1st time closing and I have some questions.
How low do I lower the water. My guess is below the returns to keep ice from pulling out the rubber return stoppers?
I guess I am a bit confused b/c by spring b/c of so much rain and snow the water level is usually back up to normal. I just don't know how far down to take it in the fall.
I have two skimmers. I think last year when I moved in there were antifreeze bottles in the skimmers but i can't remember what was in the bottles. Do I leave some antifreeze in the bottles or weight them down with rocks inside or something? I guess i don't completely understand what this is for. I thin it is to keep ice from cracking the skimmer wall if water collects in there somehow. The skimmers were plugged with rubber stoppers too with the skimmer well filled with anitfreeze. I do not have aquadoors. the skimmer is just open to the pool. I think the skimmer cover was also covered with a trash bag and a rock on top of it to weigh it down. I guess this is to keep water form entering in the top?
