Hello, I hesitate

between left turn and close my pool for winter. I know it's a little late in the season to do so.
I have a system with stairs Desjoyaux Tonic. Plastic valves are half broken and very difficult to close that always makes me hesitate to do it myself, I learned to my need to drain the heat pump.. but for the rest of the winter I admit to not being developed to remove my pump and I'm tired of paying for the closing and restarting. Consumer edf continuous cost me probably not more expensive, but is responsible eco months.
I'm in a rather cold in winter and I always fear of a sudden freeze that I will burn everything.
If you have a similar system, how do you do?
Thanks for your answers

Good evening

must overwinter your pool!

you drain your pool to get water in the inlet jets and skimmers
you drain your pump, filter, heater and other thing or water was going inside!

then that your pool does not distort the frost you retrieve empty plastic bottles you fill them with little sand so that it floats a half. you take a string and you attach the bottle to another one of 050/0.60 cm apart from each other. you position the bottles so it is that they cross the pool.

and in case of freezing the bottles instead of crashing down your pool departs

Thank fmru,

J have already hibernated the other years and have floats. Mon problem in dismantling pump which do not know which end catch. Lots of pipes, valves etc.. I'm afraid to make mistakes and I thought to let it run at minimum was less risky

let turn a minimum and if it will drop your pipes freeze hard anyway.

is not because the water is moving it can not freeze!.
