• Do not use fill-sleeve to lift or position.
  • Pool Bladders are not intended for long-term usage.  Some minor leaking may occur during normal usage.
  • Not to be used for potable water.
  • To be used on a flat surface not to exceed a variation of 3″ in grade


  1. Find a flat surface away from and down grade from buildings.
  2. Sweep area and remove any rough or sharp objects.
  3. If unit is equipped with two fill-sleeves, clamp unused closed.
  4. Position unit so it lays flat with no wrinkles underneath to ensure full filling capability.


  1. Tether discharge hose to fill-sleeve.  Discharge hose can be attached with zip-ties
    or hose clamps.  Make sure the connection is secured tightly to reduce leakage. (fig 1 & 2)
  2. The Pool Bladder is full when the top-to-bottom seam is 10″ from the ground.
  3. Purge air from bladder by completely removing air purge cap.  This will allow greater water volume and aid in draining.  Replace cap when water begins to flow. (fig 3)


  1. Insert suction hose, with strainer attached, into fill-sleeve.  Let the hose penetrate deep into unit as to allow
    suction to occur close to the middle.  This will allow the pump to discharge as much water as
    possible. (fig 4 & 5)
  2. As the water level drops the Pool Bladder will collapse in on the strainer allowing the strainer to maintain suction.  (fig 6 – 9)
  3. When the pump starts to strain under the load caused by the collapsing Pool Bladder, turn the pump to idle begin forcing water towards the strainer. (fig 8 & 9)
  4. When no more water can be removed by the pump, remove suction line.
  5. To remove remaining water, fold the corner of the bladder under so fill sleeve is at the edge of the fold.  (fig 10)
  6. Work remaining water towards fill sleeve (fig 11).  Most of the water will pour out of the fill sleeve, but some will collect in the folded-under corner.  Lift this corner to drain remaining water (fig 12)
