      Not Perfect but Very Good
      My water was crystal clear, but I did have algae growth on bottom. I just couldn't get it to clean up when we opened. After a water test we found the phosphorus too high, so it looks like we had other issues. All is crystal clear now!

      Winterizing Wonders
      Third year now that I have used the In The Swim winterizing package for my in-ground pool. Works like a charm and saves the cost of hiring someone to do it for me. This spring, the water needed less attention than prior seasons due to addition of floating clorinator included in the package. Thanks for making opening easier but my former pool guy misses the business. Maybe he'll pay you not to sell your products ??

      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.

      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.

      InTheSwim Instructions Almost Always Lacking
      Guys, you've GOT to get it together on your opening and closing instructions. The closing instructions shown on the website page above these comments tell us to add Pool Magic first, Phosphate Remover second, Shock third. Your printed instructions with the kit say to add Shock first, WAIT a half-hour, and then add Pool Magic and the Phosphate Remover. Your online directions tell us to lower the pool level BEFORE adding anything. Anyone who does will soon realize that the pump STILL needs to be ... read more running for all of the chemicals, so lowering the water would have been a big mistake. The product is great and I really enjoy purchasing from your company, but I can't understand why you can't be clearer in these situations.

      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.

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

      Does what it’s supposed to do.
      Good product, they even tape the bottle caps for extra security during shipping

      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!!!

      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!!!!

      Works well
      Works well and has good directions. I have used it in past years and was impressed with the cleanliness and clarity of the pool upon opening in spring. Well worth the expense.

      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.

      This grouping really works!
      I've been purchasing the In The Swim pool closing chemicals for 10-11 yrs and the addition of the Pool Magic products as well as the addition of the Winter Pill worked the best for my inground vinyl pool last Spring. I followed the instructions and added the chemicals before the professional pool reps came to close it. Upon opening the water was almost clear. After using the In The Swim pool opening chemicals along with the usual vacuuming, the water was fit for swimming in no time at all. ... read more As long as their chemicals keep working, I will keep purchasing them.

      Must Have For Closing Pool
      I used this product when I closed my pool and when I uncovered it in the Spring - the water was still crystal clear. You couldn't tell it had be covered all winter. Wonderful product!

      Works Great
      This well be the third year that we are using POOL MAGIC. Pool has been very clear each spring opening

      Crystal clear pool on spring opening
      We've been using this product for 3 years (after a horrible experience opening our pool) and we wouldn't close or open our pool without it now. Great product.

      Easy to use and clear water in the spring!
      We have used this winterizing kit for several years now. It is so easy to winterize the pool with this kit, and the price is definitely cheaper than the kits from Leslie's. Every spring when we open the pool, the water is crystal clear and ready to go for the summer. This kit is a winterizing must!

      Great Product
      I have used this winter kit several times and it has kept our pool crystal clean throughout the winter. When we take off the winter cover in the spring, all we have to do is fill the pool up and put the opening kit in and we are good to go. This makes maintaining the pool through the winter a breeze - great product.

      6 Years of use.
      This is what I've been using every year for the last 6 years when putting the winter cover on my pool, and there has only been 1 year that the pool wasn't clear water when I took the cover off and that was just because of a small tear in the cover that I didn't notice until I was taking the cover off the pool.

    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
