Sorry for the questions but after reading a ton I am confused on a few things.
4ft to 8ft deep inground vinyl liner pool. Steel structure framing. I live in Northeast PA so I expect a tough winter.
Question #1) With vinyl liner do I still drain water below the skimmer or is that a problem for the liner?? I have a gizzmo in there and plan to blow out lines with that in place. Not sure if I need to drain below skimmer or not due to vinyl liner
Question #2) I have a light just below the returns so that triggered question #1. If I drain 6 inches below skimmer I am close to the light and below returns. From what I have read the light should be > 4 inches below water surface.
Question #3) Assuming I do not need to drain below skimmer my returns will be underwater then. I have on hand those fancy one way plugs so I can blow out the line. I assume that is aok.
Question #4) I plan on using anit-freeze (Pool anti-freeze) in returns and skimmers after blown out. I live in NE PA so I assume this is an extra precaution
If I do not need to drain below skimmer questions 2-4 are null and void....I think
Thanks a ton for your help. I am close but just want to ensure I got it right.
