    Closing Kits

    1. 8 years ago
      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.

      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!!!

      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

      Best products ever
      Our closing kit for our pool came next day as always. We used a kit from Great Escape last year and pool was a light green so we are back with in the swim and looking forward to a crystal clear opening in spring as we have always had in past seasons. Thank you for great products and sevice. We will never stray again

      Keep a pool clean throughout the winter
      The product was received in good condition. The product will not be used until late September or mid October. Results of product performance will not be known until the pool opens in late May 2019. I welcome this product from IN The Swim, it maintains a clean pool throughout-out the winter. Been with this company for over 40 years.

      Great product
      I always buy my pool chemicals and accessories from you guys and have never been dissatisfied. The prices are way lower than the place I purchased my pool from. Thanks from a happy customer.

      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!

      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)!

      Great Product
      This was recommend by our pool installation contractor. We tried the Pool magic and have used it for the last five seasons.

      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.

      Pool closing chemicals
      Very good product. I buy this every year when I close my pool and the water is clear when I open in the spring. I would recommend this product. The key to closing your pool is to wait until the weather turns cool otherwise you take a chance on the water being too warm when you close and algae grows in warm water. If you have an above ground pool I would recommend the plastic wrap also to go around the pool to keep dirt from blowing up under the cover, which I also buy from In The Swim.

      Good stuff
      Very effective product. I pour a bottle in my pool when I open it and another one in when I close it in the fall. Have not had an algae problem ever. Good stuff.

      Algacide 60 rates a 10 for me!
      I was told by our pool guy to use algaecide 60 & I would never have any problems..well I have used it ever since 2002 when we put our pool in & i can honestly say I have never lost my pool yet to.. algae green, black or otherwise!! Love this stuff!!

      Really works every algae
      I had yellow algae that I could not get rid of. I placed this product in pool, in less then a week the algae cleared up. Great product treats every algae.

      It does the job
      I use a couple of gallons when closing in skimmer lines. It's a little pricey, but does the job.

      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
    2. 6 years ago
      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.

      Excellent Results
      This winter will be the third winter I have used this product. Each year my pool is crystal clear when I pull off the winter cover. When I purchased my home from the previous owner it was Green and took me weeks and several $100.00 dollars to get it up an running. I would recommend this to any pool owner. Will Save you Time and Money in the Long Run.

      A great choice of products.
      My purchases from In The Seim have been seamless. I have found that the website is easy to navigate and the descriptions very informative. I have not yet used my last order of a pool closing kit because the directions say not to use it until the water temperature goes below 62 degrees. One other observation, it seems that if a person needs something for the pool and you can't find it in the catalogue or on the website chances are you won't find it anywhere else.

      Good product with proper use
      We have used the deluxe winter kit for our 15x30 foot above ground pool for many years now. What we have learned is to drop in the winter pill in February to extend the protection of the kit into the spring months when it is still to cold at night to be able to uncover and swim, but warm during the days. We also add algicide to the water once the days warm up to keep mosquito larvae at bay until the pump is up and running.

      Best I've ever used
      I have used 4 different techniques/kits since getting a pool. Every other year my pool was green or black when I opened it. Last fall I bought this kit, and this spring when I removed the cover, beautiful, clear water. I've finally found the winner.

    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
