    Closing Kits

    1. 1 decade ago
      Excellent product
      I have used Pool Magic for several years now and it has proven to be an extremely effective treatment to jump start my pool opening. I also use it to close up the pool in the fall. Well worth using.

      BY far the best thing ever made
      i close ALOT of pool here on the nj shore...As long as there is no algae when u close the pool, adding this bottle will keep it that way. Ive even added it to pools with some algae at the closing and the pools opened MUCH better then expected. i HIGHLY reccomend ALL of natural chemisty's products. The "Pool perfect +Phos free" weekly during the summer will make your pool the nicest in town.. besides no algae, your filter will stay cleaner, no scum lines, and the water feels like silk.. i really ... read more cant say enough good things about this company... Check out "nature 2" products as well... ANOTHER great product!

      The name says it all! MAGIC!
      We use this product when closing and opening our pool. Before we started using this product we always had a water scum line when we opened the pool. The enzymes in this product break down organics, which prevent scum-line formation. No more scrubby mitt clean-up! This product makes spring clean easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend this product.

      Great product
      I live in the Deep South , so not much concern about freezing, but this kit does a great job of keeping the pool algae and stain free. It’s my third year of using this, and each time I open the pool it’s just as good as when I closed it. I will continue to use this product and highly recommend.

      The Best
      Used this closing kit for years and always opened the pool to clean clear water. That is until last year when I procrastinated and didn't order. I stopped at the local pool store and bought their closing kit. Last spring when I pulled back the cover I was greated with cloudy dirty water that took days of filtering and multiple shocks...This year it was back to the In the Swim closing kit...Time saved is money earned

      "Great products for pool people at a Great Price"!
      I have been using this kit for years. Follow the directions, and when opening the pool in the spring, it looks as clear as it did when I closed it for the winter. Have never had a bad experience with any products that I purchase from In The Swim. Come to think of it, I buy all my pool products from In The Swim. Thank you for the service you provide and that includes customer service. Kudos !!!

      Great!
      Just closed our pool and I have used this in the past, but not for the last couple of years. We decided we didn't want to take weeks and tons of $ opening and bought this. I'm sure it will work great, it has in the past. Super fast shipping as usual!!

      Ultimate Winterizing Kit
      This is the second Winterizing Kit I've purchased from In The Swim. I bought the first one last year for pool closing, and followed the directions. When I opened the pool this spring, this was the first time ever that I found the pool water as crystal clear and beautiful as it was when I installed my winter cover. This kit WORKS, and I'll be buying one every year when I close the pool.

      No Regrets
      Perfect! Second year using this bundle for my 40000 gal inground pool. Makes it very easy to open up in the Spring. If you haven’t hired someone to open/close your pool, this is the way to go!

      Ultimate Winterizing Kit from now on
      Although our pool is just 18,000 gallons we decided to give the Ultimate Winterizing Kit a try when we closed it last year. When we took the pool cover off in the spring the water was much clearer than years past and it took us less time to get the pool up & running. As a result we've decided to use the Ultimate Winterizing kit from now on.

      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.

      Pool Closing Plugs
      The plugs are fine, but more expensive than at my local pool store.

      A "must have" for closing pool
      When we purchased the ball last fall, I was little doubtful as to how well it would actually work. It was smaller than I was expecting and didn't look like much. HOWEVER..........when we opened the pool this spring the water was clear and I was amazed!! I'm getting ready to order our Winter Ball for this year's closing and I just hope In The Swim has this product as long as we have a pool!!!

      We Bought It Again!
      We first bought this for closing our pool in 2017. When we opened our pool in Spring, 2018, the pool was crystal clear. Worked so well for us last winter, we decided to use it again!

      THE GREATEST!!
      I have had this above-ground pool since 1987 and this is the BEST product ever. I used it the winter of 2007-2008 and the pool was clean when I opened it. I thought it may have been because we had 100+" of snow. I used it again last winter and the pool was also clear this spring. I have not been using any other chemicals when I close the pool for several year because I never found that they work. THIS DOES WORK!!!

