I can no longer afford the $350 it takes each time i need my pool opened or closed. My PB closed my IG pool this past winter when I was not home, so I was not able to watch the process. I want very much to open the pool myself this spring. I have read the posted Opening the Pool (General) and (Detailed), but was quite dismayed as it appeared to be meant for those people somewhat familiar with the process and/or equipment. The article talks about removing plugs and replacing return outlet fittings, unplugging pipes in the pool and filter system area; hooking up pump, filter and other additional equip, etc; starting and checking the system. The only thing i know for sure to do is to raise the water level into the skimmer. After that, i haven't a clue. What pipes get unplugged, what gets re-attached, etc? Is there someone that can give me simple step-by-step instructions on how to open my pool by myself? Is there more information on the website that I have overlooked? I switched to the BBB method last year and use the TF 100 faithfully, so getting the water in shape is easy for me. The rest, I need help!
