The Winter Ball
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 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!

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.

Don't waste your money
My pool always has a serious algae bloom when I open it in the spring. I tried the winter ball when I closed the pool last winter. The algae bloom is worse this year, and the winter ball has a good 1/2" of algae over its entire surface.

One of my better purchases for our pool
Tried this product last year. Opened our pool in the Spring...water was clear and clean with no stains and no green pea look. Have already recommended the Winter Ball to friends. Great product!!
