Hey guys, i've got a question in preparation for this coming winter.
My pool has been drained to just below the returns, the lines have been blown out, and anti-freeze added. (At least, it should have been, we paid for it)
The cover is on. i can certainly see that!
Last winter, after the same winterizing procedure, we had quite a bit of heavy rain and snow, and the cover lets water drip through... so the water level got incredibly high... like nearly to the cover level. i didn't really know what to do, so i ignored it.
Should this happen again this winter, i would like to be more proactive.
i've used Trouble Free Pool successfully this summer, and i'd like to continue being awesome.
So my question is:
If the water level gets too high after closing/winterizing how do you drain it? And... should i drain it?
To drain the pool, i'd have to open the valve so the pool water flows into the intakes on the floor of the pool, through the pipe into the filter, then out of the drain on the back of the filter.
But those pipes have been blown out, right? Draining the pool, i'd be sending water through them and flushing out any anti-freeze.
In the middle of winter.
Defeating the purpose of blowing them out.
Am i over thinking this?
i appreciate any advice. You people are always so helpful!
