Is it OK to leave the pump and filter out as long as it's covered during the winter?
This is my first year closing my AGP by myself and I'm just trying to figure out what the best/safest method would be. It looks like there's a wired connection on the pump that seems to be prohibiting me from disconnecting that and storing it. We've stored the filter in previous years and went through the hassle of cleaning all the sand out and everything but after reading on here, it seems like that is unnecessary and that all you need to do is drain the water from the filter and that's it. Pop a cover on it and it should be good. Am I overlooking something?
