I am attempting to winterize my pool myself this year.
(we had a bad experience with the pool company last year)
I opened the skimmer box and there are two lines at the bottom.
(aquagenie single skimmer, single return)
I attached an air compressor to the drain valve on the skimmer at the pump to blow the lines out.
1 line goes to the pump which seems fine.
the other line seems to be an equalizer line.
I put a shop vac on it, but it seems to keep filling up with water.
the pool skimmer box and return is sealed in the pool with an aqua genie cover (plastic door w/ rubber gasket).
and the equalizer line (in the pool) has a plug in it.
where can this water be coming from?
Am I somehow pulling it through the pool skimmer cover with the shopvac?
thanks all for any suggestions...
