    Closing Accessories

    1. 1 decade ago
      Last winter the rubber plug that I'd been using for years didn't hold & I lost water needlessly. Should have gotten this a long time ago - it's so much better than the rubber plug!

      Easy Easy Easy
      I purchased these pool valves and love them. after fighting with the rubber winter plugs the babies are a snap just screw them in and then blow out your lines and put on the rubber cap and you are done!! Now you don't have to worry if you got the rubber plug in tight enough or that it might pop out..

      Great Product!!
      I WOULD SPEND A LOT OF TIME DRAINING AND REFILLING MY INGROUND POOL AT THE END AND BEGINNING OF EACH SEASON. THESE VALVES HAVE SAVED ME SO MUCH TIME WINTERIZING AND RE-OPENING MY POOL EACH YEAR. ANOTHER GREAT THING IS THAT YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO REPLACE THE STANDARD VALVES WITH PLUGS DURING THE WINTER. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY CENT!!

      Super impressed with this product
      After years of struggling to get the water blown out of the return lines in my in ground, often by myself requiring all kinds of rigs to hold the blower secure while I tried to get the plugs in before too much backflow into the lines, I came across this product. Its like having another person available to help, without having to actually find another person to help when you are ready to close the pool. I have used them for several years and boy has it saved me hours and hours of time and ... read more trouble. I used to dread closing the pool and worry all winter if the lines actually had been blown clear enough to avoid freezing and cracking something. There ARE caps that snap on after you are done using the one way valve to blow out the lines too, to prevent water or ice pressure from seeping back into them over the winter months. Somehow I neglected to put them on last year and one of the valves got damaged but still didn't let water into the lines and fittings themselves, so I'm back to buy another. It was my fault, though, not failure of the valve itself in any way. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with this product. Yes, it does work and yes, I never want to have to close my pool again without them!

      Works great
      I don't know why I waited so long for this. My father in law used this and recommended it.Wrapped my 18 rnd about 3 times. Cover stayed in place and pool opened this year very clear. Nothing got in. Used the rest of the roll this year to wrap 3 times. This just adds an extra level to keep the pool clean and not blow up the cover and rip. Expecially with the winter we had last year. Will take the time to add the wrap at closing from here on out.

      Kept my pool tight as a drum
      If your putting this on by yourself then its a little hard getting it started until your able to start your second time around. But over all its a good product, I used it in 2008, and I'm going to use it again this year. I started at the bottom of my cover and went around the cover and then drop down one and then brought it back up to cover the top again and never had any problem. In fact it was on there so well, it was a little difficult to remove.

      Good Product!
      My above ground pool is out in the open, with high winds up to 40 - 50 mph at times, and I constantly had rips in my covers and ripped out grommets from the high winds, before using this product. Winter 2008, was the first time using, and held up for most of the time. After about 6 months in the high wind and harsh winter weather, began moving and came up on the windiest side of the pool. But when taking off cover this summer, did not have any rips or ripped out grommets in the cover like ALL ... read more other seasons. This product saved me a lot of $$$ in not having to replace a wind damaged cover, and for the price, you can't beat it. Getting ready to purchase again for this winter 'windy' season!!! Highly recommend if your pool is in a windy area to save your cover from wind damage!!!

      A MUST HAVE for Fall clean up!
      This is the best invention for Fall clean up I have ever used. We call it "The Witches hat" because we use it in the fall (Halloween) and it resembles a witch hat when it is in use. It works with water pressure from a garden hose (can use your house faucet or your pump for your pool cover, either work fine.) I have a 40 foot long pool and I get all the leaves out in minutes with this great tool. Your pool filter doesn't get overworked or cloged. You just empty the mesh bag into a wheelbarrow and ... read more then push it to your compost bin and"ta da" you're done. If you hate cleaning leaves out of your pool....PLEEEEEEEEASE....buy this and see how easy it is.

