    Working on the water lines with a full pool?

    Hi everyone,

    I need to work on the tigerflex around the jets of the pool, however the pool is already filled.

    I was wondering if there was a way to plug the jets from the pool side, and turn off the equipment so that I could temporarily drain the lines and do some quick reconfiguration on them. I really want to avoid draining the pool if at all possible.

    Thanks everyone!

    Welcome to TFP!

    You could just put winterizing plugs in them.

    or

    If you can't find those plugs, carefully measure the holes and head for an auto parts store. They sell rubber freeze plugs. Same principle, maybe not as deep. http://www.dormanproducts.com/c-354-exp ... ubber.aspx

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
