    usually below the return lines and skimmer so they can be cleared of water and capped off for winter. This is typically 12-18 inches from the top of the pool depending on the style.

    Re: winterizing

    I am new to winterizing and am wandering? My pool package came with a pool cover that is for a 24 round pool real size 27 so if the pool is lowered down 18" this makes the winter cover to small??
