I have decided to save money this year by opening the pool myself. I can handle the chemicals, cover cleaning and removal, etc. My questions are about the plugs and the filter. I don't want to break anything!! I talked to the pros about just doing the following but it only saves me $50.
Once I have the water to the proper level, I know that I need to remove any plugs. Where will I find these?
Then, I need to turn on the filtration system. I see that I need to prime the pump and get any air out of the filtration system before starting it up. Can anyone help me out here? I have a Hayward Vari-Flo Valve and Pro Grid DE Filter if that helps...
Then I think I'm good to go with adding chemicals after about 12 hours and making sure everything is balanced.
