    Closing Kits

    1. 4 years ago
      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.

      Perfect fit
      A simple thing like plugs often give us fits - the wing nut turns the screw and they don't tighen or the rubber cracks - not the case with these, installed them out of the package - perfect fit and operation

      Great product
      I used this product as part of the deluxe winter closing kit. I will buy an extra bottle next year to keep on hand to prevent any algae, as I always seem to have a problem in the late summer.

      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.

      I'm sold!
      Short version: this stuff works! Longer version: For the past several years I've been opening my 20,000 gallon (w/ mesh safety cover) pool to find it so green and nasty looking (due to the mesh safety cover), that at times I thought draining it might be a better option. That said, I figured I would give this [Pool Magic Plus Phosfree Pool Cleaner] a try, especially since it was still relatively warm when I closed the pool. I did the normal closing procedure, but this time added Pool Magic ... read more too. Then in March, I added a second bottle (as the product recommends). Well, I just pulled the pool cover off and... WOW! This stuff REALLY works! I was expecting to see the usual algae green water that's so dark and 'thick' you can't see the bottom of the pool (or the steps for that matter). However, this year, not only is the water not green but, for the first time EVER, I can actually see the bottom of the pool (even in the deep end)!

      Winter Algaecide
      I have been using the In the swim winter algaecide for about 12 years.... Works great... I put one quart in at closing and I add a quart about ten day before I open the pool in the spring.....

      long lasting

      Easy open
      I used The Winter Pill for the first time when I closed the pool last September. I opened the pool in early May. The water was pretty clear. Best of all The Winter Pill caused the algae to form big floc and drop to the pool bottom where it could be vacuumed up very easily. This pool opening was the easiest in about 25 years and least costly in terms of chemicals needed at opening. I am definitely going to use The Winter Pill again next year.

      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!!!

      Works Great!
      I bought this last year around this time and just threw it in and covered my pool. When I opened my pool again at the end of April my pool was a clear and clean looking as it was when I covered it. I didn't use any other closing chemicals, just closed off and drained my pump and let the ball do it's work.

      Awesome product!!!
      I bought this winterizing kit with winter ball last fall to close down our 4 ft X 16 ft. above ground pool. I was shocked when my husband took our cover off of the pool! It was crystal clear!!! By far the best thing that we have used to close down our pool we are ordering it again!!! Awesome product!!!

      Great product easy to use!
      I’ve used this kit the last couple of years and the pool opens crystal clear. In the Northeast where your pool is closed a good amount a time, this kit makes it easy to know when you open your pool you won’t have any issues awaiting you.

      Everything I needed including instructions!
      Fairly new pool owner, did my research and got everything I needed today do the closing from here. As always orders always come in a timely manner. Only thing I would want different is to not have to close the pool
    1. 2 months ago
      Every year from now on!!!
      We bought this last year “hoping” It would help when we opened the pool the next year. Let me just say WOW. My water was crystal clear. Yes I had some tad vacuuming to do (frogs laid eggs and they had died and went to the bottom) I will use this every single year. For what this cost and if u don’t use it. The cost of opening your pool and getting your water right cost a LOT more and the headache!!!! Highly recommend 10 stars!!!!!

      Fast delivery!
      we have used in the swim for quite a few years. The winter pool closing kits take all the guesswork out of closing our pool. We also order the "socks" to put in the skimmer basket to keep all the bugs & leaves out of my filter.

      No Worries
      The fear of water freezing in your pool lines and causing lines to burst or other serious and expensive complications that haunts pool owners all winter is put to ease when using winter antifreeze in your pool lines. The antifreeze is easily poured down your lines to prevent water from freezing within and continues to guard against freezing all winter long. In the spring there is minimal clean up. You can not put a price on the reduction of worries this product relieves customers of when ... read more applying winter antifreeze to your lines.

      Keep pipes from Freezing
      I buy 2 gallons of anti freeze every year and my pipes have never frozen throughout the winter.

      It Works
      I live in the south and have an above ground pool that I do not close for winter. I only have a few trees around and after the leaves have all fallen I clean the pool. We have had a few weeks of 28 degree temps and I always poyr in a bottle of pool anti-freeze to keep the filter and pump from freezing. This stuff works great! When I open the pool (Salt water) I do a shock, and then replace some of the salt that has washed out. Jump in and enjoy.

      Straight Forward
      Works as advertised and I have been using these for years. I find the sponge particularly worthless, but whatever, it comes with the kit.

      Good Products, Good Price
      I have been using this kit for the past 7 years to close my in ground pool and it works quite well. My pool opening is easier thanks to the winter chemicals included with this kit.

      Winterizing Kits
      I used this last fall and when i opened the pool in the spring. the water was just about clear. If it wasnt for the neighbors pine needles there would have been no work at all. Worth the extra $$ plus I got the $10 off

    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
