Going to try to close my pool by myself for the first time.
A couple questions about blowing out my lines (I have two skimmers, 3 returns, and one main drain in the deep end)
My impression from reading some posts and watching some videos is that I can plug my blower (I plan on using the Cyclone vacuum and blower - 3 HP) directly into one of the skimmer return and then, assuming I can control the airflow using valves and plugs I can blow out all the lines from that one connection.
First, does this sound feasible?
Should I be bypassing the filter when I do this (I have a cartridge filter)? If not, should I take the cartridges out before I do this? If I should bypass the filter and for some reason I can’t - will I need to change plans and blow the lines out from the equipment pad?
