how to get rid of gunk at bottom of the pool

friend asked me to post this question. it'a 15 ft soft side pool.Regarding emptying a pool.

I have emptied almost all of the water out of my pool. there is a lot of debris like leaves and such. I do not have a shop vac and if I did I couldn’t reach the bottom of the pool. it has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes!

This is a soft sided pool.

Any suggestions?

I can put it out as a large item if it is dry and rolled up tight.

Thanks for any suggestions.

"I can put it out as a large item..."
Are they wanting to throw the pool away or clean it?

If they want to keep the pool it's a simple matter of cleaning. Get in there and remove the debris and dirt. Mop, car wash sponge and a bucket work well.

Still not sure what you are referring to. The garbage in the pool or the liner itself.
Are they replacing the vinyl liner ?

And cutting the liner into pieces never occurred to them?
