First - thank you for this site. Without it, I would have lost a LOT of money opening my pool.
This is my first pool and just wanted to run a few question by experts.
We live in Upstate NY and it does get very cold here. I'm going to add anti-freeze to my three supply lines - (1) do I need to add to the return line? Also, (2) how much do you fill per line? Just curious if you fill each line entirely until it begins to overflow or not.
I'm definitely getting a gizmo expansion device for the skimmer this year as well, or if there are other suggestions please let me know.
Lastly, I came across this WinterBall on Amazon. (3) Worth purchasing it or should I simply add algae prevention chemicals before closing.
Oh wait, final questions. (4) Is there a temperature to close the pool? For example, this week it's going to be 80-85 degrees. Just curious if there is a good "time" to close to keep mold from growing. Thank you very much!
