    Closing above ground pool for the first time.

    Hi guys, I have decided to close my pool myself. So I read these instructions, they are seems to be very detailed however I did not find a step when I remove water with the air pressure from the system just drainage.
    My pool is half way underground, however it is still called above ground pool.

    Here is what I understand I have to do:

    1. Clean the pool and keep in in shock level for 24 hours with pump running
    2. Drain the water below the skimmer 6 inch, however in my case the returns might still be under the water, should the returns be also above the water ?
    3. I think now I have run the air pressure through the system to make sure no water in pipes, here is my question how I can run the air ? with air compressor ? If yes where do I have to connect it too.
    3. After the water is out and air goes through the pipes I close returns with rubber plugs I have one by one.
    4. I drain the filter, heater and pump unscrew the plugs and do not screw them back!
    5. put the cover on.

    Please advice me on what I am doing wrong if any and what might be the better steps. Thank you
