backyard plumbing


hello every one I am in a problem, I jus finish installing a new abobeground pool in my backyard in wich I have a game room and a porch so my pool is in the middle of 2 concrete floors. my problem is how to get the rain water out from around the pool area for proper drenage wen my pool is 2 to 3 inches below the concrete floors. wat I had in mind was storm drains and have them drain to the alley, but by the time I buried the drains they will be lower than the alley's elevation so water will not run out.the other thin I can do is to backfill arround the pool wall but the manufactor does not recomend backfilling arround the pool wall . does anybody know of anithing that i can put arround the pool wall in order to mantain the same elevation of the concrete floors and slope down to them an solve my problem.. please advise:

Sounds like you need to dig for a sump pit and install a sump pump. Be sure to use GFCI breakers or outlets.

No, The pool is on the ground. What I dont know is if I can find something to protect the pool wall when I install the blocks around the pool to create a slope towards the concrete floors and drain into the alley.
