    Pool opening question

    Hey guys back for Season 2 of BBB. Under the cover the pool is blue and clear I'm opening this weekend and I have plumbing antifreeze in my return lines and pump basket, should I make an attempt to remove all of that before I start the pump back up for the season or is it fine to just let it mix in the pool?

    What effects will it have on the water? if any.

    Also I have a significant amount of water on my cover. Do you think I can hook up a hose to the skimmer and run the pump with the filter on drain to drain the water from the cover. I don't have a cover pump

    Is your cover solid? Maybe rent or borrow a pump? Or just create a syphon? Do you have a shop vac? Otherwise I am intrigued by your idea....

    The antifreeze won't hurt anything and it's minor amount compared to size of the pool.
