I am ready to drain and take down my Intex Ultra, but this year for the first year I have Pentair equip, instead of Intex. I am hoping someone can walk me thru what I do to take all this down. The plan is to unhook everything and store the pump and filter in the garage and if I can, even take the heater in. (hvac neighbor will help with the gas connections, i'm worried about water in this topic).
My primary question right now is, What do I need to do with the equipment BEFORE I drain the pool? Do i need to do something now (before I drain the pool) to Pump or blow out, or otherwise remove residual water in any of the three Pentair pieces? Or do I just drain the pool, disconnect all the flex pipe, and dump any extra water from the Flex pipe, pump, filter, heater? I just need to be sure I don't incorrectly store any of this with water that can do damage, but, especially with the heater, I'm not sure how to ensure the water is all out (or how much if any sits in it when it is off) and want to be sure I don't prematurely drain the pool if I need a working pump to winterize the heater.
