First Time Closing IG Pool On My Own!

Postby webguynow » Tue 25 Oct, 2016 16:11

OK great; I've done most of my own maintenance for the pool anyway over last 5 years

I'll keep this real basic -
I borrowed an air compressor (2hp, 120psi, 5gal tang)
What fixture or DIY connection do I use, to attach and blow-out 1.5" PVC pool skimmer line ?

I'll also have to do the same on the water line, that provides the feed from the house out to the pool-house / hose.

looking forward to reading your tips and advice.

When closing your pool, do check the pool fence. It will help in keeping unwanted guests away.
