We want to close our own swimming pool this year and need an air blower thing that blows the water out of the lines. I don't know what it is called.

Can someone tell us what we need to close our pool up and where we can get the product?

thanks.

Here is some info that will help.  Do not need a real tool, just a shop vac

Blow out the water from your plumbing lines. You can do this using a shop vac. Use the discharge of the shop vac to blow water out of each line from the filter system. As the water is purged from each line, you will need to put a plug in the lines at the pool end. Some fittings will allow for a threaded plug, which is best. Be sure to use a plug with a rubber gasket or "O" ring to make a seal, or the water may fill the line back up. If your fittings are not threaded, then use a rubber freeze plug.
