To see if it is OK to drain your pool into your storm drain or if it needs to go into your sewer line.

And you will need some PVC adapters that will connect your submersible pump to the pool hose.
And get one hose clamp to hold the hose on the PVC adapter.
Also a small can of PVC glue to glue the fitting together.
Make sure you get the right size PVC the same size as the hose you bought.
