winterize main drain in above ground

Postby marg1bella » Mon 29 Oct, 2007 11:34

We had a main drain installed this year in our above ground and we do not know how to close it off so we can fill it with antifreeze? Any ideas? Thanks.

should be able to put a 1 1/2" or 2" plug inside the main drain itself, have to get in the water and remove the cover and you will be able to see it. Good Luck
