Newbie winterizing questions

SpeckledhenSeptember 22, 2012

Hello All,

We are scheduled to have our 15,500 gallon vinyl pool closed this week and I have a couple of questions.

1: Should I keep the pool as clean as possible until the closing, or can I let it sit for the next week or so?

2: What is the process for winterizing the LED light? I have a Fusion brand LED and there is apparently a winterizing plug designed especially for it. I don't have it, and the original PB and I no longer communicate. Would any 1.5" plug work?

Any other suggestions or comments are welcome!

Where are you. Some places have deep frost lines, others don't.

The LED light should be fine left alone as it is below the frost line.

Spring start up will be easier but is not required.
