First post, although I've been lurking for several months. I switched to BBB in June with great success and the pool has never looked better in the 8 years its been installed. I've opened the pool the past 3-4 years with no problem and was using the pool store for water testing and closing. Since I'm testing my own water now, I'd like to break away completely from the pool store and close the pool myself this year. I've watched the pool people close my pool and they use some type of blower to blow the water out of my return lines, skimmer, and bottom drain. How can I achieve this on my own? I have a small air compressor, but will this do the trick? Any advice on closing would be greatly appreciated as I would like to say "bye" to the pool store for good.
