Hey guys and gals,
I had the local pool guys close our pool today and stuck around to watch them in hopes of saving myself a couple hundred bucks every year by closing it myself. It looks really easy with the right equipment. I think I can handle everything they did on my own with the right equipment. One vital piece of equipment they had that I have never seen is a converter from their blower to the strainer basket on the pool pump. The blower hose was hooked to a square Hayward strainer door type converter and they simply replaced my strainer door with the one that had the hosed attached and blew it out. Has anyone ever seen this piece of equipment? It looked like it was made for this application, ie not something someone rednecked together. Where can I purchase on of these doors? They were using a mighty vac pump, but I can't find anyone who sells the mighty vac also selling this strainer door converter. Let me know if you have seen this thing and were I might be able to sniff one up.
