Apologies for this likely being covered but I’m too lazy to search more than 5min.

I’ve got the water drained out of the simple plumbing, filter out and rinsed and set aside also. Do I need to worry about plugging the skimmer and return lines as well? Both have valves to close which will be shut butshould the ports be capped inside the pool? Also, I assume lowes has simple threaded caps for where I remove the SWG, is that an accurate assumption?
