Ok, this may get long, so i apologize in advance. (I will post pics in the second post of this thread.) It's only 2 years in on our new pool, and i am already tired of paying $520 to have the company take 16 minutes to close my pool. I would like to start closing on my own next year so i will post my questions now while they are fresh in my head after watching them close a few days ago. Click to expand... Have you read the closing section in Pool School? Also, have you read my thread? Concept of closing an IG Swimming PoolThe concept of closing an in ground swimming pool I am assuming YES as you mention a modified cover. Closing your own pool requires reading, watching and attempting yourself, until you are comfortable. Next year, when you open your own pool (which is a breeze), go back and run a test in clearing the lines. When I created my cover, purchased the Cyclone, the first thing I did was run a test on the skimmers (suction side), and also the main drain. Considering I was comfortable with everything, I put the unit and cover away and waited until the fall. You could also clear one return, plug, make sure there are no leaks and call it a day. This way you know how to close clear the lines. I believe the pool was built from a company in Howell, NJ? And are you using them for the closing and opening and is $520, the total cost for both, which sounds about what they charge. If you are paying $520 for the closing, that is seriously a lot of money in this area. Thanks!
I?ve read your articles and looked at a lot of videos, but I?m not sure on my particular setup about where to position the MPV and if I move the other valves at all (I know to close of main drains after flushing to prevent water from getting back in after you turn cyclone off). I?m asking because I do t think the guys that closed the other day moved any other valve but the main drain one. Does the filter itself get blown out, or put it in recirculate setting to avoid the filter and just drain the filter? (I wasn?t sure on your article) The company I used is the one from Toms River, and yes, the $520 is open and close (after tax). thanks!!
The thread is detailed. You have to take time to read it and read it over and over. Yes, on recirculate. The filter is cleared at the same time, just like the heater, etc. Follow the piping and you will understand better.- - - Updated - - - vig1116 said: The company I used is the one from Toms River, and yes, the $520 is open and close (after tax).thanks!!
