It’s not a floor cleaning system, just returns. They don’t have any mechanism to “pop up”. I asked my PB, they said it is “ probably fine” as long as the 3 ft off line from the filter to to underground are blown out.
We're in Ohio - we don't use the autocover as a winter cover - we keep the cover in the open position and use a solid winter cover. Not sure what is best - wear and tear on the autocover from snow/ice/winter elements versus the cost of the winter cover/taps etc.
I have 6 floor returns, all on 1 valve. I am using a large stand up compressor directly into a tapped 1/4" fitting on the return side. I let the compressor completely fill the tank, then let it blow out the line with all other return lines closed. I am seeing a good amount of air bubbles...

I currently run my VSR pump continuously at 35GPM which keeps my pool nice and clean. However I have a chlorinator that does not get enough water flow when my VSR pump is running at such a low speed. I am looking to run the pump at a faster speed for maybe 1-2 hours a night to try to pick...
