So I would really like to close my pool myself this year. We had A&S here last year and I stayed and watched. The process doesn't look very difficult so I would really like to save the $200 this year
I have drained the water just about below the tile line (per their recommendation). The pool temp is around 56 degrees and I am about to shock it one last time.
My question is regarding blowing out the lines. Pool is about 290k gallons, 2 skimmers, 2 returns, 2 bottom drains (2 drains the come into the same main line), and one aux return. The pic shows the set up. I can add more if necessary. I am going to clean out the filter first and then put it back together.
My question is would you simply go in thought the pump drain hole with a compressor and keep the system sealed while blowing out the lines? Also, how would you set the valving to seal the system? I can seal off sections but I can't figure how to seal them all off.
