pool looked soooo beautiful before closing. Let’s see how it looks next year April. I’m confident all will be well. Keeping my fingers crossed 🤞.
Had to fix leak at the connection of pump discharge. O ring was split in half so I replaced the o ring and used Teflon tape and rectorseal number 5 pipe thread sealant. The local Napa is the only store that was able to properly match up the o ring. Always buy spears.
Turned the solar back on, had Kokapelli (my S-300) clean it up, and I had to reseat the display board in the AquaRite SWG. With this little stretch of warm weather, I’m going to try and get a few more pool days in before giving up for the year.
Closed up for winter last weekend. Heat pump has been off for a while, and the water was down to 51.
2nd year closing with "Bungee-Plugs" return plugs. Still very happy with the product compared to the expansion plugs I was originally using. I slipped with the channel locks, though, and cracked a face plate on one of the returns, so today I replaced it, and re-blew the return lines.
