You get a hose, put one end of the hose in the pool run the other end of the hose to a storm drain and suck till you choke on the nasty **** then walk away.

most of them have a drain feature that allows you to swap the pump output from the pool to the sewage line. if the pool is that gross you'll have to pull the filter out so it doesn't get clogged up. Leave a not saying something like "this pool drained for your lazy *** convenience"

Get a huge sheet of canvas and cover the pool but not touching the water....then make a small funnel up to their door !

After pouring the oil...would it be to unsafe to light it? That'd kill all the bugs in the area, I'd think.

That's not true. My sister uses them in big trashcans she catches rainwater in to water her plants. It kills them.

Mosquito larvae don't grow in circulating water anyway.

FWIW, we have the Asian mosquitoes bad in my back yard. The Avon Skin so soft mosquito repellent seems to work better than the deet based stuff.

I'll be putting bat houses up this year. I'd rather have rabies than mosquito bites.
