Little Tykes Tight Fit Pool

We are trying to figure out how to best take care of this pool through the winter. We are trying to take it all apart and it is not really coming apart. If we leave it up through the winter is it going to hold up with the wind snow and rain.

Your best bet is to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a Thermal Tarp. This will make sure that seams and connector parts don't become damaged in harsh weather. Drape the tarp over the top and get some decorative rocks or stones and place them all around the edges of the tarp, as to hold it down and still look nice in the fall and winter seasons.
Hope you liked to advice!

How do i winterize my pool

Remove all drain plugs, open any valve you can and have. split apart any union, and depending on the part of the country you live in, the permafrost is a factor. If you freeze below ground, then you will also need to empty your pool down below the lowest inlet fitting and then blow the water out of the lines.
Once clear of excess water, plug the holes so rain water does not refill them!
  • heater will have 2-4 drain/winter plugs
    • also remove the pressure switch
  • pump will normally have 2 plugs
    • Open & remove lid from hair & lint pot
  • Pool sweep booster pump has 1 plug
Any low spots in the plumbing will trap water in them. Drill & tap a hole - 1/4" Normal pipe thread - that is the most common size of a winterizing drain plug. Others may just cut the pipe right at the lowest spot and glue in a union for future winterizing.

There's water leaking from side of heater

this is 100% broken heat exchanger its the coils inside of heater that heats the water this usually happines from really old age or because your climate temperature is below freezing and broke the coils, i see it all the time in winter season, best way to prevent this is to run your heater for fifteen minutes every month and make sure pool equipment runs all day everyday when its really cold out you can start running system normaly after your outside temp is warmer. its better to get a new heater when this happines heat exchanger is hard to install for most tech's pretty much have to take whole top part of heater off and is also expensive part

Open the plugs on the bottom front of the pump pot and on the pump housing itself. These two plugs will do the pump and just the pump. You should have simmilar plugs on the filter, heater, chlorinator and any other equiptment on the system.

My G3 can't maneuver around the steps of my pool. It conctinally gets stuck. The pool is figure 8 shaped with curved steps at the shallow end that form a roughly 45 degree angle with the base of the pool....

The best way to remove it is to make sure its not ice cold. It will snap off but be careful and gentle. You might try either adding a hose or taking one off to prevent the sticking. Also, try changing the hoses from one end to the other.

Are you asking how to drain it? If so some older models come with a drain **** located on the bottom side of the black manifold. It is brass. You can loosen the drain **** and the water will drain out, be careful when tightening the drain **** back up though, they can break easily. You do not have to put much torque on it at all, dont even put a tool on it at first, if it leaks, then tighten it a little more. The newer models come with a brass plug instead of a drain **** and you can remove the brass plug. Or the best way i think is to unhook both unions for the inlet and outlet on the heater, use a shop vac on blow, and blow the water out. But if you are winterizing the pool equipment, the heater is not the only thing that needs to be drained.
