Hello, I recently hired someone to close my pool and they did two things differently than my last pool closer. I am still a newbie and plan on doing it myself next year, but want to make sure I do everything right.
1) They didnt take the light out. The pool company that closed my pool last year did. Is this an issue?
2) They did nothing related to the main drain at the bottom of the pool. I remember the prior company doing something, but I dont remember. When I asked them why they did nothing they indicated that they have been doing this for X number of years without pools and never had a problem. Some have indicated that you can blow out the main drain until the air comes out and then "close it" (or something like that). Is this ncessary? I will be attaching photos of the setup. I have just installed a brand new liner so the last thing I want is to have a potential issue with the main drain.
Also, some acorns fell to the bottom of the pool and they didnt pull them out before they closed, should I fish those out?
