Good to hear you made it through OK.  You are not the first I've heard 
of recently that depended on electric pumps and had the power fail.

I lived on 5ha northeast of Perth for several years.  We had a 27kl 
above-ground pool that we actually used occasionally.  Mainly we kept it 
for firefighting.  I connected a petrol pump to it and enough hose to 
reach more than half way around the house.  Primed and ready 24/7.  Best 
use I know of for a pool!
