    Does this make sense?

    I planned on finishing up closing the pool this weekend, and am currently lowering the water level. I live in Wilmington, DE, and we are expecting to get 8 - 12 inches of rain over the next three days or so. I'm thinking rather than blow out the lines and completely close the pool now, I just wait until the storm is over, to see if I want or need to pump out more water. Once I've blown out the lines and plugged them, it will be more of a hassle to do. I have a safety cover that is already on, save for a few of the hooks so I can see the returns and where the water line is. I figure I can hook everything up, then unhook a few again to finish things off. This way, I'm not worried about debris getting in the pool. Sound reasonable?

    Yes...good idea, you will have to pump water out regardless. You might as well wsit and utilize your pump.
