Lower Water below Skimmer or Cover Plate

Postby TracyH » Fri 20 Oct, 2006 13:24

I have a semi-inground pool that I am closing for the first time. Which is the preferred method to close the pool ???
1) Lower the water level below the skimmer and return lines and then put the winter cover on accordingly.

2) Maintain the water level and cover the skimmer inlet with a cover plate.

Or does this just come down to personnal preference ??? I live in NY where I normally get a fair amount of rain/snow over the winter.
Interested to here thoughts about this.
