First year with this pool. An acquaintance who has worked on pools for a living for a long time says I don't need to drain below skimmer/returns to winterize... mentioned a plug I could buy to thread into the skimmer that would aid in blowing out as well as accommodating ice expansion; blow out & plug skimmer/returns; no antifreeze.
Does anyone else do this? I'm in Kansas, things freeze up pretty good here. Times are lean and water is expensive to just drain out.
I know when we looked at the house the first time, before the pool was opened, whoever had closed the pool had lowered the water.
Thanks for any help!
