    Looking for service to close in Lake county, IL (NE of Chi)

    We're new to the pool scene, so looking for a pool service to close at least this first year. Located near Gurnee, IL.

    Any recommendations? Horror stories?

    Unless you feel overwhelmed doing it yourself, there is plenty of information and help available here. No one will care more about your pool than you do!

    I suspect that's true, plus my brother-in-law who used to have an IG can give advice. On the other hand, our house's previous owners used to have a company close it - they opened themselves. And a mistake could be expensive.

    One other thing I'm a bit worried about: Our equipment (pump, filter, heater) is all in the basement of the house. Lines for it go up and exit the house at ground level, then back under the pool deck. So, once we drain water below skimmers and returns, it should be pretty straightforward to get most of the water out of the skimmers and returns. I'm thinking open the pump drain and blow back from the pool. But, what do we do about the main drain? That line also goes from bottom of pool up to above grade.
