Hello pool folks,
This is my first time closing my 18x36 in ground SW pool. The design is such that the returns are about half way down the shallow end wall (about 2 feet give or take) which means a LOT of draining.
The pool store recommended 'duck plugs' http://www.leaktools.com/product/WDP150.html. I feel uncertain about these and don't want to damage my plumbing, but also don't want to drain $100+ of water for no reason.
Just looking for some feedback, has anyone used these before. I saw another post but the valve looked a little more substantial. Do I still drain below the skimmer and put a gizmo in there?
They suggested I use antifreeze in the lines after blowing them out, but in the spring, does this just get dumped in the pool??
I'd appreciate any feedback you can give on this technique.
Also I'm getting conflicting info on closing the SW pool (first year with SWG). I don't mean the equipment, I understand that, but what to add to it. Is it different than non-salt? My salt is quite low, but I didn't want to add a bunch now only to drain it out so I figured I'd add some in the spring. I'm closing with a tarp (no safety cover).
