I have read the sticky of the pool closing procedure and have a few questions.
My main concern is closing it properly so nothing is broken during open season.
I am in Toronto, Canada if that helps.
1) I understand the concept of draining the water below the jets and than blowing out the lines via shop vac. Where do I place the shop vac to blow the lines out? Would that be in the skimmer area where there are 2 holes?
2) I heard mixed reviews between adding anti freeze or not. Is this necessary?
3) I heard mixed reviews between blowing out the main drain, or not. What do I need to do with this? If so, where do I put the shop vac air to make that happen? It was mentioned to blow out the main drain until you see bubbles and than plug the valve. How do I find what plugs the main drain?
4) Do I need to disassemble the filter and drain it? I don't think a single company I had hired to close my pool before has ever done this.
Thank you kindly,
