I think this got lost in another post so i started a new thread.
We left our pool open the first year but want to close it this winter for the first time. I've read everything I can but still have a few questions,
1) I'm getting a new Loop Loc mesh in a few weeks, but we get a lot of rain/snow and the water level is going to raise back into the skimmers eventualy, do you just watch it and keep pumping it out to keep the water level down below the skimmers? Why plug the skimmers if the water level is kept below them?
2) Is the exposed dry plaster a problem when draining down below the returns? I keep hearing it has to stay wet or it can crack.
3) We have a big compressor and can get air to the main drain, but to seal it off do you just turn the hayward valve between 2 settings and leave it?
4) I guess the Polaris pump/line drains the same way....just blow it out?
