Forum Title: Closed it myself! Hope it works
added some polyquat cause we get warm and cold weather mixed a lot... Was pretty easy really... Took about 25 mins to put the cover on... (with help of my father in law) Drained it below the return lines about 2 feet total with the main drains so i could blow those out with a shop vac... put the plugs in the return pipes. blew some air into the main drains... but yea... can't really figure out how those stay dry, but they are all 4 or 5 feet below ground. shop vacced the water out of the skimmers after blowing out water with the shop vac, till there was none in the bottom of them, and put in the gizmos. took the plug out of the sand filter... added antifreeze to the pump, and turned off the power. probably took 45 mins total after the water was down... Good times! Saved 350 to 400 bucks... depending what they used to decide to add from the pool store. Thanks TFP!!! Till next year.

blew some air into the main drains... but yea... can't really figure out how those stay dry, but they are all 4 or 5 feet below ground Click to expand... Can you explain a little more in detail? Were you successful in removing the water through the main drain piping and closing the valve to create an air lock? The water should be bubbling for at least 45 seconds to 1 minute? Thanks!
