We will be closing our pool ourselves this year, for the first time, so I have a few questions about it.
1. We have a main drain in the center on the floor of the pool. What is the proper procedure for closing the main drain line? Can a shop vac be used to do this?
2. Do we need to drain water to 6 inches below the skimmer? Filling the pool in the Spring with a well takes a good amount of time.
3. Do the pillows below the cover really work? I have heard mixed reviews on whether people use the pillows, or not. I would appreciate some more thoughts on them.