      Works The Best!!!
      I have used Algaecide 60 plus for years and love it! I previously purchased the "name brands" at local stores because they were cheaper. Well, they were not cheaper in the long run! I would use more and more without noticeable clearing of the pool water. When I finally switched to Algaecide 60 I was not very confident that I would see an improvement. I was wrong! It may cost more than the other initially, but it last a long time if used as directed. It helps keep my pool sparkling all season! I ... read more recommend it to all pool owners!

      The best, non-copper Algecide.
      This is the only Algaecide I buy or would recommend to a friend. First, it has NO copper. Copper is the traditional old-school algaecide and what is in the cheap pool store blue stuff. Now Copper does work very well as algae hates copper, BUT copper will build up over time and eventually react with your chlorine giving you the dreaded GREEN HAIR. Yes, green hair is caused by excess copper, not chlorine as the urban legend goes. This algaecide is copper free and non-foaming. It works ... read more exceptionally well and won't make you look like you work in the Emerald City.

      No more scrubbing the pool.
      I used to scrub my pool even the chlorine level was adequate. Then I tried some cheap copper based algaecide and it worked really well. But I later discovered stain spots around my pool. Did some more research and found polymer based. Expensive but a perfect solution to save the labor. Owning a pool is easier now, totally worth the $

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Closing Kits

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Close Your Pool With The Right Winter Pool Chemicals

    During the long off season in the snowbelt – for those that winterize their swimming pool – the water is not being circulated, filtered or sanitized - making your pool the perfect breeding ground for algae. Our winter pool closing kits have been specifically designed and formulated to provide you with the exact combination of powerful winterizing chemicals to help ensure a swift opening next spring, without additional chemicals needed to restore water clarity. All of our In The Swim Pool Winter Kits Include:


    Chlorine-Free Shock

    Our Chlorine-Free Shock is a powerful oxidizing agent, but is non-chlorine, and will never harm your pool surfaces or your pool cover. Chlorine-Free winter shock also dissolves faster than chlorine, and maintains greater efficacy at a wider range of pH level. All of our Winter Pool Kits contain our premium non-chlorine shock oxidizer to burn off any remaining impurities, while not reducing the effectiveness of other chemicals.

    Time-Release Winter Floater

    Our exclusive time-release Winter Floater discharges a non-chlorine oxidizing agent into your pool water for months after it's been covered. Not only does this winter chemical floater sanitize your pool water, but also works to remove carbon dioxide from the water - eliminating one of algae's primary food sources. Unlike chlorine tablet pool floaters, our non-chlorine Winter Floater will never stain your plaster or vinyl. 

    Winter Stain Away

    Specifically formulated for closing your pool, Winter Stain Away helps eliminate stain-causing metals and minerals that can leave your pool with costly liner stains or hard-to-clean waterline build-up. Winter Stain Away sequesters metals – keeping them tied up in solution, to prevent them from precipitating out during winter. Works wonders on mesh safety covered pools, and keeps working all year round to help prevent metal and mineral stains.

    Winterizer

    The final step to preventing algae next spring is to pour in our special winter pool algaecide. Dr. Pool's own proprietary polymer blend combines in perfect harmony with the other items in your pool winterizing kit. When used in conjunction with our other pool closing chemicals our Winterizer Algaecide is the perfect "knock-out" punch against algae. Lasts all winter long, even into a warm spring.

    Winter Sorb 

    Made exclusively for our Winterizing Kits, the Winter Sorb™ can absorb up to 40 times its weight in residual suntan lotions and body oils to prevent grease, grime and waterline scum. Oils are not good for keeping a clear pool that is winterized. They provide a low grade food source for algae, and can clog up the waterways, easily combining with free chlorine to create chloramines, which get in the way of free chlorine trying to do its job.


    Buy the Winter Kit that best fits your pool size. Don't order a kit that's too small, it's better to have some extra chemical in the pool to help guard against cover tears, heavy debris or warm springtime temperatures. And if you close early, or open late in the season, to buy the next larger size winter kit. 

    To help select the best Winter Closing Kit, use these formulas to closely calculate the number of gallons in your pool.
     - Round Pools: Diameter x Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons
     - Oval Pools: Long Diameter x Short Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons
     - Rectangular Pools: Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons
