We recently moved into a house with a hot tub in the basement. We would like to drain it, but aren't sure how? Please see the attached pic for the set up. The hose on the right comes from the bottom of the filter, passes by the white handle in the middle, then goes up to a tap. There is a black hose from the tap that goes to a floor drain. I turned the tap on and can hear water flowing very slowly, but not sure how it's going to fully drain with the tap up so high. I'm assuming it pumps somehow, but not sure what to do. Thoughts?

It is supposed to be a pressure drain, and you run the pump. It will only work until it gets low enough to suck air in through the skimmer filter, unless you plug off the filter port.
