    Closing Kits

      Pool Closing Plugs
      The plugs are fine, but more expensive than at my local pool store.

      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.

      Wonderful service!
      We were very happy with the product. The explanation of the product was very understandable.

      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 name says it all! MAGIC!
      We use this product when closing and opening our pool. Before we started using this product we always had a water scum line when we opened the pool. The enzymes in this product break down organics, which prevent scum-line formation. No more scrubby mitt clean-up! This product makes spring clean easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend this product.

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

      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!!!!

      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.

      Wonderful
      Best algaecide ever! My pool water looks just as clear at spring time opening as it did at fall closing! I would not use any other brand!

      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!

      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.

      No Regrets
      Perfect! Second year using this bundle for my 40000 gal inground pool. Makes it very easy to open up in the Spring. If you haven’t hired someone to open/close your pool, this is the way to go!

      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

      If you care about your pool - buy this!
      As my pool has aged, opening it has been more difficult year after year. I live in the Midwest so we get very cold winters and lots of sun in the Spring. More algae appeared year after year and I just accepted it. Would take me 1-2 weeks to get the pool clear. Found this last year and used the kit. Absolutely amazing! When I closed it last year, I followed the instructions in the kit (very easy). I then added another bottle of winter algaecide in early March. When I opened the pool in April, the ... read more water was very clear. I had the pool ready to swim in 2 days.

      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.

      WINTERIZING WAS A BREEZE !
      I was extremely pleased with my winterizing kit. I had everything I needed in the amounts required for my size pool and the instructions were clear, precise, and easy to follow. Closing up my pool was a breeze and I will be back in the spring before I reopen my pool for the season. In addition, once I placed my order - I was kept apprised of it's progress and had my kit in my hands within 48 hours. Very professional company with competitive prices. Gets my vote hands down.

      Good product, bad description
      This item was exowhat I wanted and also came with great instructions. This is my first year with a pool therefore my first year closing one. However, the description when trying to buy was terrible. Their were different winterizing kits like "deluxe" and other. None of them had hob big of a pool they were for in description. And the instructions didn't either. Hopefully I got the correct one for my pool. Hopefully this is something that can be updated.

      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.

      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.

      Ultimate Winterizing Kit
      This is the second Winterizing Kit I've purchased from In The Swim. I bought the first one last year for pool closing, and followed the directions. When I opened the pool this spring, this was the first time ever that I found the pool water as crystal clear and beautiful as it was when I installed my winter cover. This kit WORKS, and I'll be buying one every year when I close the pool.

      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.

    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
