      The Winter Pill packs a powerful punch in one 16oz ball. Just poke a hole in the round plastic casing with the included hole-punch tool (a push-pin) and toss the Winter Pill into the pool. The slow-delivery system will leak out a consistent stream of our winterizing pool chemical all winter long.

      If your pool opens up cloudy, or worse, green – you need the Winter Pill's powerful mix of chemicals. Enzymes seek out and destroy oils and scum in the pool, clarifiers coagulate suspended matter and sequestering agents keep minerals and organic matter from staining your pool surfaces. Especially useful for mesh covered winter pools!

      Winter Pill makes your spring opening much less work. It's so easy to use, and you will be amazed at the effect of this little ball of winter chemicals.

      Our winter pool formula removes and binds up organic matter that gets in the way of your winter chemical kit from working most effectively. The Winter Pill reduces the sanitizer demand by digesting oils and organics, and bringing together larger, more easily attacked clumps of contaminants.

      Try the Winter Pill when you close the pool this year to protect your pool surfaces, and help your winter pool kit from becoming depleted too soon.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this at the end of September 2016 and threw it in the pool when we closed it. We'll see what happens in the spring of 2017.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and efficient service I purchased a winter-pill after reading the reviews about this product. We live in Minnesotavsnd I put the winter-pull in the pool when it was closed for the winter. I won't know how the product works until next spring but I can honestly say that the service was efficient and very good.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never close without it. I"ve had my pool for 6 years and have never closed without it. Have no idea what my pool would look like without it and wont ever know. With the exception of 1 spring ,cleanup has been a breeze and the 1 year i had a mess was because of a faulty cover and in the swim took care of it. Love it!!!!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it every year! We order this ball for our pool closing every year for about 5 years now and always get it promptly. I think the price has also remained the same for all these years also.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hopeful The aquapill-winterpill is brand new/first time user for my pool. I am keeping fingers crossed that it does the job it claims to do. Let's connect in May 2017 for rating and final review.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest opening I was sceptical when I purchased this for our above ground Intex pool. We live in the country and usually have a dark green mess when we uncover the pool in the spring. We didn't have the green mess this year when we opened it. Yes! I highly recommend this item.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Followed instructions exactly how I was suppose to. Just opened my pool and the thing is still full and water was a mess. Waste of money didn't help any.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work Bought last year. Opened the pool today, can see this ball floating in dark green water. Didn't work at all! I'd put zero stars but it won't allow that.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great surprise in spring Last year I used the winterball and the closing kit for the first time and when the cover was removed in Spring the water was as clear as the day it was covered over 6 months prior. The pool was jump in ready with little effort on my part. So it was done again this year without a doubt.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Winter Ball Seems like a waste of money. I was expecting it to be a lot bigger. I guess I won't know if it really works until spring. But unless it had some magic potion in it I can't imagain it is going to do anything.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ball The winter ball is small, will fit in palm of your hand. But it really works great. Just toss in your pool when you close it and keeps your water crystal clear all winter.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this ball!!! I heard all the horror stories from family and friends with pools about how they had the worst time getting their water balanced every year when they opened their pools. I ordered this winter ball last year and my pool was crystal clear when I opened it!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and easy I've used this product two yrs. in a row without any other closing kit and my oval 22x18 pool stays blue all winter. Simple and easy to use! Love it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Like a Charm! Purchased this item after reading reviews. My above-ground pool opened as clear as it's ever been. One caution: Cut down the amount of algaecide (by 2/3 in my case) In the Spring; otherwise, you'll have to wait a week or two for the foam to dissipate.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet I have had my pool for 18 yrs. No matter what I used in the pool for winter, I would open it in spring to cloudy, green water. Last fall was the first I tried this. I was somewhat reluctant on how a little ball will allow the pool to be so clear when I open it. But it was clear as can be.I can see every little speck of debris that was left in there when I closed it, not to mention the liner pattern so easily seen. I have suggested to all my pool friends to try this

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from The winter ball Love this product. Used it two years in a row. It worked great both years. So that is why I'm doing this review. It does what it said it will do. Clean water both years. Before using it I had green water every year. Just different shades of it. When used per instructions it will give you clean water in the spring. Great product.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Open in 12 years! After a warm Winter and warmer Spring, expected to find a very murky pool. We judge opens by how many days after opening day it takes to make out the shape of the white drain cover at 8 foot end. Then how long to see the StSteel screws in the drain cover. WOW saw the screws as soon as the cover came off! Best Open ever -looked the same as when I closed it up.... 6 months ago. Found a dead shrew at bottom of stairs, something like this in a normally murky pool- would have taken "days" to digest with chemicals- let alone see it and scoop out. So I know I saved time and money and will buy a winter ball for the coming closing in the fall from now on!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazed After 14 years of opening a pool to a swamp, the only change was adding this in the closing of the pool 2010. Opening May of 2011 was amazing clear. Even after having 2 90 degree days(which would normally cook up some algea) before we took off the mesh cover, it was the cleariest it has ever been.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money My pool always has a serious algae bloom when I open it in the spring. I tried the winter ball when I closed the pool last winter. The algae bloom is worse this year, and the winter ball has a good 1/2" of algae over its entire surface.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my better purchases for our pool Tried this product last year. Opened our pool in the Spring...water was clear and clean with no stains and no green pea look. Have already recommended the Winter Ball to friends. Great product!!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! I added this to a winterizing kit last year to close my above ground 18'X 33' oval pool. The Spring opening was fantastic! Probably the best opening ever since we had the pool installed. Water was clean and clear, no green pea soup!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever this is the best...just poke holes, throw in pool and cover.. I didnt even add another winterizing kit . When I opened my pool the water was crystal clear!! I would highly recommend this to all my friends.. I am ordering another one this year..thank you in the swim for such a great product.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!
