I'm getting ready to close my inground pool. This is the first year I'll be doing it on my own.
I've read the article in Pool School about this and have a few questions.
1. How do I get the antifreeze into the lines? When I watched the "professionals" do this last year, they blew air into the lines, closing each line with a rubber plug as they shifted the air flow from one line to the other. So by the end of the blowing process, the skimmer and the return both had rubber plugs, and then another plug was placed in the pump basket area, thus sealing air in all the lines. They never added antifreeze, so I'm not sure how to add it following their steps.
2. Last year I watched the people who closed our pool connect the compressor to the front of the pump (it looked like they unscrewed something and attached the compressor hose straight to the pump and blew all the air through that). Is there a special fitting I will need to hook up a compressor to this hole on the pump?
