I'm closing my pool for the first time. I have the cover on, pump and filter disconnected from each other. Water drained to below skimmer and return. My questions are:
1. Do I need to plug the return and skimmer or anything?
2. I know I need to store the pump inside, but do I need to store the multiport valve? Also, if they do, can I buy the plastic wrench that came with it? I broke mine in half just now trying to unscrew the valve. Its an ecco (waterways) sand filter.
Thanks for the help.
And by the way, this site is great! I had zero problems with my first summer owning a pool. Daily bleach and testing and I never had to do anything else to the water!! Many comments on how crystal clear the water was!
