    high water level after closing

    Closed the pool about 5 weeks ago to 3 inches below returns. Using a saftey mesh loop loc cover and the water level is now well into the skimmer about 3 inches below normal water line. Anti-freeze in the skimmer has been washed away.

    Should I be draining a few inches from the pool to get the water level at least back below the skimmer before we get a hard freeze (located in Canada)?

    Buy a "gizmo" for the skimmer.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!

    buy a gizmo and cut a piece of a noodle and wedge inside the skimmer for added protection.
