    Closing Kits

      I found the One
      Have had an above ground pool for over 10yrs and dreaded every fall winterizing my pool. About 3 yrs ago I discovered In the Swim winterizing kits which for the price were a dream come true and then they added this pill which the first year I skipped. Then my son ordered it the following year, unbeknownst to me, when I gave him my CC and ask him to order the kit. I will never go without it now!!! What a world of difference, 2 years in a row, when I open my pool in the spring!! Just try it one ... read more year and follow the directions to the letter!! I actually put a little over what they recommend and every year my water is clear when I pull the cover back, well other than the leaves from the darn tree next door!!!!

      Ultimate Winterizer with Pill
      I bought the kit about 10 days ago. No winter sorb included when it clearly states it's included and now free shipping and handling with $50 order. When I ordered it was $100 free shipping and handling. I will wait longer next year.

      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.

      pool shock
      I have been using this and the super pool shock for years. Always a great product

      Stain after using shock
      Stained the bottom of my plastered pool black within 24 hours of changing the entire pool's water. After about 36 hours, the stain spontaneously disappeared. Not sure why. It was not algae and didn't scrape off with a metal bristled brush. I'll try it one more time since the adverse reaction wasn't permanent.

      bags of 68% pool shock
      I got the 68% bags. It does a good job of raising the CL level in my pool. I'm very disappointed that there is a white powder/residue that does not dissolve and settles on the pool bottom and has to be vacuumed because it doesn't dissolve. What purpose does that white residue serve?? I didn't have that problem with Doheney's 68% pool shock. Is this why this is cheaper??

      Great anti freeze
      This product I have been using now for 4-5 years. Just fill up your underground pipes with this, seal them off and you wont have to worry about freezing, cracking pip[e, etc... at all during the winter.
    2. 6 years ago
      It does the job
      I use a couple of gallons when closing in skimmer lines. It's a little pricey, but does the job.
    3. 1 month ago
      I recommend it
      It works well as anti-freeze, even in a really cold NY winter, and the fact that it's non-toxic is important to me.

      Clear instructions, easy to use.
      I have used this kit a few times and the results have been great. The instructions are clear and concise and we haven't had major problems with opening so it obviously works okay.

      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.

      Works great!
      Used this product last fall. My 19th opening was the best ever! Will use it again this fall.

      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.....
    3. 5 years ago
      Great Winter Algaecide
      I buy the winterizing kit every year and a extra quart of winter algaecide to add in march never had a problem with the water when opening the pool. great products from in the swim

      This Is My Pool Go To
      I have been ordering this winterizing kit for at least 15 years. Just order per size of pool and follow the directions. Each and every year, my water is sparkling clean when opening our pool in the spring. People ask me how I do it... I also order the start-up kit each spring. Makes pool maintenance so easy.

      Closing kit
      One year I tried the closing kit from my local pool store and my pool was green when I opened it next year. NEVER again! I will always buy my closing kit from the swim!!

      Closing kit
      We use this closing kit every year. The pool is clean and required minimal cleaning when we open in the Spring.

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

      Openings are great with it used at closing
      Just like the review title states. Openings of my 30,000 gallon pool is easy and great with using this product at closing. I also used it at opening. I didn't get algae grow at all this late winter to opening at the end of May and I live in western MD. I will purchase again in the fall for closing and one bottle used in late winter and then for opening.

      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)!

      THE GREATEST!!
      I have had this above-ground pool since 1987 and this is the BEST product ever. I used it the winter of 2007-2008 and the pool was clean when I opened it. I thought it may have been because we had 100+" of snow. I used it again last winter and the pool was also clear this spring. I have not been using any other chemicals when I close the pool for several year because I never found that they work. THIS DOES WORK!!!

      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 ... read more 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!
    3. 6 years ago
      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

    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
