Hi guys, just wanted to get an opinion on the closing of my pool
This is the firt time I do it and so far I have balance the water chemistry, drained the water about 8 inches below skimmer, put a winter cover, removed all equipment and put in my basement.
The pool store near my house told me to put this sort of styrofoam tube (4 feet long, about 1 inch diameter) down the drain and put 4 litres of antifreeze, then put a styrofoam cut-out of the skimmer into the skimmer.
the problem is that I cant seem to to this styrofoam tube in the drain more than 2 feet, it's very cheaply made, so as soon as I need to push it down with a little presure, it bends and twist..
is the tube really necesary, can I just put antifreeze and thats it
by the way I live in montreal, so it's **** cold in the winter
thanks for your help
