My son in law brought my truck home so I could take a chipper shredder to the dump. It rained all day.
Today I will continue to take off the blue tarp off the solar heater and then start hooking up the pool. Photo of half the blue tarp.
In the photo you can see the stockings covering the pipe opening. The stocking lets the air and water out and keeps wasps, mice and spiders from creating nests which block the flow of water.
With our garden hose that I roll up for the winter I just screw both ends together after I drain the hose for winter.
