This is my first year closing a newly installed AGP. I have an Aquador and was able to utilize it in addition to a winterizing plug for the Pentair Aqualuminator to seal off my pool without having to lower the water which currently sits about mid-skimmer. I have heard mixed recommendations about the need to lower the water. I live on Long Island which typically gets pretty cold during the Winter months. Am I okay leaving the water where it currently is or should I lower it? I thought one of the main benefits of the Aquador is that it eliminates the need to lower the water below the simmer, but if there is a possibility of something getting damaged from ice expansion in combination with my fairly high waterline I will do some draining.