      THE NAME SAYS IT ALL
      Our pool borders the edge of the woods, so we always have trouble with leaves especially in the fall. This year was no different. So I purchased a leaf gulper less than a month ago and it works beautifully. So much that we are not going to cover for the winter. That means no dreaded winter cover to fight on or keep on during the windy winter. We've decided the use of the leaf gulper will suffice if more leaves hit the pool. The only thing I'd wish I'd know is that it came with it's own net bag. ... read more Instead I bought a new one where I wouldn't had to.
    3. 1 year ago
      A few little gulps and leaves are gone!
      We purchased this, but did not use it the first year....that has not happened since!!!!!! .We live in the country with huge old trees surrounding us....depending on when we close the pool in the fall, we sometimes have quite a few leaves around the bottom drain of our inground pool when we open it in the Spring. You hook the hose up to this thing, and the pressure from the water of the hose forces those leaves up into the bag in not time! This is one of our most favorite pool "gotta haves!!".. ... read more it makes opening the pool so much easier!

      So so
      This is a good concept, however it's a one size fits all which makes it difficult to drape the hose flat like the video. This causes the grain not to lay flat on the pool and cover, one end sits up. The hose is to long for an 18' round pool. I email several times to Dryco and asked about this issue and possibly cutting the hose shorter. But no response. None at all. Customer service is horrible in my opinion. How can you make a product and not answer questions about it. In the video is showers ... read more the hose going straight down lay on pool floor then up to return. In the picture it showes hose going straight across from drain to return. Which I think it would work better.

      Marriaged saved
      Wow...saved my marriage! My wife was done with siphoning the nasty water off the cover by mouth. Figured she was gonna leave me this winter over it. I decided that 100 bucks was worth the gamble to get here to stay and it is worth every penny. Installed it while she cooked Sunday breakfast and it has worked perfect since! Pool drained and marriage saved! Thanks! Stephen

      Great Product
      I installed this item on my cover and after a 24 hour rain, my cover was basically dry. The leaves haven't really begun to fall yet, but it appears that with the drain keeping the cover dry, the leaves will blow away and/or dry out and blow away. I've messed around with other cover drain solutions without much luck. I don't like the idea of an electric system that has to be plugged in all winter long, plus they tend to be too heavy. Other siphon type drains seem to become plugged up and really ... read more don't do the job. This is the only system that I have actually found to work. I also had the opportunity to deal with the company that makes this item, and they were very professional.

      Aqua blocks
      I had purchased these blocks 15 years ago at a local pool store . Untill now I could not find a dealer who carried them ( thank you). I needed to replace some that have become brittle and will continue to due the same as the old ones are all replaced. They are a better way to secure your pool cover . The ease of placing and filling make it a breeze . Storing is also better as they stack well one inside the other. Much better than the moldy blue bags I use to use UGH! I highly recommend these ... read more blocks they last much longer that the awful blue bags . The blue bags generally only lasted one year. Do the math it's a much better investment.

      Awesome replacement for water tubes!
      Bought these last year for pool closing after being tired of the tubes losing water all winter. waited to post this until winter went by us. We just opened pool yesterday, they all survived full of water with zero cracks. Drying now to be stacked and stored for next year. Love this alternative!

      Acceptable performance
      This past year was the first year using them. I did not purchase enough of them to go around the whole pool so I had both the blocks and bags. They were just as effective as bags as both had a tendency to be dragged towards the pool. However we did loose a couple of bags during winter due to leakage and that side wound up in the drink. The aqua blocks stayed full. Some of the lids did blow off and had to be put back on several times. Cleanup was super easy, just dump the water and stack. This ... read more year I am getting enough for the other half and possibly positioning them diagonally to keep more weight on the cover to keep it from slipping. I'm done with bags. However they do take up more space in storage.

      They Work Great!
      I had bought some of these plugs when we first set up our 18' above ground pool and they worked great. Now, 8 years later they finally got weather cracked and needed replacement. You can't beat the price considering they kept water from leaking out during the winter for many years. The only change is that the wing nut is now plastic verse metal from 8 years ago. The new plastic wing nut worked great and should last as long as you keep it out of the sun during the summer.
