While wishing that this long winter will end soon, my thoughts wondered to my pool. My goal this year is to close the pool myself and avoid the $380 charge. I have a farily complicated system, but the guy that closed my pool was done in about 40 minutes.
One thing that made things fast/easy is that he had a whisperflow pump lid with a connector in the top. He attached the lid to the pump. Attached a hose (I believe it was a filter connection hose) to his 3 HP cyclone blower/vac and voila.....water spewing in no time.
This setup allows him to close a pool by himself. No need to have another person trying to hold hose in pump trying to make it seal. Lid provides a super tight seal.
My question is: Has anyone fabricated a pump lid with a hose connection? If so how did you do it? What parts did you use?
