is submerged the pool being 6 inches lower won't make a difference anyway! A lowered pool will act as a sewer for the yard, an overflowing pool will push debris away from the pool not towards it.

Most houses have a 4-6 inch step from patio to inside of the house. So you need atleast that many inches to get your house wet regardless if you have a pool or not......pool level is irrelevant.
