    Closing Accessories

      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.

      "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 !!!

      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

      Best Ever
      If you don't buy the right size plug (and there are many sizes to pick from) it "will" fall out over time if it's the wrong size plug, it happened to me in the first year. I used the right size plug on two of my skimmers and for the next two years in a row they worked great, not a single leak and the pool was full of water every spring. the pool next door used them with no problems either. I would recommend this plug to anyone trying to save water and is looking for the easy way to winterize!!!

      Good winter plug
      easy installation for saving water that took seconds to install, it plugs right in and fits flat against the skimmer, I tried pulling it back out and it had a suction on it so I just left it alone for fear I might break it. I went back out to look at the skimmer 10 days later and its still sucked into place with no drips. I think you have to push it off from inside behind the plug since there was no directions that came with it. This was money well spent.

      Happy Customer
      Do buy this skimmer plug, I would definitely recommend it to anyone, it shoves right into place with no leaks, without draining the water anymore I should be able to just start up my pool filter the day I open for next summer. Fast delivery too!

      very easy to use cable glides through cover smoothly and tightens very easily holds cover on even on the very windy snowy days
    2. 4 years ago
      I bought this to replace the one that came with the cable which broke the first time I tried to tighten the cable. This one is rugged and durable. I hope to get a few seasons out of it. So far it works great.

      just what I needed.
      Needed a cable for my winter cover, since it broke during a storm. Great price, and fast delivery! Easy as pie to set up.

      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!

      Still Works great 5 years in!
      Purchased two of these 5 years ago. Both fit perfectly and make blowing out the lines a simple task. Never once had a leaking issue or functional issues with these. I clean them off nicely before each years installation and gently coat the rubber parts with pool lube just to be sure. Have them in my hand ready to install for a 6th closing, very impressed with this purchase!

      easy line purging
      I prefer not to drop my water level for winter closing. This valve makes blowing out the return lines a piece of cake. Eliminates my need for line antifreeze. Awesome product.

      Easy filling and nice looking
      They work better than the pilows. Birds or dogs cant punture them. I do tie them with a string just to make sure the wind doesn't blow the cover off,even thow they snap on. Need to fill with water by cover as the arent strong enough to carry.

      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.

      Finally, something that works
      With living in the windy north its very had to find something that actually works and holds the winter cover down securely. Those blue bags need to be replaced every year and get costly. The Aqua Blocks worked wonderfully. Lids don't snap on well but we used large zips ties to solve the problem. Through all the wind and snowstorms the Aqua Blocks didn't move! Nice to open the pool and have hardly any worms. Buying another dozen this year.

      SO SIMPLE!!
      We've been using the bungee plug for the past two years on our in ground pool - SO SIMPLE! It takes a few minutes before all the water comes out of the lines though. We used a heavy duty shop vac (could have been the problem with a previous reviewer).
    2. 3 months ago
      Better than I had hoped.
      Closed my inground pool yesterday. They work great! Used a large shop vac. One plug was stuck shut. I removed the bungee from the body of the plug and reinstalled bungee. Worked great. A real time saver.

      Easy Enough
      Just purchased these this year so I don't know if they work or not yet. The were very easy to install the only problem I see is that there is no holes in the top to allow you to blow out the lines this make it a little more difficult. But other than that I think they were okay.

      Implode due to vacuum pressure
      Simple to use, just screw in. I have a large in ground pool and my lines create a natural vacuum when they're drained during winterizing. Found that these units do implode on themselves under that pressure, but not enough to fail. Work fine though despite this.

      Saved me from lowering water level.
      I bought this to prevent me from having to lower my water level below the skimmer because my water delivery guy told me that because of the gas prices water delivery price was going to increase. I used this and it worked great it has already paid for itself 50x.

      Very easy to close my pool!
      I have used the Pool Pillow Pal for the past 4 years and I love it! So much easier than string. I never had a problem with my Pal detaching, so I was surprised by some reviews, but my neighbors detached a couple years ago, but he didn't clean the area good on the cover, so it probably didn't seal well. No problem for him since that one time either. Great product, just have to make sure the cover is clean and dry!

      So easy to use and made covering the pool a breeze!

      They came undone within a week. We had a strong wind and the air got underneath our cover so that may have been the cause
